My self-summary
"Dance first, think later. It's the natural order."

The good stuff is what people simply call wisdom and I like to act on it. HOWEVER, it would be awesome if 90% of my social interaction didn't involve largely restraining myself from being completely honest. My favorite thing in the world to do is catalyse people by shredding their ideas to the core with logic, flip minds/worlds upside down by reminding people of what already is, and then when they're completely vulnerable catch them off guard with compassion. Being kind. Actively listening. Looking for opportunities to invite people to join me in wonder and curiosity, in contributing ideas.
... But I figure a license to ramble ought to be earned, and so I am not yet as unrelenting as I desire to be. I digest the many complex thoughts & hard feelings I generate by drawing (all my life) and writing. I'm from the east coast and people never fail to appreciate how it apparently makes me excessively cool.

I love quotes and proverbs like an adventurer loves waypoints in a desert.
"Twenty years from now you'll be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did." --Mark Twain

I like:
-Barefoot walking / sitting on the floor
-All animals & creatures
-'Meta' philosophy - I mean understanding how ideas are connected to each other
-Power in every real sense, villains, comedians
-Video games, Symphonic music, cinematography
-Digital artwork & illustration
-Architecture (especially Spanish)
-Sex and its ability to heal
-Brie cheese

Long and articulate:
I love sophisticated and intellectual ideas. I enjoy philosophy (though I dislike the word philosophy), psychology, language, neuroscience, and anything I can pay attention to that fuels my understandings and gives my mind something to do in some form or other. Used to be shy. Animals love me. Dubbed 'beastmaster' as per my down-to-earthness with all creatures and Saint Francis for saving bugs out of a swimming pool before I jump in. My sense of humor is occasionally dark but is more shaped by being a classic over thinker. It is impossible to offend me and I used to be one of the healthiest people you would've ever met until that got slightly boring. I like sharing music and making playlists. ♬

My sincere preference is to explore the greater meaningful feelings in life, about the cosmos, about existence, about consciousness and ourselves, perspective, freedom, potential and what one may accomplish in life and truly how. This more often than not means getting away from all the noise of our culture. I actively enjoy avoiding the herd. Thinking about myself thinking about myself thinking about myself gets entangling though, and a good remedy has always been walking into a small movie theater, picking a movie I've never heard of based on the poster, and relaxing to watch in the cool dark. Don't ever see Meek's Cutoff. Most people know me for being a visual artist, being in super good shape, or being deep, but I'll refer to the idea of simply being an old soul. Sometimes I evaluate my actions based on how intelligent they'd be considered 7000 years from now.

I've been drawing my entire life, and went to school to make graphics for video games- drawing, digital illustration, 2D & 3D animation, interface design, all the fun stuff- however I honestly hate the idea of spending my life sitting in front of a screen. I half abandoned it all.

"Believe in yourself, and create your own destiny. Don't fear failure."

Melding the compositions of my life to become as fundamentally independent in thought and 'spirit' as possible.

What I’m doing with my life
I've just begun my own woodworking business, and take odd jobs as well.

I also have two different mobile games which have potential, two labors of love I'm making entirely by myself (doing the art, animation, writing, design, and coding. Music friends.)
My goal is to earn enough money and skills to escape the pervasive bullshit of this culture. I do play the stock market. Please teach me how to garden and cook more good.

"Never get so busy making a life that you forget to make a living."

Deliberately getting into positions to grow, give, and explore serenity about my heart. I always love meeting new people and getting out of my own bubble; exploring the "inexhaustible variety of life"- I like that.

Adventuring & learning to flourish in unpredictability. Really looking for an opportunity to use my grappling hook.
I’m really good at
Connecting complex elaborate and abstract ideas; drawing; martial arts and being physically strong; befriending animals; brain games; remembering my dreams; relaxing my mind in order to soak in and learn.
--
Getting people I barely know to open up and talk about their issues, aka listening. Everyone vents to me, which I enjoy.
The first things people usually notice about me
How calm I am. Calm enough to spare people my tendency to go into the deep end of a conversation within two minutes.

Six things I could never do without
music, good stand-up comedy, fresh food, sex, a place outdoors to enjoy, smart close people to talk to
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My heart, and why it aches so. Psychosomatic?

How at the drop of a hat, with the right insight, I can see the world entirely differently.

The universe, nature, people, perspective
the pale blue dot
How effectively I'm nonverbally communicating with non-human creatures
Myself, thinking about myself
The opposite gender
Improving my artwork
The brutal necessity to make money and occasionally answer to other people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing, working on my games, making expeditions into my ideas, art, and/or the very nature of my mind.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmmm...
You should message me if
... you're interested in:
being involved with nature/animals
video games
chilling out and just being dorks
Carl Sagan / Terence McKenna / Bill Hicks / Alan Watts
going for a walk in the park and conversing / gesticulating about life

(If you know right now that you can't hear my tone of voice, you can't make eye contact with me, you can't see my mannerisms and gestures and body language, you can't hear my intonation. That this text is static, and sterile, and that it's the same for everyone, and that communication here is being withered down to writing skills, barely. LOLOLOL; That an online profile is a pretty innacurate representation of a person.)

*If you have a good proverb to send to me.*
