I love quotes and proverbs, like an explorer 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
-Walking barefoot / sitting on the floor
-Animals & creatures
-'Meta' philosophy - by which I mean understanding how some ideas are connected to others.
-Villains, power, comedians, Bowser
-Video games, Symphonic music, cinematography
-Digital artwork & illustration
(Long winded and articulated:)
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 in some form or other. Sometimes shy. Animals love me. Dubbed 'beastmaster' as per my down-to-earthness with all creatures and Saint Francis for saving every bug out of swimming pools before I jump in. My sense of humor is occasionally dark but is more shaped by overthinking - if you can offend me, definitely message me- and I used to be one of the healthiest people you would've ever met until that got 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, perspective, freedom, and what one may accomplish in life. 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 modest 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. I'm an old man deep down, considering whether my actions would be fundamentally sensible 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 that pretty stuff- however I honestly hate the idea of spending my life sitting in front of a screen, so I half abandoned it all.
"Believe in yourself, and create your own destiny. Don't fear failure."
Beyond that, searching for the right harmonies in my life.
I'm working on two different mobile games which have some financial potential, two labors of love I'm making entirely by myself (doing the art, animation, writing, design, coding, and music.)
My goal is to earn enough money and skills to escape the corruption of this culture. I do play the stock market. Teach me how to garden, and cook.
In terms of my life and not just my living:
Deliberately getting into positions to give serenity to my heart. I always love meeting new people and getting out of my own bubble; exploring the "inexaustible variety of life"- I like that.
Adventuring, & Learning to flourish in unpredictability. Looking for an opportunity to use my grappling hook.
Getting people I barely know to open up and talk about their issues, aka listening. Everyone vents to me, which I enjoy.

(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.)
