I'm Georgia-born but a California-boy at heart. I am creative, upfront, hard-working, loyal, imaginative, and spontaneous. I am an active person, enjoy anything new and exciting, and am more than willing to try new things. I'm a very good listener and relish deep conversations. I generally think of myself as a fun person, and try to show those around me a good time. I love to make people laugh. I enjoy life and find that there is always something amusing, and at the same time, poignant to gain from any experience. I believe that everyone has a story to tell, and I am interested in hearing yours. I know what I want in life, and I'm willing to put in the work it takes to get it.
I spend a lot of time creating, whether it's writing, drawing, making jewelry or cgi artwork. I feel that there are so many things that I want to create that I'll never have the time to bring all those ideas into the world. But that never stops me from trying.
I'm also a firm believer that learning is a constantly evolving process, and that the more you learn, the more you have to offer to the world. So I'm always in the process of learning something new, and finding new ways to expand my mind and heighten my perspective.
I love 80's music, cheesy movies, planning for the inevitable zombie/robot take-over, reading anything I can get my hands on, pondering how anyone EVER came up with the idea for chain-mail (seriously, its the most eye-crossing, hand-cramping activity in history), debating philosophical or religious ideas, and think that there are few things in life more alluring than intelligent and artistic women. :)
The Fountain, Identity, Boondock Saints, Memento, Requiem For a Dream, Crash, 11:14, In God's Hands, Thank You For Smoking, Meet Bill, Go, Labyrinth, Army of Darkness, Kalifornia, The Usual Suspects, Pathfinder, Deceiver, Inception, The Commitments, Weirdsville, Count of Monte Cristo, INK, The Shape of Things, Closer, Mr. Nobody.
I'm addicted to music, and I mean seriously addicted. I have to have music, of all styles, in my life. Rock, country (though very little), jazz, blues, rap, techno, industrial, pop, punk (I love some good old school punk), world, and basically anything with a beat. Give me a melody or at the very least a message.
As for my favorites? That's a really long list. Since my musical tastes are so varied, I tend to have mix cds in my stereo that befuddle your average listener. Music enhances my life and my imagination, so I like to have a little of everything on hand. But 80's music rocks my world. Here's a few to get you started:
ANYTHING 80's, 30 Seconds to Mars, Delerium, Enigma, Dead Can Dance, My Chemical Romance, AFI, Jonny Lang, Ani DiFranco, Stuck Mojo, Kidney Thieves, Bad Religion, Sublime, Loreena McKennit, Type O Negative, Common Sense, Cold, Atmosphere, The Killers, RA, Poe, Jack Johnson, Rhea's Obsession, Sade, David Bowie, Sevendust, Van Halen, KISS, Sprung Monkey, Tech 9, Agent Orange, Johnny Cash, Silverchair, Violent Femmes, Mono, Henry Rollins Band, Supersuckers, Tapping The Vein, Lords of Acid, Bouncing Souls, The Rolling Stones, Otis Redding, Queen, Peter Gabriel, Jeff Healey Band, Lunachicks, Massive Attack, Lacuna Coil, Deftones, Psychotica, Dropkick Murphys, Zebrahead, The Commitments, Joe Satriani, MC Chris, Sarah McLachlan, Bowling For Soup, Within Temptation....and if I don't stop now, I never will...
Even more fun is my list of bands that should die. But that would require a database beyond my lifetime to create. :)
Firefly, My Name is Earl, Sons of Anarchy, Survivor Man, X-Files, Unsolved Mysteries, Californication, Twin Peaks, The Alaska Experiment, BSG, Deadwood, Carnivale, Spaced, and Dead Like Me. Usually whatever a network will decide to cancel.

You have an open mind, love a good conversation, love to laugh, have something clever to share, you have Tiger-blood, or if you are scared of clowns. (I still don't get it... Why clowns?)
