I'm an ambient/electronic musician & atheist with a passion for art, science, reason and all things sexy. I've been doing professional print/web graphic design for over 10 years both in freelance and professional capacities. I love to read, engage in thought provoking conversations and experience new things.
I've lived most of my life in small towns but love to take in the big city atmosphere as well. I'm not really into 'clubbing' or the usual night life. I prefer an intimate setting with good friends, good tunes and good conversation much more. I'm interested in moving somewhere new but haven't decided on a new home yet. Want to help me choose?
I'm quite fond of continued education and consider myself a life-long student even though I'm not currently in school. I believe that every experience is a chance to learn something new... even if it's to learn I don't like it. At least now I know.
I'm not a health nut, but I try to live within some semblance of a healthy attitude... both mentally and physically. I'm skinny. I enjoy my skinny self and look for that kind of bodily comfort in other people. I think physical attractiveness is very important in relationships. I'm not obsessed with huge breasts (I actually like them smaller) and short hair (particularly, pixie cuts) makes me melt inside.
I'm secure in my own sexuality, kinky as it is, and look for a partner that is just as secure and can communicate that. I enjoy sexual photography and art... I'm a strong advocate for the sexual personification of women. (I don't think sexual imagery inherently objectifies women, only the viewer can do that.) I believe 'sexy' is a feeling, not a look and I enjoy bringing out that feeling in others.
I live by the mantra: Be excellent to each other (bonus points, if you know what movie that's from)
If you want to know anything else, just ask.
I work as a freelance graphic designer so I spend a lot of time securing new clients and working on a variety of projects.
I'm a strongly passionate and spiritual atheist/humanist/skeptic and stay pretty active in that community.
I work as a technology consultant for a global non-profit organization and volunteer at the local Science center whenever possible.
As far as TV goes: I grew up on Star Trek: The Next Generation and consider it a huge influence on my personality and values. I'm a full-on Browncoat & Joss Whedon fan. Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse are among some of my all time favorite tv series ever. Some of my friends laugh at me but Buffy contains some of the best written characters and most pure expressions of the human condition ever performed. A true testament to 'growing up'.
Things I'm watching lately include Doctor Who, The Big Bang Theory, Fringe, Castle, The Mentalist, Person of Interest, Sherlock and The Walking Dead.
Music wise; Im all over the spectrum. I have picky tastes but I enjoy bits from everything I hear. I write Ambient music so a large part of my collection revolves around Brian Eno, Harold Budd, John Foxx, Stars of the Lid and the like. I work with generative & mathematical systems a lot in my own music so I enjoy sound that isn't intended to be music quite a bit. I'm a huge fan of artistic, and inventive forms of music (think Brian Eno, The Future Sound of London, Plaid, David Sylvian, Dead Can Dance, etc.) but also enjoy fun & care-free approaches as well. I love good, intelligent pop music but not a lot of 'radio-pop' songs. Passion Pit, We Are Scientists, MGMT, Hot Chip, and They Might Be Giants come to mind. I'm a child of the 90's so there's a soft spot in my ear for artists like Smashing Pumpkins, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Nirvana and their contemporaries. I can enjoy some classic and modern Hip Hop, but don't really care for the narcissistic, self-inflationary lyrics of most popular rap music. I like classical music as well... Debussy is my favorite classical composer.
I'm a simple, southern food kind of guy. I'm not afraid to try new, cultural foods, but my palate is pretty consistent. When trying out a new restaurant for the first time, I generally order a hamburger... If they can't fix a $8 slab of ground beef, chances are, I won't be interested in their $20 steak. I love a good salad. Pizzas are made with pepperonis. Baked potatoes come plain with lots of butter. I eat my steaks (medium well) with A-1 steak sauce, not because the steak isn't juicy enough but because I like the taste of A-1 steak sauce. I'm generally not fond of Asian/oriental foods. I can't stand store-bought spaghetti sauce - If you're going to make spaghetti, make the sauce too. My interests in seafood is fairly limited... leave the exoskeletons and invertebrates in the water, please. If this sounds boring to you... I'm sorry... then again, if you're judging me by what kinds of foods I eat... please move on.
2. Technology... I love technology. Computers, smartphones, the internet... I enjoy some time away or being disconnected from time to time, but the amazing, informative and social opportunities of today's technology makes me happy to be a part of the 21st century. It drives my creativity in new, unrealized directions and fuels my imagination to unknown heights.
3. People & Nature... without them, I wouldn't have much inspiration to think, write, compose or draw. Be it a busy city street, a peaceful country path, a beautiful body, a tortured soul or a wandering mind... the world around me is where I obtain the paints for all my canvases.
4. Books/My Kindle... One of the simplest ways to expand my knowledge and understanding of the world, the universe and the people/places within. I can't imagine a world without them.
5. Caffeine... I'm a total night owl and I need something to fuel those long creative stints.
6. See 1 ~ 5.
