My self-summary
Bitterness flavors
The sweet life holds less appeal
Gives diabetes

This and other forms of wry wit are the sum my existence. Basically, life sucks, but you can get over it and be happy provided you are willing to learn from your mistakes.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in non-profit financial services to sustain my life. The job is fulfilling enough. I service people managing their bank accounts without the inconvenience on my conscience of working for a soulless corporate machine. But that's just what I do to make money. My real passions are in art, games and storytelling. I write and draw my own comics and am currently involved in organizing a cooperative roleplaying game where folks will pretend they are magical samurai trying to impress the Emperor. My current comic project is Fossil Bunnies, a tale about a university student who makes a quixotic attempt to disprove the theory of evolution.
I’m really good at
Being the guy who remembers everything he learned in school. I've come to the conclusion that I can do anything I put my mind to under the caveat that such still requires time management. And there's only so much time to put my mind toward so many things. Such is enlightenment.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a rather commanding voice, even when I try to speak in a normal tone. Also, people at work now say I look like Jon Snow. I see the resemblance, but being Latino automatically makes me 30% more dashing than Kit Harrington.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Little Miss Sunshine. There is no better film for working me out of a funk. Unforgiven and Inception vie for second. Seven Samurai and Dark City round out my top 5.

Muzak: The Killers, Muse, Protomen, Demons & Wizards, Dragon Force, Radiohead, Bob Dylan and Blind Guardian.

As for food, you may see me enjoying sushi as a matter of high tastes or Taco Bell when I just don't give a damn.

And how can I forget books? Fight Club by Chuck Palahnuik and almost anything by Nietzsche, Warren Ellis or Christopher Hitchens. Also, The Watchmen by Alan Moore, Berserk by Kentaro Miura, Full Metal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa, The Giver by Lois Lowry and Stephen King's Dark Tower... Hile, Gunslinger!
The six things I could never do without
My Muse (aside from the band)
A good grasp on reality
My sketchbook
Laughing in the face of absurdity
Philosophy
A sense of dignity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Catholic Panda High School, Corpus, Frankentrash, Bastard w/a Sword and Azielle: Substitute Angel. All of these are titles of ideas for comics that haven't quite gelled in my head and put to pencil yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Attempting to chill with some booze and hopefully scrape together a game of Cards Against Humanity, which if you're unfamiliar, is kind of like Apples to Apples... if the Devil made it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My best friend is a Satanist, the atheistic kind who believe the Devil is a very clever metaphor for the value of rebellion and self-preservation. We're close enough that he entrusts me as the godfather of his son even if we disagree on his Libertarian politics. If you're going very far with me, he has to at least not hate you.
You should message me if
...you believe wealth is something other than a number on a bank statement.

...you know that fun is something more than a diversion for children or what adults do when they want to pretend they don't have responsibilities.

...you think I'm worth the textwall of asshole jargon messages you likely had to climb over to find me.
