My self-summary
Greetings, my name is Val. I am a Subaru driving, graphic designing, beard loving, poetry writing, outdoor & environmental enthusiast.

I have continuously edited, deleted, and re-activated my profile to the point where I will keep my profile short and sweet.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a web designer for American Eagle Outfitters, workin that 9-5 corporate grind (for now). Eventually I hope to move cross country when I save up enough money.
I’m really good at
• photography / design
• cooking
• organization
• making people laugh
• packing things into a single space (due to many years of camping and moving during undergrad)
The first things people usually notice about me
My height, or lack thereof.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
austin to boston documentary
dead poets society
lord of the rings/the hobbit
the girl with the dragon tattoo [swedish series]
big fish
marvel / DC movies (pretty much any of them at this point)

game of thrones
the last alaskans
alaska the last frontier
below zero
mountain men
mick dodge

bear's den

buffalo springfield
adelitas way
three days grace
five finger death punch
(I like a very wide range as long as it's not country or rap)

I take milk in my tea, my coffee black, the occasional matcha and most certainly a good beer. I hardly drink for various reasons along with the fact that I know next to nothing about alcohol aside from what kind of beer I like.
My favorite foods include roasted brussel sprouts with bacon, pasta bolognese, strawberries, salmon, any and all Mexican food, and just about anything with garlic in it.
Six things I could never do without
• camera
• sweaters / flannels
• art
• outdoors
• books
• the human consciousness
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I am constantly thinking about how much waste we produce as humans and how little people care. I watched an interview of a young girl who produced enough trash in a year to only fill a mason jar and has inspired me to be more conscious of my consumption. My ultimate goal is to be more self-sustaining and less wasteful for the benefit of the future of this planet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix, games or working on a design project that I thought about the entire week whilst plugging away at my 9-5
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a thing for bearded lumberjack types.
Also, I enjoy video games and don't ever plan to reproduce. I am often told I will change my mind. I feel so very strongly that I won't because my justifications are strong. I have seen what overpopulation has done to our beautiful planet, I don't ever think as an artist that I could handle the financial burdens of a family, and my drive to travel would certainly be hindered. Many may think, well that is selfish. But believe me, I think with the state of the world, lack of jobs and depletion of resources, I think I'm doing the planet a favor. Humans don't have natural predators and the Darwin theory has only been doing so much, what with the advancement of medicine and science these days.
You should message me if
If you're able to give more than a few word answers. Also, if you dig the outdoors as much as myself and wish to pick at my brain, by all means message me.

If you don't recycle or at least have some sort of empathy towards the environment, don't bother.
The two of us
