My self-summary
oh hello,

art school dropout. Crafts-person. DIY Obsessive. Hand Tool Woodworker. stuff like furniture, tool and instrument (luthery) making are my jam.

Sometimes I think about going back to school, but my interests are too varied and I have no clue what to pick, I'm always learning new skills and hobbies.

I like the weird stuff.

Interesting Facts about Me!

My grandma was a correctional officer/guard and I went to an inmate operated daycare.

I'm a neglectful house plant care taker, and in the past have made my own hydroponic systems to make things easier. They lasted longer till I neglected to refill the water. Kitchen herbs and cherry tomatoes!

Didnt learn to ride a bike till i was about 22.

Other stuff!
What I’m doing with my life
working for a sign company. not always sure why. And then my life is consumed by handtool woodworking when I'm home.

I have an elderly rabbit I adopted from a friend, I don't think she likes me, unless I have apples.

Falling asleep with incense and krautrock.

Being a Human Wikipedia; full of facts, but a significant portion of them are wrong or uncited :s
I’m really good at
Eating Rice.

Making things during my coffee and lunch breaks.

Small motor skill things. Painting. Drawing. Sculpting. Carving. Building. Crafting. Playing music. I have a good memory for methodical tasks. Industrial stuff. Creative stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
grumpy cat face

Possibly the smell of linseed oil...

It seems contradictory to my stoic exterior, but I have been told several times that I am easy to talk to. My guess would be that people notice because they are surprised.
