My self-summary
Aspiring: Traveler / Professor of Art
Currently: Grad student and Painter

Hello, my name's Christian, and I am currently finishing my masters of fine arts in painting, while teaching oil painting through a community outreach program. Although I've been flirting with enrolling for another MA program in critical studies (art philosophy). After ten years of studying I'm taking time to make artwork, and really root myself in the community. Coninsiding with my duties as an educator I also work part time for a large hardware corporation, with my ambitions leading to selling more of my work through my practice.

Although I may be invested in my education and career, I do it out of passion, and would make time for that special someone who can stop me in my tracks. I'm a sucker for someone who can make me smile, has a cute laugh, can have long conversations about nothing, and has bright eyes and smile.

I enjoy hiking and going to beach during the summer, reading fiction (fantasy fiction) or true crime, cooking, and alt and indie music. I also have a thing for movies for starts.

So do you want a partner who loves to go off the beaten path, but at the same time wouldn't mind hanging out while doing the "boring stuff" (IE: returning pop bottles, long drives to a friend's house). Then you should message me. I look forward to hearing from you.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently working part time, establishing my artistic practice, all awhile intending to move to grand rapids to attend graduate school and attain my terminal degree in art. Only 3 semester to go and I am DONE WITH SCHOOL!.. unless I decide to go back to school for a degree in social marketing.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sing in the shower but I am hard to catch in the act.
You should message me if
If you're a bold, intelligent, healthy, compassionate woman, who has excellent communication skills, and a firm understanding of who you are as a person.

Dealbreaker: Smokers, unmotivated individuals Above all, please do not contact me if you're not over your ex or only looking for a rebound. Doing so will save you and me a lot of time and angst.
