My self-summary
hey there, my name is mike. i live in seattle (capital hill). i spent the last nine years working at a local hospital with kids and teens. i recently finished a degree in art therapy and have since switched paths a bit. i now work as a therapist and am developing programs for adults with autism spectrum diagnoses. on my days off, i try to write, paint, take pictures, hike, and run. i also love to bake (as in cakes and tarts) and cook.

i'm looking to meet guys who are confident, who offer a different perspective, and who are open minded. artists (of any kind) are always great, as are people who work with kids (or those who like kids), people who love being outdoors, people who read, and those who don't take themselves too seriously. tattoos and accents are a plus.

i do not enjoy people who [non-ironically] use "lol" as a punctuation mark (like a period).

i am creative, perseverative, and tangential
What I’m doing with my life
i try to engage in as many creative projects as i can. as an art therapist, i try to help others find (or rediscover) their creativity too...
I’m really good at
people say i am a good listener (this probably comes from my work). i like to think that i also have artistic talent (painting, photography, baking). i'm a very loyal friend. i'm a horrible liar.
The first things people usually notice about me
a lot of people say the notice my eyes (the color and the asymmetry). also my hair and hair styling.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
i tend to day dream a lot. for me it's not one vacant thought but a conglomerate of different thoughts, visions, ideas and ideals. if i had to narrow it down i'd probably say my friends, my family, the clients i work with, art, and future travel plans.
On a typical Friday night I am
