My self-summary
LA native. Insatiably curious autodidact. I like cheap cars, secondhand jeans, good surf, and expensive whiskey.
What I’m doing with my life
On my own time I'm an electronic musician, furniture builder, old motorcycle/car restoration hobbyist, beach bum, and infrequent but passionate consumer of nature.

For work, I'm an art department freelancer. I frequently wonder what the hell am I doing and how did I swindle people into paying me to do my hobbies.
I’m really good at
Teaching myself how to do things, delivering bad news in a gentle way, befriending people's animals, gracefully admitting when I'm wrong, and being persistently and genuinely happy.

Terrible at remembering where I parked my car, set down my keys, and going to bed early enough.
The first things people usually notice about me
My life is a neverending stream of acquaintances and introductions (freelance life) and the two examples that stick out from recently are someone nearly shouting with enthusiasm that I 'smell like candy' as well as someone else telling me they loved my hair. I might be princess bubblegum.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Oryx and Crake (Margaret Atwood), Hemingway, Anthony Bourdain, really terrible 70s paperback fantasy anthologies with a special emphasis on Piers Anthony.

Music: i'm just a regular guy who listens to music of my own creation entirely too much. and you might not guess it but i also have a very large soft spot for girly foreign language pop (i'm looking at you YELLE)

Shows: I'm chewing my way through all the iterations of Star Trek, but if it means junk food and blanket forts I'm totally into that show you love to binge on netflix too.
The six things I could never do without
six things that actually live in the backpack that goes everywhere with me: change of clothes just in case, passport, netbook, swingtop water bottle, grid paper notebook, and a comically large set of headphones. I don't know that all this stuff is necessary, but it's what goes everywhere with me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is there anything better than french fry pizza?
On a typical Friday night I am
Gallavanting around downtown drinking with my friends and then getting taco truck tacos.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I pet wandering mystery cats with no regard for toxoplasmosis.

I'm the only person on okcupid who's never been to Machu Picchu.
You should message me if
You're fun, intelligent, and you'll be nice to my cat.

Bonus points for adventurous eaters, animal lovers, rooftop drinking, arts and crafts, film photography, long conversations, comfortable silences, and intellectual curiosity.
