My self-summary
I'm a dad and my daughter pretty much always comes first for me. After that, I'm an artist who likes to paint in oils, sculpt in sculpy, and am curious about most any other sort of artistic endeavor. I was part of a swing dance troupe for a year and have learned how to passably handle most of the ballroom and latin dances... well, not so much the latin stuff, but I can boogie alright. Well, to be more accurate, I can embarrass myself on the dance floor in a good way... I hope.

I love trees. They're glorious stargazers and perfectly amenable to anthropomorphizing regardless of whether or not they pay any attention to you when you try it. I once took a nap in a tree. It was one of the most restful things I've ever done and I'm terribly happy that I didn't fall out while I dozed there, up in the branches, swaying to the wind.

I'm a bleeding heart liberal with a scientific bent and even though the world can be terribly dark, I can't help but be foolishly optimistic because there's so much beauty in the world and in the hearts of most people, that I just know that somehow, things will get better. Either that, or we'll just struggle along and figure things out the best we can and hopefully survive the disasters we create; real things like climate change and world wide economic collapses, the Gap logo change, or the fun fictional disasters such as zombie invasions, lovecraftian horrors and the sad passing of wonderful fads into mainstream memes.

I'm looking, well, I'm not really looking, I'm just open to somehow bumping into that perfect mix of human that complements my own strange mix of habits, inspirations, world views and dreams. I would like this to be a reciprocal sort of complementariansm where we both support each other in our works and in our random attempts at self expression. I would very much like to find someone who is fun and adventurous and just a bit crazier and extroverted than myself.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm raising a daughter, working for the man, paying off the cards
and saving for a better day.
I'm running (barefoot style) and rowing (indoor) and trying to
build a better body out of whimsical determination and a randomly
healthy vegetarian diet.
I'm painting and sketching, writing and dreaming and attempting to
get some projects done in the little bit of spare time I
I'm wondering how repetitive I can get...
I’m really good at
Irreverent respect and non-sequiturs are things I do well. Mediation and random blather, walking and making interesting things in the kitchen. (note: interesting can sometimes be good! sometimes)
I'm halfway decent at the painting and drawing thing, but I could be better.
I'm quite good at telling my daughter nonsense stories on long drives.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
While I am a vegetarian, I love all sorts of food, even the stuff I don't eat. Pho and Thai are particularly delicious but making stuff at home can be equally gastronomically rewarding.

I love the Jasper Fforde books and anything by China Mieville is sure to please. Chung Quo was an amazing epic series of books. I love Don Quixote and think Les Miserable was incredibly manipulative but still very enjoyable, much the same way Avatar was. I'll read or watch just about anything.
British TV is almost always a favorite and Netflix and Hulu are lovely lovely timekillers that I really must use less but I don't think I will.

As for music, I love the odd and the frenetic, the soothing and the moody. From Circus Contraption, Dresden Dolls, Rasputina, Faun Fables and Cat Power to Apocolyptica, Ye Ye, Psychobilly, Old school Hillbilly, Classic Metal, Musical Theatre, Cambodian Rock, and Zoe Keating.
Six things I could never do without
Well, not counting the obvious things one needs to survive in the typical meat body, I'd guess something to draw with, a world to venture about in, social connections, music, books to read and someone to love would be my six picks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever art/story projects I'm currently involved in.
On a typical Friday night I am
Increasingly considering venturing out into that great big world and mingling with people at a greater frequency than normal.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have more than the ordinary number of ...
You should message me if
...you're fabulous and interesting, adventurous and intelligent.
