I have a tendency to wax poetic when writing, and am having to fight very hard to not do so here. (My last self summary was terribly guilty of this) I enjoy painting, writing (though I wish I was better at it), drawing, sculpting, and making mushy mixed tapes. I write sad songs on the guitar and long, bizarre psycho-acoustic tracks from recordings of various environmental sounds. I do 3d modeling of whatever strikes my fancy and would really like to do an animation one day. That being said,. I wouldn't consider myself an artist. I never sell anything and give almost everything away. I consider myself and my life a work of art or an act of magick and everything I do is just another stroke of the brush, another wave of the wand.
I work as a systems administrator and I love the work I do. That being said I try to stay off the computer as much as possible in my free time unless I'm working on an "art" project.
I have an 11 year old daughter who I don't get to see very often but love very much. She's pretty awesome.
I am a spiritual sort of guy and it plays a rather large role in my life. I am a Thelemite who is a member of the O.T.O, an ordained deacon and novitiate priest of the Ecclessia Gnostica Catholica.
I'd like to meet someone who is awesome, magickal, and sweet. Someone who loves to think and create. Someone who occasionally likes to walk that line between the real and the imaginary without getting too lost on either side.
Being a catalyst for change.
I also volunteer doing hospice work.
I'm really good with technology. I am a linux systems administrator after all. I'm also good at caring about people, creating stuff, marathoning an entire television series, writing music, fixing mechanical things, being conscientious, considerate, and taking into account how my actions affect other people.
If I were to guess, probably my face, since that's the first thing they see.... usually.

Shows: I typically watch mostly documentaries, and No Reservations, but I occasionally watch a good series now again. But I don't watch much TV as a general rule.
Although I just started watching Girls and have fallen in love with it.
I do watch a lot of stuff on Netflix.
Food: I eat mostly fish and seafood. I did this for awhile and felt amazing then I fell off the wagon but have started back again and its awesome. I'm not pretentious about it though, I will still go out to eat to non-seafood places and get stuff. I really like Greek, Mediterranean, Indian, Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, Authentic Chinese, American Chinese and Denny's....
