I'm a laid-back, fun-loving guy with penchants for design, travel, flirting, and living way too much in the moment. For work, I do digital product design (websites, mobile apps, etc.) and I do some speaking and writing on industry topics. My daytime is spent splitting time between graphic/interaction design, writing, and coding.
I'm from the Midwest but have been in Seattle for about seven years. I love it here and have no desire to live anywhere else in the States. Maybe I would live overseas someday, but I'm pretty damn happy in Seattle, so I don't think I'm going anywhere soon.
It's hard to identify specific artists, because they change so frequently, but if I must, here are some timeless enough (for me, anyway) that I know I'll still be listening to them 15 years from now: Atmosphere, Macklemore, Blue Scholars, Grieves, Common Market, Mos Def, John Legend, Tech N9ne, Bob Marley, Miles Davis, Lee Morgan, Roy Hargrove, Karrin Allyson, Damian Marley, Ludacris, Eminem, Dixie Chicks, The Fugees, The Lumineers, Truckstop Honeymoon, Digital Underground, Dr. Dre, N.W.A.
I tend to read non-fiction, especially books about design, architecture, photography, and other topics I'm interested in. I read a lot of news, magazines, and such online. I don't read much fiction.
Currently, I'm way more into TV than movies. I love Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Dexter, Californication (I've been compared to Hank Moody way too many times), The Killing, Walking Dead, How I Met Your Mother, The League, etc. Past shows I've enjoyed include LOST, Sex and the City, Entourage, Six Feet Under, Big Love, Arrested Development, etc.
Food? Well, I'm not especially particular about food, but my favorite cuisines tend to be Thai, Japanese/Sushi, Vietnamese, Mexican, Hawaiian, Cajun, and Italian. I'm equally as comfortable in a swanky restaurant or eating pub food at the sports bar. My least favorite cuisine is probably down-home, American country-cookin'. I grew up on steak and potatoes and I'm kinda over it.
I'm a big sports fan. I'm obsessed with NFL and college basketball (Go Chiefs and Jayhawks!). I enjoy MLB, college football, and NBA, as well, although I don't follow them as closely as NFL and college basketball.
2. Flirtatious companionship: Always looking for new flirt buddies!
3. Freedom: You don't know what you've got until it's gone.
4. Family and friends: Love 'em.
5. My iPhone: Gotta be connected at all times.
6. Sex: Just keepin' it real, people. :)
And/or, if you want to sing some karaoke.
I've proven capable of being attracted to pretty much all types. No race, hair color, body type, style, or age (18+) is a dealbreaker. That doesn't mean I find every woman attractive, it just means I don't really have a particular type that I prefer over others.
Really, I love getting to know almost anyone new, so I'd love to hear from you.
