My self-summary
I'm a Painter so yeah, you gotta deal with that. I work four to six months every year on movie sets and I'm sometimes stuck out on location which, lets be honest, isn't great for long term relationships but that doesn't mean I'm not interested in trying with the right person. I'm a set chef mostly and sometimes scenic painter if you were curious and the rest of the year I just, ya know, paint things. I self-identify as an artist and I can talk to you about the philosophy and cultural impact of art and literature ad nauseum but, in relationships, I'm actually looking for someone who is creative thinking and art appreciative rather than a fellow artist... I'd rather go to a museum with you or talk about our views than work together in some dank cloistered studio. I read a lot and try to tackle big books but I don't consider myself a book worm or a snob. I have music going in my life as close to non stop as I can get without being obnoxious, and I don't watch much tv. I love good food, can and regularly will cook for friends and loved ones and more than often go out of my way for friends and people I really care about. I'm a smoker. Yep, it looks pretty cool but at its heart it's a gross addiction, I'll be the first to admit that. I do try to be respectful about it. I'm not a pothead but I do smoke semi-regularly. I'd hesitate to connect to someone who hasn't atleast tried it a few times( but I wouldn't be quick to shut you out if you had a bad smoking experience or if it just wasn't for you) I mean, it's just an experience after all, not some end all be all way to live.

I'm rather quiet at first, especially because I find that whole early small talk part of a relationship really awkward, but I'm really interested in how other people live their lives and what they're into. I don't live a quiet life though, I like going out, dancing, throwing parties, traveling or just generally going a little wild.
Morals are relative, I'll break a law sometimes, hell, I may break the law for you- but I loath causing harm to people direct or indirectly, I hate to fight and I'm well aware every action has an equal and opposite reaction..

I'll lay it on the line here, I'm really passionate about what I make, maybe more than the relationships I keep. Sometimes an artist is just the shambles that follow the work and that can suck.
If you can get beyond that I'm a faithful type and earnest in love and life, never too serious. I'm a bit of a goofy kid.

It's honestly harder to write one of these than I thought.

I'm missing a tooth. You can see it every once in a while when I get to smiling real big. It's probably the only thing I'm terribly self conscious about. Never fear shallow gals, It's not my front tooth.
