My self-summary
I've been told that my hugs are legendary, and I'm here to say, they are. I love my life, I have a wonderful family, amazing friends, and a freelance career which excites and challenges me every day. I'm extraordinarily easy going, most things just roll right off my shoulder.

My work keeps me tucked away indoors mostly, so in my free time I like to get into some adventures. I do a lot of sketching in random locations, hiking, mountain biking, riding my motorcycle to the great unknowns, camping, etc. I'm a movies guy, I can rewatch movies countless times like listening to a great album.

I'm looking for someone who is driven and passionate in their life. Creative, curious, fascinated, adventurous, aspiring to be a better person that she is today. There is nothing more attractive than a woman following her ambitions and dreams. So if you're just lazily roaming the planet happy standing in the same spot for the rest of your life, we're not right for each other.
What I’m doing with my life
I freelance in commercial vfx, creating art and animations for tv. I'm starting to develop some concepts for an iphone game. My work allows me to travel almost anywhere, so I do that too. I play music, draw, paint, bake (better at baking cookies than cooking real food), and try to learn something new as often as I can spare the time. I just started to learn the accordion, ... now where can I find a pair of lederhosen...
I’m really good at
Listening, artful conversation, wordplay, getting friends together, being there when I'm needed, blowing hookah rings, going OCD about some new discovery or insight. Finally, word combos... I cant explain it, but I can combine any words at all, instantly! It'll sound completely natural, try me!
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile... I'm usually smiling, life is good.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm into relaxed music, classic jazz standards, ambient, trip hop, spanish guitar, etc. Specifics; Radiohead, Portishead, Royksopp, Sigur Ros, Django Reinhardt, Cinematic Orchestra, Bjork, Bonobo, Buena Vista Social Club, Cheiro De Choro, Coldplay, Devendra Banhart, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Bill Evans, Ted Greene, Goldfrapp, Gotan Project, Hybrid, Helios, Incubus, Koop, Morcheeba, Pink Floyd, Tosca Tango Orchestra, Angels of Venice, John Williams, Debussy, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Beirut, Ratatat, Waldeck... very 'etc' on this list. There are just way to many to name off.

My goto when I can't find something is The Office. I don't really watch tv, but I love movies. I usually put on movies like most people put on music. Hook, Count of Monte Cristo, Jurassic Park, Nightmare Before Christmas, Anchorman, Addams Family 1&2, 500 Days of Summer, Spirited Away, Howls Moving Castle, All Miyazaki Films, Star Trek (new one), Indiana Jones, James Bond, Royal Tenenbaums, Best in Show, The Incredibles, All Pixar movies cmon, 28 Days Later, Groundhog Day, Snatch, The Iron Giant, The Beach, The Fifth Element, Maverick, 25th Hour, Funny Farm, Adaptation, Three Amigos, Signs, Vanilla Sky, The Neverending Story, Gladiator, Oceans 11&13, Sandlot, Waking Life... the list goes on so long...

I rarely find the time to just sit and read something, but I do listen to lots of audiobooks, which frees me up to use my hands for something productive. However, if I am reading I like to saturate my imagination with a good otherworldly tales! I just finished the first 3 books in the Enders Game series, Ready Player One, and I'm reading American Gods (which is incredible). I dig Terry Goodkind, R.A. Salvatore, C.S. Lewis, C.S. Friedman, Sword of Truth, Dark Elf trilogy, Harry Potters, When Darkness Falls, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Ishmael, 1984, Animal Farm, Catcher in the Rye, etc. If I'm not with my friends, you will see me with my headphones on, listening to a book to stimulate my imagination with ideas to draw. I'll often just take a ride somewhere quiet in nature just to get fully immersed in whatever world I'm listening to at that moment, and pour out all the things that fill my head.
Six things I could never do without
Friends and Family
iPhone filled with audio books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How many people use private browsing...? The people I love and care about. Improving myself for tomorrow and enjoying where I am today. Oh, and the eventual meeting of the girl of my dreams.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hard to say, whatever comes up. If nothing comes up (which is rarer and rarer these days), enjoying a little time to breathe, and planning a hike for saturday morning.

I honestly enjoy going out with friends as much as staying in with movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've recently watched all of Star Trek... and it was awesome!
You should message me if
I’m looking for a best friend who shares common interests, with the potential to lead to something more. Intelligence, creativity, a great smile and a great sense of humor are a must. Someone I can do things and share my life with. Be it movies, travel, adventure, quiet nights, or just hanging out chatting. I’m after someone who can keep up with me both physically and mentally. If this sounds like you, then drop me a line and stop wishing you could find a great guy because I'm right here.
The two of us
