My self-summary
I just moved to San Francisco from Seattle in May for a new job. So far so good! I love this city. It reminds me of Seattle in many ways but with a lot more to do, more sun and lots less rain.

I'm an artist and designer for a living. Currently I'm working on art stuffs for social media games. Over the years I've also done graphic design, painted backgrounds, character design, storyboards, presentation and event design. Pretty much I'll draw, paint, Photoshop whatever someone wants to pay me for.

What else? I like geeky stuff but wouldn't consider myself a nerd. I'm a sports fan, mainly football, baseball and golf, but I've never let it get in the way of the rest of my life. It usually takes me awhile to warm up to people, something I'm getting much better at. I'm in love with mid-century modern. From decor and design to cars and clothes. In fact, they should have just stopped in 1968. Aesthetically it really hasn't gotten any better since. I'm a very loyal friend. I actually enjoy going to Ikea. I'm a fairly good planner but find being spontaneous is usually much more fun. It usually takes very little to twist my arm.
What I’m doing with my life
Just moved to San Francisco for work. It was a big change since I'm a Washington native who's lived in the Seattle area my whole life. Add to that I was going from a 3 bedroom house to a 1 bedroom SF apartment. I'm not really feeling the culture shock I thought I would. It's very similar in a lot of ways. I'm getting settled into the new job, new apartment, whole new life!

Other then that I'm trying the best to take care of myself. Stay as grounded as possible. Be thankful for the things I have, rather then being upset about the things I don't. I'm learning to let go and forgive. Finding happiness in the moment. Being accepting and open to opportunities that present themselves. All this while I await the next chapter!
I’m really good at
In no particular order...
Coming up with a witty quip, most of the time sooner rather then later. Being a good listener. Cutting it close. Drawing. Knowing where my keys, phone and wallet are. Packing a car for a camping or road trip. Trivia, especially the TV/Movies/Pop Culture stuffs. Putting down the toilet seat. Quoting a line from Seinfeld for every situation. Remembering birthdays. Reading a map. Separating the laundry. Having one more if you'll have one too. Staying awake longer then you. Picking out quality produce. Liking your Facebook status.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually a plaid shirt, blue Chucks and a shine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Incredibles, The Lord of the Rings, Raiders of the Lost Ark, When Harry Met Sally, The Dark Knight, Before Sunrise, Best in Show, anything by Steven Spielberg. I'm woefully behind on current movies though. Know of any good ones?

Currently set on the DVR - Mad Men, The Simpsons, 30 Rock, The Office, Glee, Gossip Girl, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Smallville, Community, Modern Family, Grey's Anatomy and a dose of reality TV. You'll have to guess which ones. RIP LOST, Veronica Mars and Arrested Development. I also love Jeopardy! I've watched this show nearly every day I'm home at 7:30 since the age of 12.

I don't read nearly enough books. When I do it's usually the mass market kind you'd find in an airport that literary snobs look down upon i.e. Dan Brown or Michael Crichton. I just started The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

I have a very wide range of music tastes. Some current music I'm digging right now include Muse, Lady GaGa, Royksopp, MGMT, Fischerspooner, Vampire Weekend, The Killers, Kylie Minogue just to name a few. Lately I can't get enough Drum & Bass since going to Burning Man. It's a regular internet radio play now. I've also been updating the iPod via the library with music that I once had on CD, tape or vinyl like Michael Jackson, Madonna, Cyndy Lauper, The B-52s and Johnny Cash. I also like to check out the Time Life style collections of music from the 70s and 80s. My old standbys will always be film scores by John Williams and music from the 40s - 60s by people like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgearld etc. as well as The Beatles. Who doesn't love The Beatles though?
Six things I could never do without
My Beagle - I'd be lost without him
iPhone - What did I do before? I'm sure I don't want to find out.
Sense of Adventure - Life would be dull without.
A cold pint - Refreshing!
DVR - Frees up time to do important things, like surf the internet.
Adobe Photoshop - I'd be very hungry and poor if I didn't have it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Again, in no particular order... How long this dog is going to keep staring at me. What I should do next. Which bin to put this trash in, there are too many choices now! Do I really want another cup of coffee. Are we ever going to see an Arrested Development movie. Stay in or go out for dinner. How people managed before mobile technology. Door number 1, 2 or 3. What's with all the yoga pose pictures on here. Why these new shoes are so hard to put on.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually out and about on a Friday with friends searching for the best happy hour deal. Sometimes, getting together for a game night. Occasionally I'll stay in on a Friday and catch up on laundry or DVR'd shows I missed because I was out all the other nights of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In 5th grade I won a Michael Jackson dance contest. I danced to "Billy Jean" in front of the entire school complete with glove and red zipper jacket.
You should message me if
There's no "if"! You know you want to by now!
The two of us
