My self-summary
As a self-employed creative-person-supporter, my passion is helping fantastic people do what they love.

I currently run the Fan Supported Network and the Touring Music Collective, helping musicians, writers, and film-makers with the business side of their artistic careers. When no one is looking, I dance and play with fire and run on stilts. Most of the time, though, I am the man behind the curtain, helping fabulous people make magic.

Always aiming to think the best of others, I am slow to anger and quick to forgive. When comfortable with my surroundings, I am an outrageous flirt. I prefer the company of youthful, playful, intelligent, and worldly people who live their lives with good humor.

I'm currently looking for a smart, petite, and geeky lady with a mind of her own. You should be willing to ask for what you want and to be assertive when it suits you. I'm one of those seemingly rare guys that actually prefers a woman who can take the initiative and make the first move.
What I’m doing with my life
I manage a couple of bands and handle business logistics for other sorts of creative types. I also do some creative work of my own in the realm of video production (live streaming and multi-camera shoots for music videos and concert DVDs) and providing graphic design for clients' album covers, show posters, and media kits.

A lot of my recent energy has gone to the logistics of independent DVD distribution with a small Seattle-based film team; working the kinks out of our new order fulfillment service and doing project management and consulting for a lot of kickstarter campaigns. Perhaps you've heard of a few of my clients' projects:

JourneyQuest - a webseries
Gamers 3 - a feature film
Marian Call's European Adventure
Tricky Pixie: There and Back Again
Humans and Households / Natural One - a couple of short films
PWNED - a novel by Matt Vancil
I’m really good at
helping people motivate themselves. I've often thought that my calling in life is to be an "artist prodder." I love to cultivate creative people and inspire them to find their joy and find ways to share it with the world. My favorite form of success is helping an artist make a living at living her dreams.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have unusually long hair with shiny metallic highlights.

It may also be fair to say that people notice the company I keep.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to consume media of all sorts. It was my easiest form of escape, when on the road. In books, I prefer mentally engaging works - preferably involving puzzles and mysteries and complex storytelling styles. In music, I must _absolutely_ insist on singers with perfect pitch and decent voices. For live shows: circus arts, bright lights, flashing colors. TV... pretty much any TV will suck my brain right out. I think it's my ultimate weakness. I like watching it too much, so I try to watch it as little as possible.

"Good Omens" by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams
Recently, I've enjoyed the Miles Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster-Bujold and the new series by Mira Grant that starts with "Feed"

The Game, Lord of the Rings trilogy, Princess Bride, Grosse Pointe Blank, and Validation

I'll tried for a while to refrain from going into a commercial about the bands I represent, other than to say I work with musicians that play Lively Celtic Folk Rock for Naughty Punk Faeries... and a Pixie Pirate Queen of the Bards... and a trio of strong southern women skirting the edges of Alt-Rock, Americana, Jazz, Folk-Hop, and Mythpunk... and a brilliant duo of Modern Dreamers from Canada. I also do a bit of occasional support work for a loosely knit collective of touring musicians.

And then there's a wide range of stuff I listen to for fun: KMFDM, Tim Minchin, Tori Amos, The Indigo Girls, Dar Williams, The Beatles, Jonathan Coulton, Davinci's Notebook, Faun, Kan'nal... Tribal and industrial and comedy and geeky and melodic and classic. And then there's the dance music: swing, blues, latin... and I'll stop there for now.
Six things I could never do without
Music, laughter, dancing, creativity, companionship, and inspiration.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Inventions, friends, past mistakes, grand plans for the future, stories, and mental puzzles.
On a typical Friday night I am
probably reading a book or having dinner with a kickstarter client or shooting video for a concert at one of my favorite venues. I occasionally go dancing at the Merc, and I love participating in NSPP gatherings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I identify strongly with the Rabbit archetype: mischief-maker, shapeshifter, storyteller. I certainly don't think I am a rabbit, although I sometimes like to think of myself as one. I love having my ears stroked, and my favorite place in the world is curled up in the lap of a pretty lady.

I used to identify just as strongly with the Crow archetype while idolizing the Raven archetype, but I grew out of that. Feel free to ask me about how I was a Rabbit pretending to be a Crow that wanted to be a Raven.

I am naturally polyamorous, but not necessarily poly-sexual. That means I love freely and will happily fall in love with many people at once, but I am perfectly capable of exclusive relationships and I am content with sexual monogamy.

I experience compersion rather than jealousy, and I deeply enjoy seeing those I love happy and in love with other people.
You should message me if
You're interested in an adventure, or if you'd like to lure me into one.

If you're an artist, a musician, a Maker, a storyteller, or a geeky weird chick, then you should definitely message me.
The two of us
