My self-summary
OODYL: Only Once Do You Live

I took myself off the dating and sex-having market for about a year, with the intention of reflecting on my relationships for a bit, starting my illustration career, blah blah. Mostly, this exercise in deprivation just reminded me that relationships and sex are an essential part of a full life that bolster your well-being. So much for being a prude!

I took the OKC online dating persona test and scored playboy, uggh sorry about that. Grain of salt and all of that because remember how I became monastic last year.

So yeah, even if my response rate says something like "evil avoider" because I hardly used my OKC over the last year, pay no mind to that as I will try to respond to the gushing torrent of messages that will inevitably follow the pronouncement of my availability in the NYC OKC community.

I'm saddened that my profile ranks me as more conservative than most of my matches. Rest assured, I think the world would be better without guns, Trump (wrote my bio well before he was elected, uggh kill me), and catcalling, but I think it might be an even better place if that wasn't the only thing that everyone talked about all the time. It's more fun to make up hypothetical scenarios and see where the other person's head is at. Like, would you allow me to play Bring Me to Life by Evanescence as our first dance song at the wedding?

Draw often,
Watch reality television with fervor,
give the benefit of the doubt,
Should take more showers but don't smell bad.
Don't want to play cards against humanity or apples to apples
What I’m doing with my life
trying to be a pro illustrator, dangerously close, maybe on the gallery route. who knows
I’m really good at
minor gymnastic feats, pretending to be excited online!, sleeping at odd times, walking silently
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall, skinny, my hair is crazy (if it's longer)
That my appearance lags behind my age, "hey mr. 5yr old!"
That I'm sitting on the same chair with my arm around them, eatin popcorn watchin spykids 3d
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Thus spoke Zarathustra
The meditations of Marcus Aurelius
Swann's Way
Franny and Zooey
The Blank Slate by Steven Pinker
Fun with a Pencil by Andrew Loomis


Art: Crumb, Ware, Mughal Painting, Beeple, Jules Julien, marina abromovic, digital appropriation artists, nick liefhebber

Shows: THE CHALLENGE (formerly real world road rules challenge), kroll show, an idiot abroad, nathan for you, millionaire matchmaker, frontline docus, trashy reality tv in general

Music: A lot of psych-rock, but also went through a philip glass phase, classical phase (mostly the big four minus bach), whatever on pitchfork for the last 10 years, and a LOT of melancholic stuff and embarassingly sublime stuff: basinski's disintegration loops, julianna barwick's early stuff, grouper, stars of the lid, etc.
Six things I could never do without
creative cloud
various strains of berittas
beeeeeeeer duh
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how ridiculous status is, what motivates people to make big choices, choice&fate, my next art proj, what it would be like to be a redneck
On a typical Friday night I am
Working so i'll say saturday. Trying to go on a date so I can lock down that bangin babe of my dreams one day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I just bought a scratch off... I feel dirty now.
You should message me if
You smarter than me by only a lil bit. You good lookiner than me by only a lil bit. You richer than me by only a lil bit. I like glasses too, but I can only ask for so much.
The two of us
