But with that out of the way, as it's the single most prominent part of my life currently, here's a bit about who I am and what I do. I'm a writer, more specifically, a science-fiction writer. I'm also a budding illustrator working primarily in pencil and ink, but recently moving on to more colorful avenues with watercolor. I'm an avid reader of Sci-fi books, comics and graphic novels but I'm also a fan of horror, magical realism, and all manner of detective fiction.
I've got a pair of turntables in my living room for when I need those loud comforting beats by my side. I mix a little when I get the inspiration and I love to hear great music with some serious beats!!
I volunteer from time-to-time at a Buddhist center in town and I try to learn a little bit more each event.
Movies: YES PLEASE!
Shows: Crime dramas are my absolute favorite. The Wire is my most favorite show of all time! Also, I love silly sitcoms like Community, 30 Rock and It's Always Sunny. Of course, I'm also into SciFi TV as well, modern BSG, Star Trek: Next Generation.
Music: I love dirty and grimy beats paired with warm textures/harmonies. Genres include but not limited to, jazz, blues, reggae, dub, funk, hiphop, rap, avant garde beat driven music, soul, orchestral soundtracks. Artists include, J Dilla, Madlib, MF Doom, Apollo Brown, Flying Lotus, Digital Mystikz, Kaiju.
Food: Thai, Japanese and other Asian cuisines, as well as Mexican & Italian but I'm always willing to try a something new.
The three refuges of Buddhism, not in a dogmatic sense, but in an experiential sense, I've felt the enduring peace in the teachers, the teachings and the practitioners of Buddhism.
Beats, got to love the low end bass tones, and them crispy drums and percussion.
Tea, I drink my weight in Arizona green tea on a weekly basis.
Science-fiction and the continued efforts of Scientists to understand the universe that surrounds us.
(I know that's seven but honestly, I rely on a lot more than this tiny list, and that last one is a doosey)
This history of humans on this planet, and the works of Marx as they relate to the eventual downfall of unbridled capitalism.
Also, I like some trap music because of that 808!
As a disclaimer, I practice ethical non-monogamy. So I have partners currently but that doesn't restrict me from meeting new people. I'm really open to making a new connection with interesting, even not-so-interesting, folks. I'm into the variety of life and meeting new people helps me experience this first hand.
