My self-summary
Let me preface this by saying, I love self summaries and I am fantastic at them. I think they are the best.
So,
Art and expression are pretty important to me. I also think science is neat and that its super important too. Not like I'm a science junkie or anything, but I do work in biomedical education which sort of combines both and its a bit of a pet peeve when people dismiss it.
Some people think that is cool and even say that I'm fairly cool too. (I have references. I can put you in contact with my mom, and my nephew Rick, if you message me.)
I grew up on Chicago's south side and went to public school there(the kind of school with metal detectors).
I'm kind of an ex jock. Played Linebacker at Minnesota State. Or I should say attempted to play. Actually spent most of my time on crutches. If I couldn't play, at least I got some sympathy attention.
I lived in Philly and then Newark before Harlem, because I am trying to add as many bad ass places to live as i can to my resume.
That covers some of it. There's plenty more I think, but if I write too much, we won't have anything to talk about. Also, I totally prefer meeting and talking. I do much better in person and conversationally than I do in this unnatural, forced format.
(See? Whats everyone complaining about on here? I F'n smashed this.)
What I’m doing with my life
I am a 3D animator, illustrator, and comedy writer (comedian).
I have my masters in Biomedical Visualization, so during the day, I am a surgical videographer for Columbia University where I record surgeries and produce animation/ illustrations for a medical/surgical education website.
In the evenings I attempt comeding.
I’m really good at
Um... self summaries of course. See above.
I can draw pretty good.
Jokes? You can probably tell by how hilarious this profile is.(sarcasm in case you can't read it)
The first things people usually notice about me
I am not really sure what the first thing people notice about me is. I doubt that its my amazing smile, which seems to be a popular answer on here. Maybe my beard, which is like a smile decoration or enhancer.
It's that or my fabulous rack.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I tend to lean towards humor and I like biographies. I think its interesting to learn about successful peoples lives.
Is a list necessary? Would anyone read it?
I really don't read much fiction, because I love movies, and that's where I like to get most of my fiction. I like all kinds of movies and music. I try not to limit myself to particular genres or styles of either. There are a lot more bad movies and bad music than good. So I just try to appreciate the good stuff no matter what type. I am no expert in either. Art is hard so I try not to be a snob. I just know what I like. Examples: I liked Brave Heart and Ground Hog Day. I also like A Tribe Called Quest and Weezer.
I hated the Avatar movie, even though I wanted to love it so much. Same for the Starwars prequels. I'll never get over that.
I love Mexican food, and have not found a good Mexican restaurant I love in New York.
Other than that I love all kinds of food and love to discover new stuff.
The six things I could never do without
friends, a creative outlet, good food, my glasses, stupid iphone, my cpap
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Are all of you vegetarians who live in Brooklyn? Really? Its cool, I have a car and I eat anything, just saying, It's almost as abundant as us laid back dudes.
Sadly I sold my car, and I think about her all the time.
Where are we gonna eat?
Can we just do drinks first meeting and then figure it out?
How am I going to survive trying to live life as a creative. (I've made it this far.) How could I live life not being a creative?
On a typical Friday night I am
game for anything. I want to try something new.
If not, probably at a dive bar where the music isn't too loud. I prefer being able to hear others speak. Also, I want everyone to hear all the brilliant things I have to say.
Could be working on my personal animation projects.
Actually I'm often at a stand up comedy show, hanging out in the back, watching, and if I'm lucky, sometimes performing.
Then back to the bar.
Maybe taking a trip somewhere. I enjoy going to new places and experiencing new things. Actually, I know everyone on here loves travel and can't live without being outdoors. Yeah, me too. I think travel is a very nice, ordinary passion for you to have, and I'm into it, but its not my passion. I do totally want to go somewhere with you, just in all honesty, I don't do it nearly as much as I would like. I feel like I'm really occupied with my, admittedly, much less practical passions and I hardly get the chance. Being passionate about something is what's important though right? I hope.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own like 6 pairs of glasses. I might possibly coordinate them with some of my shoes.
I think my phone makes it appear I am always on this site. There's a chance I haven't figured out how to remedy this.
My beard gives me strength.
You should message me if
You would like to contact my mom or my nephew Rick.
You are fun and enjoy good conversation and laughter. (btw, do some people hate those things?) I would appreciate someone who is independent and has ambitions of her own. Someone who is encouraging of my creative endeavors and I would be supportive of her aspirations in return.
It doesn't bother you that I've made more than one reference to my beard.
If you have any questions you think I might be able to help you with, just ask. I am not new to this whole "online dating thing."
You just want to meet and get a drink.
but mostly just the fun part is important.
