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.)
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 can draw pretty good.
Jokes? You can probably tell by how hilarious this profile is.(sarcasm in case you can't read it)
It's that or my fabulous rack.
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.
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?
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.
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 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.
