My self-summary
I am a Santa Cruz native and I am still in love with living here. All the same I like getting outa town too.

I'm a museum, roadside attraction, national park and all around 'tiny adventure' lover and I try to find my way all over for a fix of something new and inspiring. When I'm not working or exploring I'm finding a cozy if not pretty place to read a book, or at a coffee shop or bar where I can grab a beverage and write.

There is also nothing wrong with sitting around doing nothing all day.
What I’m doing with my life
Work
Photography
Writing
Expanding my mind I guess.

I pay the bills with video production. I've been working in TV since I was 14 and never stopped. It's fun work, and while I'm always exploring other avenues for financial success or whatever, I really like what I do.
I’m really good at
Mentoring and procrastinating.
Being useful with my hands.
Listening to audio books.
Eating breakfast food.
The first things people usually notice about me
My silver fox patch. I like it when they awkwardly build up to asking "um, so is that real or..."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like trying new things more than I can say I'm passionate about a particular genre or something. I am passionate about learning and creativity.

I can say that I especially like things if they make me nostalgic though. I can still experience my favorite childhood moments over and over again. Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Goonies, Blade Runner, Ghostbusters, Are You Afraid of the Dark, X-files, Fraggle Rock, The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings (although i didnt read LOTR until later...) You see where I'm going?

I like things that make me laugh until I realize I'm laughing at myself laughing. Or laughing at you laughing.

I like reading anything that keeps my attention. I listen to books now more than I actually sit down and read. I find I can take in a lot more content a lot faster that way. But I love relaxing next to my partner, quietly reading an actual book. Seprately or in some cases, together...I like doing the voices.

Right now I'm reading a lot of Pema Chodron. Her 'voice' relaxes me and she is very insightful. I read a lot of none fiction in general...makes me sound smarter even if I'm the first to admit I have no idea what I'm talking about.

I will drop everything if Doctor Who is on...can you believe they are taking it off Netflix!

The things I'll wait in line for typically involve spaceships and ray guns and nostalgia. Or Beer and Bacon Festivals. I'm a big Simon Pegg fan too. With that you can add Spaced to my TV show list.

I like being disconnected too. I love road trips! And hikes and camping and starlight and holy crap!!...WHERE AM I GOING NEXT?! I enjoy these things on my own, but the memory always holds up better when I'm with someone. You should think about running away with me basically ;)

Music: Most...the radio? I listen to a lot and love a lot, however I'm not sure I've purchased music since I was 8 and got a Weird Al cassette at Wearhouse.
The six things I could never do without
-My Sister and Brother in Law
-All the animals!
-My sketchbook/notepad.
-My camera

... I dunno, 2 more... Bacon and Eggs?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Finding a balance between how much I can invest in others and need to invest in myself. I'm a healer and I cant help it sometimes. Sometimes people don't want to be healed, sometimes they need to do the work themselves. I struggle with a desire to fix things: everything, a broken toy or camera as much a broken person.

I spend a lot of time trying to focus a little more on myself in my own head. Rather than obsess about everyone or everything else in my life.

Although, try imagining listening to a dozen radio stations at the same time and isolate one long enough to figure out what's being said... I think I lot, I tangent a lot, i get lost a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Grabbing a drink and watching a show somewhere, if I'm not working. Maybe my friend will be doing standup and I'll be at the pub. Maybe my other friend will be singing at an open mic. Maybe I'll be cat sitting and hanging out with Serling the most amazing cat in the world. Maybe I'll be having a good time with someone new.

That's me being hopeful. Most likely, netflix and beer though.
You should message me if
If you do I'll probably like you by default.

I'm looking for friends to flirt around with. People to do cool stuff with. I've had a lot of success with that on this site.

I've had success witht things getting more serious, but never for very long. Things last longer when they're casual with me. But who knows.

I'm dating and I'm sexually active.
I'm good at dating too but let's just hang out some.
