My self-summary
I am obsessed with movies, music, art.

I am a contradiction.

My passionate, emotional side is often at odds with my cold, stoic side.

I am shy and quiet sometimes. Others, loud and boisterous.

I'm an analog guy living in a digital world. I don't know much about computers. I don't even own a computer. I don't have a cell phone or an iPod. I've never gone on Twitter. Yet, I love Youtube, have email, do the facebook, and love to websurf.

I am politically liberal. I believe in the death penalty.

I am obsessed with movies, music, art. Yet I rarely go to theaters, concerts or galleries (lately, anyway.) I love comic books, but rarely buy them. I don't play video games, but I do watch shows about and/or read about them.

I hate when people are late. I am frequently late myself.

I hate exercising. But I do it anyway.

I am a pessimistic optimist, or an optimistic pessimist.

I am artistic, intelligent, and quirky
What I’m doing with my life
I am a freelance illustrator (designs, logos, cartooning, technical/patent drawings, etc...) creating and expanding my own business. I work mostly in an old-fashioned way... I'm not opposed to technology, but seek to unite the two approaches so that the traditional approach won't become totally extinct.
I’m really good at
listening to people. I like hearing other peoples' thoughts and opinions. I like hearing about their lives. Having real communication--real conversations.
I'm an artist, so I can draw things. How well?!? Better than some, not as good as others. I'm always striving for improvement. I think visually, so it also comes in handy for filming/photography.
I also have an uncanny knack for remembering random stuff. Movies, pop culture, politics, sports. Things just get stuck in my brain sometimes.
The first things people usually notice about me
It used to be that I wore all black. But, I don't wear all black that much anymore, so I don't know. Depending on the weather, my hair will often do interesting things... it has a mind of it's own.
Lately, I seem to always get mistaken for being either a biker or a musician or a stoner. None of these really apply to me. It's gotta be the hair...

Six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
current events and the state of the world, although lately, I find it rather infuriating and depressing trying to follow politics in these "modern" times. There actually seems to be some pretty simple solutions to some complex problems in our world, if only people would stop yelling at each other and try listening. Keep an open mind.

I think about art constantly. Sadly, I think about it more than I actually create it sometimes (but most art starts as an idea, right?)

I also think about movies alot. It's a bit of an obsession.
On a typical Friday night I am
up for anything. I like to go out, providing there is something fun or interesting happening. I don't need to go out just to go out because it's "friday night." I am perfectly content staying in sometimes. It depends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can sometimes get really nervous talking to women. My brain just sort of shuts off and I can't think straight. It's apparently hilarious to my friends.

Oh, and technically, I'm left-handed, but actually, I'm ambi-dexterous.
You should message me if
you are very intelligent and have a quirky sense of humor. Sarcasm is a plus! Gotta admit, I'm a sucker for girls who wear glasses. Oh, and creativity of any kind is pretty sexy.
The two of us
