My self-summary
soooo, i'm an artist through and through. friendly but sometimes a little shy at first. humble, kind, thoughtful, introspective, sentimental... and have a quirky sense of humour ;) i'm a daydreamer with one foot on the ground. creative... a liberal and lateral thinker. i'm an optimist, i try my hardest to keep the glass half full. mmmm, i'm pretty relaxed and will try anything at least once, often twice :)
What I’m doing with my life
i make stuff - mostly sculpture/installation, but have been known to paint and take a few pix. i am co-director at a little art gallery and studio space downtown ...

sometimes i work in film/tv as a sculptor making sets or props. for the next couple months i will be renovating my new house! on my own :) okay, okay... it's taken over a year now, but the ground floor and basement are finished! :/ recently I've taken up learning violin.
I’m really good at
imagining, then making/building things...
challenging myself...
baking...
riding my bike...
whistling!
The first things people usually notice about me
probably that I'm follicly challenged ;) some people mention my glasses, or the little scratch on them :/ new glasses yay! pic to follow soon ...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
picking favourites is pretty impossible, but here's some of what i like...

books - lolita, grapes of wrath, geek love, and jitterbug perfume. catch 22 is great... the sacred and profane love machine, half blood blues. currently reading east of eden.

like most people i love the music i love although it's all over the place - i usually lean towards alternative/indie type stuff with sprinkles of guilty pleasures from every genre - recent faves - elliphant, mo front porch step, 4ucky, kendal johansson, trust, great northern, eisley, yeasayer, cloud cult, bear in heaven, now it's overhead (their song "skeleton on display" is beautiful), phantogram, little dragon, alpha, we fell to earth, perfume genius, little green cars, savages, polica ... just discovered this gem - death vessel "mercury dime" ... and yes it's true, i really do have a big soft spot for lights - go figure! o_0

movies - pretty much anything both hi and lo.

food - like to eat it! simple and mostly veggie at home, but essentially omnivore - i'm not picky at all, and if i'm at a restaurant that has something i haven't had before on the menu i'll probably try it - cheval anyone?!!

art - love making it but also enjoy viewing/thinking about/collecting it. check out olifur eliasson if you don't know his work, i think he's very good...
The six things I could never do without
obviously there are way more than six things i can't do without ... ie friends and family and air etc., but these spring to mind ...

glasses
art
steel toe boots
5 senses and everything to activate'em
music
bike
I spend a lot of time thinking about
girls/love/my heart, space in and around my new house, how to be authentic, how to change my stars. art/my next project... and a lot of little daily things...
On a typical Friday night I am
possibly at my studio making something/trying to figure some project out, or home watching a movie, or out with friends, or seeing a live show somewhere... every couple weeks we have a reception at my gallery that i attend for an hour or five ...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
um, my hi-fives need a little work...
i have a lot of tea in my cupboard...
I'm terrible at trivia...
