My self-summary
I'm creative for a living, outdoorsy, sarcastic, and sort of a nerd. I love the city but part of me is constantly fighting the urge to say "fuck it" and move to a cabin where I can have a fire every day.

I am a morning person. Sorry I'm not sorry.

Nominative determinism seems legit to me.

I recently found out I am INTJ... it is accurate.

(Let's get one thing straight, sometimes I look like a strange lizard or some sort of woodland creature that should be collecting food for winter. I wanted to get that out in the open rather than show overly flattering pictures that confuse you if we were ever to meet.)
What I’m doing with my life
I work for myself drawing pictures for magazines and books. It rocks. I also build stuff when I get the chance.

Otherwise I'm trying not to get too worked up about things and just enjoy it. I don't need extravagant things to keep me happy, cards, hanging around outside, or a good beverage is usually enough.
I’m really good at
Drawing, measuring things, cutting things, fixing things (not cars), people watching, zoning out, being allergic to cats, not knowing what color something is, listening to My Favorite Murder...
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably big eyes and skinny... eh, it is what it is
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: What About Bob, Sideways, Band of Brothers, Lost in Translation, Wes Anderson movies, The King's Speach, Let the Right One In, Stranger than Fiction, stupid action stuff, and of course the Princess Bride

Music: Lumineers, Black Angels, The National, Phoenix, Wolf Parade, Of Monsters and Men, Santigold, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Youth Lagoon, Iron and Wine, Zeppelin...

Books: I buy a lot of history books then buy some sort of fiction to balance it out. My favorite is probably the Hornblower books by C.S. Forester. 1491 (history nerd). Bill Bryson.

Food: I'm not picky I'll try anything and probably enjoy it but I'm realizing it isn't a passion for me like it is for many.
Six things I could never do without
Books, Coffee, Trees, Drawing, Water, Whiskey
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ideas for new projects.
Why things are the way they are.
History
Wanting a barn
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably with some friends at a bar, or working. Things are always due on Monday but they say "have a good weekend." Yeah, thanks.
You should message me if
You're not too cool to play on the swings and you'd like to get a drink.
