Filmmaker; Graphic Designer; Photographer; Visual Artist
Who am I? Well, I’m a son, brother, grandson, friend, uncle, role model (to at least one person), neighbor, passerby, co-worker, trainer of exotic dogs (jk, but I love my dogs), photographer, dude. I like photos, taking photos, cinema, camping, backpacking, music, art, rock climbing, snowboarding, motorcycling, old cars, new cars, cigars, good beer, people, food, women, other photographers, creative people, regular people, irregular people, people people, stuff.
When I’m nervous I play with the hair on my face till it bugs the crap out of me and I cut it really short. When I’m happy I smile; when I laugh I snort. Sometimes I pick my nose–in your car. I like watching movies, eating popcorn, sunshine in the early morning, skateboarding, riding the single speed my friend Matt gave me, planting stuff, learning. When I feel overwhelmed I add more to my plate; when I feel underwhelmed I’m bored.
I stay up late, get up early, and sometimes sleep in. I LOVE orange juice. I don’t turn the little tab on my beverage cans to the side unless there is another one that looks just like mine in the near vicinity, and then I still don’t do it. I like knitted hats, wool socks, and blue jeans. I have a favorite tie. I laugh when I eat ice cream in the middle of the night. I love down comforters and feather pillows, but, I have a space pillow thing…(huh).
I grew up in the country but I love the city. I talk to homeless people–I feel bad for them; I give them food, money, and smiles. I have a space between my two front teeth, got braces to fix it, got rid of braces, still have the space…I’m not perfect; I don’t know anybody who is. I love my work and every moment that goes into it. I love being healthy; I hate cancer. I have a lemon tree, a shrub, some bamboo, a dead tree, and fresh herbs.
I have secrets–stuff I won’t even tell you. I had an ant farm when I was little and thought ninjas lived in the woods behind my house. I’m not afraid of clowns but I think they’re strange. One time my parents planted a garden and I thought I would help by pulling out all of the weeds…turns out I pulled out all of the plants–there weren’t any weeds. I was nerdy when I was a little kid, I still am–I’m fine with that. Besides, all of my friends are nerds (Yeah, you are. Nerd.) I don’t like bad attitudes but sometimes have one. People who are grumpy make me sad; people who don’t talk to me make me sad. I like hugs, high-fives with my friend Jason, burritos, and spicy food.
There’s more stuff about me, but now you know more about me than you ever thought you would…so here I am, take me or leave me.
