Who I am:
Hi! my name is Cay, I own my own freelance design and content creation studio.. I also run my own Geek/Nerd Culture Convention in Lincoln, NE. So its safe to say I'm more than a bit of a nerd, but I love what I do for a living.
I'm a Nerd, i'm into gaming, making art, studying and researching things, web design, sci fi, comics, making music, I read alot, and I enjoy solving problems among other things. I travel to a lot of conventions, and events all across the US to promote my event and to gather new clients and work for the studio.
First and foremost I am a passionate person, with a fun, relaxed side, as well as core or values and ideas that keeps me grounded and stable. I love being creative, I love expressing myself. I have a strong passion for motivating and encouraging others in whatever areas they need that in, as well as to believe in themselves and to have confidence in who they are and their abilities.
So I'd ideally like to meet someone who is creative, open, has passion for something, be it a hobby or a career or an idea. I hold a high value on passion
Or at least be on a strong path to discovering what you are passionate about. Which can always be really rad, and a very fun and interesting experience to help someone on.
However if you don't fit that it doesn't mean I automatically count you out. I'm very open to new and different things.
I'm very proud of who I am and what makes me who I am. I've learned that its better to be open with who you are and what makes you happy. However I've also learned that not everyone has to like the same things you do. Sometimes a significant other or just a friend...is everything you want because they are everything you are not.
I'm very open minded and very accepting. Looks are only skin deep. I know there's a lot of anxiety about that on this site. However no worries here. I'm more concerned about the quality of your character, and your heart.
If you are interested in getting to know me, or just want to chat randomly send me a message.
What I'm doing with my life
Aside from the studio and the convention I do smaller event planning for a portion of my company that focuses on helping teens and young adults who are socially awkward and have never fit in or felt like they were apart of something, Along with that pushing to lower suicide rates and rates of self afflicted injury in those who consider themselves "nerds" or socially awkward. We do that by hosting a slue of different events to help them make connections, new friendships and form positive bonds with people. it does capture a good deal of my time but i have a lot of fun doing it and helping people, but i make time for it just like I would a relationship and anything else in my life.
I also do Graphic Design, Webdesign, and Videography/Photography for a local SEO/Webservice Startup and I write columns for several websites.
Some of my favorites

Anime wise: One Piece(I'm a HUGE fan), Naruto, Bleach, anything with Giant Robots, A general theme of pushing to become stronger, and generally a good story I'm all in either combined or separate.
Books Gary Vee's "Crush it", "Thank you Economy". Also I really like the book "Tribes" by Seth Godin. I really like "Tough shit" by Kevin Smith as well. Also I really dig TEDtalks and stuff like that.
I love all types of music but my favorite type of music is 90s music heh. I love it, love it, love it. Also I'm a big fan of Big band, swing and Jazz. I don't mind showtunes or music theater either. Being I did theater and choir in highschool.
Also I'm a sucker for most pop punk from the early 2000's. Fallout Boy, The Used, A day to remember, Taking back sunday, New found Glory, Senses fail, My Chemical Romance.
foods...sushi is number one on the list, then i'm a big fan of steak and potatoes, also I love carp. I'm also a fan of Vietnamese food, as well as a good bowl of traditional ramen(none of that in the package trash). My favorite drink is Toddy with Hazelnut(cold brewed coffee) tied with Chai tea.
What I'm usually doing on the weekends
I'm usually 1 of 4 places.
1.My favorite coffee shop hanging out working on things, relaxing.
2.My second fav. coffee shop which just so happens to also be a comic book store doing the same thing.
3.Out of town at a convention either helping run it or hanging out having a blast promoting my projects/business.
4.At home chillin' playing games, or reading, probably simultaneously working on a project.
However recently every Friday I've been hosting a weekly Nerd hangout at the coffee shop/comic book store. Which has been going really well. So that will probably be my typical for a good while.
You should drop me a line if....
If you think my profile is rad, semi-rad, or partially rad. Or if you you have a thing for the weird, outside of the box, passionate, creative types.
Also if you don't mind nerds, and this quote makes you smile....
"Demons run, when a good man goes to war."
