REAL name: Jeff (some friends call me “Jeffy Weffy”)
“thestray”? A nickname I started using in highschool, it’s just a way of saying I like doing my own thing
From: Los Angeles, born and raised
Born: June 1st, 1984
School: Went to the Art Institute of California, studied animation
What I do: Strugglin artist, aspiring writer/creator of comics and cartoons. I also make music for fun.
Alone Single ;)
Orientation: Straight. Sorry fellas!

Pet Peeves: When people use words incorrectly, I literally explode. Overused slang words, “swag” is starting to irritate me. It also bothers me how negative, jaded and cynical my generation is in general. Lighten the hell up, WORLD!
Bad habits: touching my mouth a lot, lying when the truth is just going to take way too much time to explain, self-deprecation, avoiding eye contact, going to the library and learning random skills from books then never practicing them and eventually forgetting them (graphology, hypnosis, card tricks, etc).
Anything I left out that you’d like to know?
