-musician and teacher.
-thoroughly progressive, freethinking fish-out-of-water in the great but socially schizophrenic state of Texas.
-avid traveler. Last trip was to Orlando (ahem) Hogwarts and Diagon Alley.
-bit of a car guy. This has been a thing since I was old enough to know what a car was and I don't see it changing any time soon. Definitely a guilty pleasure!
-very family oriented person. I visit with my immediate family at least once a week.
When it comes to dating, having a strong and unwavering friendship is something that I value more than just about anything else. Honesty is the highest form of intimacy.
Lost in Translation, Forrest Gump, Good Will Hunting, The Shawshank Redemption, or anything by the Cohen Bros, Spielberg, Tarantino, or Aronofsky.
Cosmos, Breaking Bad, The Newsroom, Colbert Report, Trailer Park Boys, Mythbusters, Top Gear. Just watched the Netflix series Narcos and loved it! Besides that, I'm TERRIBLE at keeping up with tv shows.
Shostakovich's 5th Symphony played by Chicago is absolutely incredible and trumps anything else I could list here, but Sigur Ros and Death Cab are both near and dear to me. My musical tastes run the gamut of things not including bro country or screamy angsty teenager music. Hiatus Kaiyote has been rocking my world pretty hard lately.
Mahi-mahi, grilled and lightly seasoned, drizzled with freshly squeezed lemon and served over a bed of wild rice. Add a bottle of two-year-old Sauvignon blanc. Seriously though, I'll eat just about anything. No mayonnaise though! Nope nope nope CAN'T handle it.
positive vibes from friends and family
a sense of accomplishment
deep down, you always wanted someone to dedicate and perform a tender and heartfelt jazz ballad a la John Coltrane circa 1963 to you, because that's something I can handle.
Of course, meeting up and solving all the world's problems together over a few drinks is always acceptable!
