My self-summary
Hey!

I’m new to the area, having relocated from Seattle to take an incredible job opportunity in Baton Rouge. Prior to this, I lived in the Pacific NW for my entire life. So far I only know a handful of people that I don’t work with.

I am tremendously fortunate to have this cool job in the music industry. Audio and music are my life’s focus. I have spent most of my adult life playing in bands, but of late have shifted to more of a producer role, creating electronic compositions and short film scores, for a couple reasons. First, my work schedule makes late nights difficult, and I've also got a nagging tinnitus problem from all those years spent in rock bands. I’m currently interested in getting some of my music placed in games.

I value humor, intellect, confidence, and kindness.

My pet peeves include inefficiency, wobbly tables, and people who don't control their dogs.
What I’m doing with my life
Outside of music? Someone once called me a nerd who discovered exercise. I believe that the mind/body/spirit are not so cleanly divisible, and that a healthy body begets a healthy mind. I have been involved in martial arts, yoga, Crossfit, and various other fitness efforts off and on my entire adult life. Sadly, this roller coaster is currently on an uphill, but I'll get back into the swing of things.

Nerd stuff: I build my own computers, and I buy a lot of electronic music gear that bleeps and buzzes. I grow carnivorous plants, and have lately re-discovered the Rubick’s Cube. I also run a YouTube channel/blog focusing on audio gear. Of late I am getting interested in DIY electronics projects using the Arduino platform, but I have some learning to do first. Fact is I can generally find something to be fascinated about in nearly any endeavor.

I understand that Louisiana is becoming a hot spot for film and TV production, and I am interested in getting involved. I need to temper this leaning with a bit of caution, as I tend to take on too many extracurricular activities at a time, leading to less-than-exemplary results for the many projects I am trying to be involved in at once.

The clean slate that has come with my recent relocation will be very good for me in this regard, and I am learning to prioritize more unscheduled relax-time.
I’m really good at
Playing electric bass, making people laugh, finding the good side of “bad” things, being a complete and total goofball, and listening. I'm a professional writer with a side of graphic design skills. I’m also a pretty good cook, though my repertoire could stand to be broadened a little.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm kinda short. Then they notice that I'm nice, can make them laugh, and am generally good-natured.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am poorly read and consider it my greatest flaw. That said, my favorite author is likely H.P. Lovecraft. While I write for part of my living, I struggle with maintaining the focus required of long-form reading.

I can be a polite snob. I have a TV, but don’t watch TV shows, really. I like brainy movies and nature documentaries, particularly Carl Sagan’s “Cosmos.” On the other hand, sometimes I just wanna watch live Manowar footage on YouTube. For fiction I’m into the Cohen Bros, Stanley Kubrick, Terry Gilliam, David Fincher, George A. Romero, Wes Anderson…

Indian=king of food. I am one of those people that actually CAN eat the same thing every day and not get bored, if I like it that much. I imagine living in Lousiana will make eating healthy way harder than it used to be—but good goodamn, CRAWDAD MAC & CHEESE, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

Music: I go through phases, but electronic music seems to be my mainstay, which is a little strange considering I played in a country band for five years. I’m also a huge rock fan, generally leaning more toward the punkier end of the gamut, and carry a torch for the sonically strange; genre notwithstanding.

Favorites include The Cramps, Murder City Devils, Howlin' Wolf, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Johnny Cash, Misfits, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Rancid, Klaus Schultze, Calexico, Leonard Cohen, The Mermen, Federation X, Jerry Lee Lewis, Duane Eddy, Link Wray, Impala, Jason Webley, Neko Case, Black Eyes & Neckties, USS Horsewhip, Air, Alan Lomax Field Recordings, Danzig, Jandek, Reigning Sound, EARTH, Bruce Haack, Big Business, Portishead, and the work of Joe Meek.

On a typical Friday night I am
Not sure yet. I'm new around here, and haven't figured out what to do where, yet. While I can be a homebody, I recognize that getting out of the house is good for me. That said, I don’t do late nights as well as I used to, and can not afford to damage my hearing any further, so rock shows and concerts are kind of rare for me. Finding to-dos for Friday nights is becoming increasingly difficult—halp!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have equinophobia.

Also, legitimate testing suggests that I am both INTJ and ADHD.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 27–38
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You’re a creative type looking for someone to bounce ideas off of. I love helping people out with their art. Musicians, illustrators, photographers, digital artists, videographers, writers, web developers, etc.

You consider yourself someone with moxy.

You value balance, and recognize that “moderation in all things” includes moderation itself.

You find yourself appreciating things in a manner that people around you often don’t understand.

In regards to online dating: if you prefer to meet sooner than later. I’ve spent weeks exchanging messages with people only to finally meet in person and find that the chemistry simply isn’t there. Chemistry is a must.:)
