Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I will have been in Salt Lake for 5 years in Feb. I've been on and
off of here for almost that whole time. Not particularly proud of
that, but it is what it is and whatever, it's been fun. As I near
30 I start wondering if I should get more serious about
I have a great job in the symphony; essentially exactly what I
aspired to in school. But I miss the East Coast sometimes (DC
native). My hours are often light but odd (I work almost every Fri
and Sat night, so lets hang out on Tuesday afternoon?).
My political views are liberal. My sense of humor is dry, but I
like to think I'm hilarious if you get that kind of humor. I enjoy
the occasional hike and/or ski day (warning, I'm not a good skier),
but have come to realize that I'm nowhere near outdoorsey compared
to most people in this area of the country.

Music: classical music, especially symphonic and string quartet.
Beethoven quartets and Mahler symphonies. Right now exploring
symphonies by Sibelius. Minimalism, particularly Arvo Part and
Steve Reich. Going through a Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson phase
right now. I like accessible prog like that, but also some of the
less accessible. I was obsessed with Scandinavian metal bands in
high school. I can't say I've necessarily gotten that out of my
system yet, but I usually pretend that I have to avoid weirding
people out. Yes, King Crimson, Hendrix, Floyd, Zeppelin, 90s rock

Books about music (Indivisible by Four, and I've been meaning to
read The Rest is Noise, by Alex Ross) and other nonfiction mostly,
dabbling into crime/mystery now and then. Moneyball the book was
way better than the movie.
