My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey all, I'm Alex. I'm originally from Syracuse, but moved around most of my life. I came to Boston to study audio production, ended up landing a few gigs after graduation, so I stuck around.

Music has been my passion since I can remember, and I consider myself fortunate that I get to be involved with it on a professional level. I've been playing guitar since I was 8, and have managed to keep myself involved with a wide array of different styles and genres throughout my life. My general rule is if it makes noise, I dig it.

I'm an easy going guy, down to earth, and I'm a genuinely interested conversationalist. Also, disclaimer: I'm half greek, so I've been known to be loud, and I talk with my hands.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a Music Producer, Audio Engineer, and Freelance all around sound guy for a professionally renowned studio in Cambridge. For the most part, artists hire me to help them realize their potential when going through the recording process. This has been my dream job ever since I built my first project studio when I was 16, so sometimes I have to pinch myself to remind myself that this is real.

On any given day I could be producing a variety of genres whether it be folk, metal, jazz hip hop (the list goes on), or I could be recording audio books, or I could be engineering simple voiceovers for corporate gigs. I love every second of what I do, and I am completely submersed in career development. 2014 has been an exciting, challenging and successful year for me, I cannot wait to see what 2015 holds.

In addition to the music stuff, I manage the day to day at the studio. Accounts, administration, scheduling, business decisions, stuff like that. After graduating, I spent some time working in an accounts department at a music production company while simultaneously interning at a few studios, so that's how I landed that gig. It can be stressful at times, but I dig the responsibility.

Also, I guest lecture at a few colleges in Boston. I love teaching, I hope to have more consistent opportunities to lecture in the future, but for now the amount of teaching opportunities I have are perfect.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Outside of the music stuff, I worked in restaurants as a sauté chef throughout school, so I consider myself an excellent cook. My latest opus? White chocolate risotto. Go ahead, ask.

I'm an organized individual, and have been referred to as pragmatic on several occasions. I've also been told that I am a clear an patient teacher.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Eyes? I'm usually smiling?

Or that I'm in a hurry. There aren't enough hours in the day.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books! I went through a pretty wild Stephen King phase while growing up. My favorites? The Eyes In The Dragon, and Thinner. Also love Noam Chomsky, Mixerman, and Hemingway. Currently revisiting Dante, Inferno to be precise.

Movies! Bill Murray is a national treasure. I love the dark stuff, whether it be dark comedies, visually striking dramas, or independents. All time favorites? Anything and everything Wes Anderson. Also, in no particular order, Ghostbusters, Memento, Stay, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Beerfest, Life of Brian. Most recent? Birdman. I know what you're thinking. Michael Keaton? Really? Do yourself a solid and see it.

Shows! No cable over here, but I frequent Breaking Bad, House of Cards, True Detective, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Arrested Development, and South Park. I think Randy Marsh could be one of the greatest all around characters ever created.

Music! Shit. I really don't want to over do it here, so I'm just going to bullet point a few of my favorites, but I can't stress this enough, this list should be endless. Dillinger Escape Plan is my favorite band, and I follow everything that goes along with the "math" genre. It's really out there, complicated, staccato stuff, and it's not for everyone, but I'm really into how challenging it is.

In no order: Radiohead, Beck, Modest Mouse, Herbie Hancock, Led Zeppelin, The Shins, Jeff Buckley, Arcade Fire, Grizzly Bear, Built To Spill, The Flaming Lips, Odd Future, TDE, J.Cole, Game, Killer Mike.

Also, ISIS (the since retired post metal group from boston). I currently work in the studio where they recorded their most renowned record, and I can hear it in all of the work that I do. It still gives me goosebumps.

Food! Anything that doesn't have mayo in it. Also, no avocados. To me, they taste as I imagine a crayon tastes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Outside of those closest to me: Music, Pro Tools, Bill Murray, iPhone (email addict, and I live and die by everything google), coffee, my guitar.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Records, why they sound the way they do, and the process in which they were implemented. Also, tax write offs (again, I'm an accounts guy).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work a lot on Fridays, but when I'm not, I like drinks, shows dinner, movies, and sometimes just staying in. Typical answer? Maybe, but you can't knock what's fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If it's in my way, I will trip on it. It's a disease.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should just do it. Really though, I'm easy to talk to, and I'm just looking to meet someone who is passionate about what they do and likes to have a good time.

If you consider yourself a creative individual, we're already there.

If you have the slightest interest in instrumental math rock (Don Caballero, Battles, Tera Melos, Giraffes? Giraffes!, The Redneck Manifesto, ect.), I will buy you dinner and drinks at your choice of establishment, no questions asked.
