Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Wow, it's been a while, hasn't it? Into the fray, I guess. Hi, I'm
Alex. Here's what I'm all about.
I'm back in my hometown of St. Louis, MO.
After graduating from a four-year university with a degree in
communications, I'm a full-time advertising content writer. In my
spare hours, I make desultory video productions on my Youtube
channel and listen to rock/metal/electronic. Good times.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Advertising content writing and video production. I also write
about music and games online. I'm an avid videographer and I know a
thing or two about writing, podcasting and all that fancy 21st
century digital age stuff. My home base is currently in St. Louis,
Missouri, specifically my apartment in the St. Charles
Being a music/gaming nerd, going to concerts, making videos, all
that good stuff. Fascinating culture, it is. If you're curious
about the YT channel, let me know.
And before you start making assumptions, no, I don't waste my
entire life indoors playing video games. This seems to be some sort
of stereotype that gets tossed around much more than people want to
admit. I like games and I write/produce content about them
professionally, but I get out of the house and exercise just as
much as any other person. I wanted to get that out of the way,
since...well...trust me, labels are already starting to be printed.

open to other genres. 90's music is a weakness of mine. I love that
era. I also love prog stuff (getting into Porcupine Tree
a lot lately and
loving them). I'm a self-proclaimed audiophile.
On occasion, I'll dive into other stuff. Definitely digging music

are always a struggle for someone interested in writing. It's tough
staying on top of everything going on in my life, but I
occasionally have a "Matrix" moment and wonder if the world we live
in is real or not.

I'm not going to give a twenty-line checklist of what I "expect" in
a person, because that's not how this stuff works. Bonds don't come
from bulleted lists; they come from conversation. Use those social
skills and something might happen. You never know.
However, if you think that "social skills" means giving me a
message that simply reads "hi" or "what's up", there's a probable
chance that nothing will come of that. I appreciate you making the
first move, but give me something to work with, please.
