My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A Sydney-sider by birth and breeding, I moved back a few years ago after a decade in the US (mainly Cambridge MA). Happy to be back in the sunshine, for the most part.

My life focus is composition. The music I write tends to be on the experimental, challenging side, but I'm open to pretty much any genre.

I spend a lot of time analyzing stuff, which I often articulate out loud (for better or worse). Boredom is pretty foreign to me; I tend to find everything intriguing in some way. Which explains my popularity with children, dogs and the elderly.

I'd say I'm generally considered a decent person and a good friend. In fact, one of my old jobs required me to be actively supportive and courteous at all times, so niceness is a guaranteed default at this stage.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have some kind of career as an educator type, so I suppose that’s doing something with my life. My ambitions center more around creative pursuits though, particularly composing for chamber ensembles, orchestras and opera companies, and writing prose, poetry, anything really. Beyond that, hoping to become the best chardonnay socialist I can be.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Eating; sleeping; procrastinating; staring at the wall; thinking methodically and systemically, often while staring at the wall; being right all the time; keeping people amused; and music stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My third eye.

Also, how loud my voice is, especially when saying something inappropriate.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Eateries, especially Asian ones, fancy ones, and fancy Asian ones; music, even the bad stuff; drama/comedy in either a televisual, cinematic, theatrical or literary form; outdoorsy, semi-rural seclusion (but not all the time); family and friends; a moral framework
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Composition (of the musical variety), the state of the world, other people’s problems, the obvious (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Grateful there’s no such thing as a typical Friday night. Working, fun in with or without friends, fun out with or without friends: it’s all fair game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really enjoy my privacy.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Your eyes don’t glaze over reading this profile, and you're not too old (tend to get on better with younger people).

A thorough disinterest in game-playing and manipulation is also a plus.
