To elaborate: I have a serious job in finance (no, I'm not an apologist for all the damage caused by certain people in this industry) and for the most part, consider myself an adult. However, I feel that my sense of humor and creativity are also a huge part of my life, and that keeps me connected to who I was when I was younger, and who I will always be.
My job is mostly nine-to-five, leaving me time to pursue interests outside of work. I keep busy. I play bass in three bands, one of which is actively playing shows around Brooklyn and Manhattan. That band is indie rock; I also do back-up vocals. While bass playing is my primary musical trade, I sometimes play acoustic and electric guitars. I'm also writing music for other projects.
I am a modest traveler and hope to travel more in hthe future. Unfortunately I do not get to go abroad very often, but I have been to Israel, Japan, Spain, Holland, France, Mexico, the Carribean, and Swampscott, MA. Hopefully, I can plan trips to Chicago and Thailand before the year ends -- that depends on my work situation.
I'm more than a casual nerd with some things, but I wouldn't call myself hardcore. I enjoy a video game here and there and get excited if any of my friends hosts a board game night. My social activities have a healthy amount of variety -- not just nerdy pursuits. If you think I'm not interested in something that you enjoy, try me. I'd love to give it a shot (as long as it doesn't involve violent crime, nationalism, clowns, or Larry The Cable Guy).
