My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a musicologist and music professor, teaching being the biggest passion in my life. (What's a musicologist, you say? Sounds like a question to be answered over a drink). I've recently finished my PhD, and I teach at a couple Universities among other random unspeakable things musicians have to do to not starve to death.

I consider myself a pretty laid back guy like probably everyone else on here, and I like to spend social time enjoying good food and especially good beer, whiskey, and wine. (Emphasis on good; I'm definitely a quality over quantity drinker) I've taken a big interest in photography in the past year or so, though it's more of an escape for me, so it stays fun. I also like to stay active, and enjoy getting exercise, be it tennis, racquetball, baseball, biking, or simply walking, which I do quite a bit. Since this is Pittsburgh, I feel compelled to mention watching sports- sure, I watch sports, and I've become a Pens fan since moving here, but I'm not from Pittsburgh, so I don't have Steelers fever, and if there's something to be done outside, I'd probably rather be doing that than watching TV. I'm pretty open to trying new things though, and I take away as much as I can from every significant person in my life- at the same time, I like to share what I love with people as well.

So, who am I looking for? You, probably! I've yet to find any magic criteria of mutual interests that's crucial to me. One true key to my heart though is through intelligent conversation: discussing a good book, a piece of music, or just thoughtful observations are things I treasure in a relationship. Oh, and liking good beer is a big plus too- double plus for liking good whiskey. I can't say it's a deal breaker, but I'd have to overcome my natural distrust of people who don't drink beer...

Also, you don't need to be a classical music expert (I'd probably feel threatened anyway), but be prepared to try to appreciate it! I do, however, like people who sing- even if you think you can't. So sing, and drink beer. It's a pretty easy combination when done in the right order!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching, mostly. I'm an adjunct professor for two universities here in Pittsburgh, and one in Virginia.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening (it's what a musicologist does, after all!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love to read, and do so as often as possible. It's hard to say if I have any favorite books, though Thomas Hardy is probably my favorite author. Discussing books is great conversation, so I'm always reading from recommendations by friends. I think we're in a kind of golden age for television series, between HBO, AMC, etc. Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Justified are my current dates with the TV. As for films, I love The Third Man (I mean, all-zither score, who wouldn't love it?), old film musicals, old westerns, old film noir, Hot Fuzz, Amadeus, Gettysburg.

As for music, I love classical, jazz, bluegrass, folk, and 90s rock (the good ol' days). I'm fairly out of touch with what's happening now in the pop scene, but my 8-year-old piano students keep me informed.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Singing in the car
A camera
Classical music
Seasonal beers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The relationship of perceived "high" art and popular culture, the effect of pre-Freudian psychological theories on German music in the mid-nineteenth century, and how to justify research trips to Europe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having low-key drinks with friends, wacky adventures with friends, seeing a concert or recital or movie, or staying in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
All in good time, all in good time.
