My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey! How's it going?

I'm a native of Pasadena, although during the school year I'm a graduate student at the Cleveland Institute of Music. I play the pipe organ, and I'm in my last year working on my master of music degree in organ performance. Eventually, I want to get a doctorate and work as a church music director or (ideally) the professor of organ at a small college. I'm not religious; I just find the music very moving and powerful. You know that stereotype about the guy wistfully saying "Aahhhhh, Bach!!!" while lifting his arm to the heavens? That's basically me. :^P

My bachelor's degree is actually in physics rather than music. I got my bachelor's degree in Cleveland too, at Case Western Reserve University. I'm glad that I studied physics as an undergrad--it's nice to have floating around in your head, and on occasion it comes in handy.

Let's see. When I'm not frantically practicing, what do I do.... I guess you could say my first love in life was railroads and steam locomotives. I volunteer at a railroad museum maintaining and operating a steam locomotive from 1922, and I'm a federally qualified locomotive engineer. My grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great-grandfather all worked for the Santa Fe Railway, so maybe it's genetic....

I also really like going on random adventures, although not in the way most people use the phrase. Sometimes I'll drive around the city, the mountains, or the desert with no real destination in mind, just seeing what I discover along the way. In the city I've found probably 20 awesome ice cream shops that way, and in the mountains I've seen some immensely beautiful vistas and sunsets. Sometimes it turns out to be a bit of a misadventure--my friend and I spent New Year's Eve one year stuck in snow on Mt. Gleason, which is north of LA. I don't plan on ever doing that again, but it was definitely worth it once--the sunrise the next morning was amazing!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Not taking pictures with a cell phone in a mirror.

Also, going to grad school to get my master's degree in organ performance.

Also, working towards the day when I have a doctorate, and people I don't like will have to call me 'Doctor'!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being there for my friends
Driving a manual transmission car
Fixing stuff
Knowing where to get good ice cream at 2:38 AM
Laser tag
Knowing my way around without a map or GPS
Historically-informed performance of 18th century German counterpoint. Ya know. Just in case you ever need that....
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't say I've ever really asked anybody about this. I'm somewhat tall, so perhaps that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: My favorite composers are Mendelssohn, Haydn, Schubert, and Bach, although Schumann, Vierne, Gounod, and Beethoven are awesome too. I've also been starting to listen to Mozart's music more and more lately. (They say you don't truly appreciate Mozart until you're 30, so maybe I'm slowly growing into it....) Outside of classical, I really like Johnny Cash. I've got most of his songs memorized.... Oh, and CAKE and They Might be Giants are awesome.

TV: I'm a sitcom addict. Thanks to the wonders of Netflix, I've seen every episode online of How I Met Your Mother, The Office, Parks and Recreation (the awesomest show ever), Better off Ted, and most of Frasier. Because I'm a nerd, I've also seen every episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and every Star Trek movie. The Voyage Home is, of course, the best.

Movies: I love stupid comedies. Some of my favorites are Airplane, Brain Donors, Once Bitten, Slammin' Salmon, 22 Jump Street, The Emperor's New Groove, and Despicable Me 2. I also really like historical and epic movies from the '50s and '60s, like Disney's version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Anastasia (with Ingrid Bergman and Yul Brenner), The Agony and the Ecstasy, and Lawrence of Arabia. The dialogue in movies was just awesomer back then.

I suppose I could mention this too here. I really like paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries. My favorite painters are Ivan Kramskoy, John Singer Sargent, Caspar David Friedrich, and Albert Bierstadt.

Books: I like Kurt Vonnegut a lot, and Terry Pratchett's Discworld books. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card was an awesome book too. Too bad Orson Scott Card kind of went off the deep end....

And food. Ummm. I'm a guy, so I'm pretty much always hungry. I like just about everything, except Vietnamese food. If I had to eat one thing only for the rest of my life, it would definitely be sushi. Or ice cream. But sushi would probably work much better from a long-term standpoint.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends.
Music.
My car.
Mountains.
A desert road stretching off to the horizon.
This is tougher than it seems....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to see a movie with a friend, or exploring some new highway I haven't been on before, or watching the sunset from a mountain somewhere, or eating ice cream. (Really, ice cream is likely to be included with any of the above.) I really don't like clubs, so you will probably never see me in one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
For the life of me, I cannot figure out what endorsing a check does. I've even asked bank tellers, and it stumps them every time.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

_____________________________________

Advanced Level:
6.) You can take a triple integral

8.) You have ever seen a road stretching across the desert floor as far as the eye can see, and felt an urge to see where it goes
8.1) You in fact did drive down that road to see where it goes
