I'm a gentleman. I value sincerity and like people who are authentic, straight-forward, honest and don't play games. Drama is a bore to me.
I'm a townie. I like living and working and hanging out in the city, but love ventures into the countryside -- rivers, mountains, beach, et al. -- to get away from the usual.
I'm also an individualist -- not really with the norm, and value people who are their own being. I'm not a hipster or other label -- just my own self.
I prefer people who think for themselves, have a creative bent, and know in their heart that gay people should have the right to marry. And pot should be decriminalized. (But I am not a smoker of. Maybe once or twice a year.)
I work at an ad agency, won several ad and design awards, and have a nice house ruled by a cat I rescued from downtown when he was a stray kitten. (I'm really a dog person, but my kitteh's cool with that.)
I've become a Gamecock football fan, but I love to watch soccer anytime. I like most kinds of music (excepting country unless its old or alt, and hip-hop unless its smart and not misogynist), like to see good bands, love to dance, and will one day figure out the meaning of life.
But for now, I like to enjoy good times with good people drinking good beer (or wine, gin, etc.) over great conversations -- with a tinge of inanity thrown-in just for kicks.
And sometimes the front porch or the couch bests a night out when it's time to chill and escape with a good book, a good movie or TV show, or marvelous music under a calm conversation into the wee hours.
And making people laugh and, once and a while, think about something new. I'm good at listening and sharing my thoughts.
Programming a play list for a compilation CD or party.
I'm really good at coming up with ideas and creative solutions. Like when back in college, fixing the carburetor with a toothpick and golf tee.
And sneaking out of work undetcted early on a Friday. (not that I can't leave early, it's just a litle game for me)
I guess my eyes, then chin. That I listen well and make conversation funny when it needs to be, and sincere when it's poignant.
Music-- jets to brazil. Spot on one of my fave bands. I like trip-hop, trance, dnb, folk, jazz, some choral and classical, punk is fun, EDM in genral is too. Spacey droney stuff. Exotica, middle eastern, Indian. But I can't stand Chinese opera (sorry, but I tried).
Food?!! What does food have to do with media?!! OK, any food that's awesome. Locally grown preferred.

I've never been to Congaree National Park (but want to!)
I was in an a capella troupe in college. Shoo-wop!
