I enjoy keeping active, checking out new restaurants, breweries,
cities, and my social group has changed from having many
acquaintances to hang out with, into hanging out with smaller
groups of friends I am closer to, and have known for longer. I did
work at a restaurant that kept me up late and out late, which
really wasn't for me. I since have tried to be more focused on
improving quality of life, developing a life plan, with career
development, close personal relationships, and continued learning
being the core principles. I recently got a bicycle up and in
ridable condition and rode it in the Tour de Cure in Louisville. I
try to shoot up to Louisville and Cincinnatti when there isn't time
for a longer vacation, to check out the art museums and see
concerts. I own a condo downtown and make it a point to walk just
about everywhere. In fact I am just as content to walk down to
Shorty's, get a bottle of wine, and spend an afternoon making
something to eat than I am going out to a restaurant with friends.
I do enjoy traveling to new places, and have been to Belize,
Austria, and Germany. Unfortunately I just had to pass up an
opportunity to go to Amsterdam and also Essex, due to being
involved in a career change, which is pretty much a full time job
in and of itself.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a degree in sociology and philosophy from the University of
Kentucky, and work in IT. I do miss the conversations from both
disciplines! As far as interests are concerned, I am into music
(spending time discovering new artists and seeing concerts),
photography, and have been teaching myself how to use tools for
graphic design (photoshop, indesign, illustrator), and plan on
creating a website soon (never made one before, thought it would be
cool to learn).
I’m really good at
Rattling off ten bands you've never heard of, fixing your computer,
and drinking coffee. ..but what's impressive is that I can do all 3
at the same time.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Largely a collection of post-punk, new wave, alternative,
indie, and electronic. Currently listening to Young Galaxy, School
of Seven Bells, The Outrunners, Lazerhawk, Neon Neon (I've been way
into 80's retro bands). I Probably spend way more time than I
should admit digging up new artists.
Shows: The Wire, Rescue Me, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, True
Blood, Mad Men. Not a big T.V. person, really, but I do enjoy shows
which do something different, bring a heightened quality to the
table, or are just plain fun to watch.
Books: Do Android's Dream of Electric Sheep, Girl with the Dragon
Tattoo, Brave New World, The Great Gatsby. Avid reader, with
interests all across the board. Will probably enjoy any literature
which includes compelling characters, or noir style mystery and
Movies: Blade Runner, Shaun of the Dead, Solaris, The American,
Michael Clayton, 28 Days Later, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Evil Dead,
Office Space, Inception, Wall street. I like movies which include
believable, yet creative worlds, the ones that you can't stop
thinking about for days. Movies that are just fun are great too, no
reason to be all intellectually serious all the time.
Food: Italian, Indian, Korean, Chinese, Thai, I love trying new
cuisine. Will probable try just about anything... don't like
anchovies though, even though I like caesar dressing...I know, it
The six things I could never do without
Caffeine and music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Career opportunities, what city I would rather live in, and why all
the best bands never travel near here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friends or working on a project.
You should message me if
you need a caffeine fix or if you know of a good local concert.
