My self-summary
I'm often accused of taking things too seriously. That I should lighten up and enjoy myself. I get rather bored by the trivial and mundane but I become impassioned and alive when discussing ideas... any ideas. Economics, politics, music, art, philosophy, history, science... What could be more exciting?

Sometimes I feel that I've traded my soul for security. Not literally of course... What I mean is that I was once an artist, a poet, a philosopher, and mostly a well trained classical musician who made his living as a singer, his practice at the piano, and his free time writing symphonies. A Bohemian.

And now I work! I get paid an embarrassing amount of money to do something that comes quite easy for me and I am good at it... And I usually enjoy it. I am successful! I am happy! But I miss watching the sun rise from a night that never ended and I miss the melancholy bliss that every artist knows and grows to depend on.
What I’m doing with my life
I think that is one of those questions that I'll need retrospect 20 years from now to be able to answer.
I’m really good at
I am a good communicator. As a professional salesman I must use my linguistic dexterity on a regular basis and the proper turn of phrase can mean the difference between a big paycheck and nothing at all. I've also worked as a professional singer, pianist, and composer. Music is my passion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(a) everything by Ayn Rand, Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins...

(b) The Lord of the Rings, Serenity, Shine, The Aviator, Amadeus, V for Vendetta...

(c) Rachmaninoff, Mozart, Opera, atonal, sad music, light music, Penderecki, Korngold, Prokofiev, Beethoven, Dowland, Berio, Sinatra, Tim Minchin

(d) sushi, pizza, the occasional ceasar salad...
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a left-hand alone pianist. an atheist, and in a polyamorous relationship.
You should message me if
I would very much like to meet creative types... I have learned to trust the OKCupid percentages but I will easily make an exception if you know what it means to be an artist.

I love talking about music, philosophy, politics, ethics, epistemology, nerd humor, science...

I guess the only things I don't care to talk about are sports and farming (heh). If you feel the same way perhaps we might hit it off.
