My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an extroverted, energetic dude who enjoys simplicity. Creativity, humor, oxford commas, and adventure are incredibly important to me. I'm rarely ever bored. I'm very new to Chicago. Show me the cool places.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Long term: I'm working as a bartender at a cocktail bar using my creative talents to produce some cool stuff. I'm aiming at owning my own brewpub someday.

Short term: I play various types of music, I commute via bike (weather permitting,) I've recently taken up fly fishing, I cook healthy, delicious meals. All of these things take up quite a bit of my life and I'm constantly pursuing being better at all of these things. I'm a male Martha Stewart who's never done jail time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been doing the music thing for a long time now. I studied jazz performance in college and still perform somewhat regularly, but it's taken a back seat to some more practical career ventures. I did a recording with Gallagher about the Rod Blagojevich scandal in early 2009. Yeah, the dude that smashes watermelons. Seriously. I also had a thing for building guitars for a bit. My only electric guitar I now own was built completely by my hands.

I cook a TON and I experiment with all kinds of good foods. Sometimes things don't work out so hot (the black bean and seitan steaks tasted like dog food) but my Pad Thai, curried lentil and sweet potato stew, or tofu palak paneer will rock your world.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

If I haven't seen anyone in the past year or so this is always the first thing they say. Two years ago I started taking my health much more seriously. I'm down about 75 lbs. Being healthy is awesome. I'd appreciate an interest in health and general well being from a prospective partner.

My tattoos, glasses, and tin foil hat get a lot of attention too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: Various biographies of dead musicians, Stephen Hawking and other books on astrophysics and theoretical physics. South of No North, Ham on Rye, A Short History of Nearly Everything, Siddharta, The Road, Old Man and the Sea, anything David Sedaris. A friend just gave me a copy of the Qur'an and I'm looking forward to diving into that soon.

MOVIES: Eternal Sunshine, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Big Lebowski, O Brother Where Art Thou, Stranger than Fiction, and most anything Mel Brooks.

SHOWS: I had a crippling addiction to Breaking Bad. Other than that, The Kids in the Hall, Bob's Burgers, Orange is the New Black, Wilfred, Ren and Stimpy, Homeland, True Detective, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and most recently The Knick. We live in the golden age of TV drama.

FOOD: I like my hot sauces like I like my Sheryl Crow: strong enough to be my man.

MUSIC: Here's where it gets complicated. If you press play on my iTunes library the last song will end about 3 months later. I have a deep appreciation for ALL music, even Country and Rap. I tend to lean towards more singer/songwriter type music but I don't dismiss anything except Dream Theatre.

If I'm doing stuff around the house I'll blast some early 80's punk/new wave such as Eddie and the Hot Rods, Wreckless Eric, or The Only Ones. If I need good sleeping music Olafur Arnalds, The Album Leaf, Bonobo, and Sigur Ros are my go-tos. My iPhone currently has a ton of Tom Waits, Wilco, Eef Barzelay/Clem Snide, and Johnny Flynn. I studied Jazz in college and am a huge fan of Milt Jackson and his various projects and love a lot of the later avante garde stuff like Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, later John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders and the like. I write music that is heavily influenced by John Hartford and Merle Haggard. And I have a soft spot for the typical Indie stuff such as Les Savy Fav, Built to Spill, Yo La Tengo, the Replacements, The National, etc. If I need a good cry I'll listen to some early Michael Bolton or Kenny G while sipping on some Zima.

Currently playing my Atoms for Peace, Basia Bulat, The Beta Band, Black Lips, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Kings of Convenience, Local Natives, The Middle East, The Suffocation Keep, Volcano Choir, Washed Out, and The Whitest Boys Alive playlist over and over again.
The six things I could never do without

I could have dozens of chameleons in my place and I would never know.

I always have some terrible song stuck in my head. Always. I've been trying to get the Golden Girls theme out of my head for a couple weeks now.
