My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My profile is very detailed; thanks in advance for reading!

At heart, I am a musician and creative so-and-so. I moved to New York 15 years ago to become a famous rock star, and after 8 years of waiting tables and bartending, instead joined the management team of a famous recording artist -- a position I held for 7 years until this past March.

I am very passionate about languages and travel, and I am planning to begin part time graduate work in Applied Linguistics during the fall of 2015. I have no idea where my pursuits might take me geographically in the next few years, though I would prefer to be based out of New York with frequent international travel. My life is about to become an incredible adventure, and I would like to share that adventure with YOU.

I want to meet an amazing, beautiful, radiant, strong, charismatic, intelligent, worldly, and horny woman with strong opinions and enough passion to bring down the house -- and I want to have a lot of fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life is in flux right now...A challenging music industry / artist management position that I held for 7 years came to an end this past March. After a bit of soul searching and encouragement from my mentor in the field, I decided to start my own music and entertainment business consulting company. I'm also planning to move into my own one-bedroom apartment in a few months -- a change I am really looking forward to, having had various roommates for the past 15 years!

In addition to my new consulting company, I am a bit of an internet entrepreneur, with successful online eBay and Amazon stores that I am constantly working to build -- which will eventually provide me with enough consistent monthly earnings to cover my rent and expenses. I realize that money is a comfort, and without talking about it or focusing on it too much, I am systematically setting up my life in such a way that money will not be an issue or source of stress for me or my partner.

I am very excited by the idea of creating a new consulting career for myself. HOWEVER, when you meet me, my consulting company will be a startup and a work in progress. My life and the way I earn my income will be a work in progress. I will seem very scattered at times as I work to build everything that I envision. On top of this, I will be studying multiple foreign languages (see below), which might make you wonder if I am schizophrenic.

YOU MUST BE COOL WITH THIS.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
In the somewhat recent past, I was good at various things musical -- singing, writing songs, recording and producing music, and playing a few instruments such as piano and drums. I am on the cusp of returning to my own music, to my own singing, and it is a very exciting time for me right now.

Throughout the last few years, during an extended "liminal phase" of sorts, I discovered a talent for learning and speaking other languages. I spend a lot of my free time taking classes in and studying these languages. I also volunteer teach beginning spoken Cantonese Chinese to adults in Manhattan's Chinatown. Starting next fall, I will teach beginning Mandarin as well.

I am a very deep thinker -- an emotional and perceptive person with a strong intuition that at time borders on ESP. After having written over 13,000 pages in various journals since 1998, I have a pretty good idea of what is important to me in life, and I have some very definite goals that I intend to accomplish on this planet.

I enjoy "language immersion" world travel; writing and blogging about travel and the human journey towards self-actualization (check out www.oneweekinmexico.com for my most recent effort); speedreading non-fiction books; singing, playing piano and drums (though I am just getting back to these pursuits after 7-8 years off); going to the gym to do cardio and lift weights; martial arts (in the past when I have taken classes); studying Cantonese, Mandarin, French, Spanish, Hebrew and Urdu; restoring old things such as cars, radios, musical instruments, and miscellaneous gadgets; and connecting and reconnecting with friends and important people from my past and present.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been told that I am good looking, though mainly by older moms and grandmas, for whom it is apparently safe to make such an outlandish assertion.

I have thick, curly brown hair, and after 6 and a half years of braces as a kid, I have nice, straight teeth.

I am fairly stocky, slightly chubby, and I have decent muscles under the pudge that I am working to get rid of at the gym.

I have been told that I can charm the pants off a person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
These days, I mostly read books on linguistics, specifically about the fastest and most effective ways to learn other languages. My favorite novel is Jack London's Martin Eden. I also love to read Silver and Bronze Age comic books (1960s - 1980s), though I am currently selling most of my collection to raise money for my upcoming move and in favor of reading digital comics on my tablet.

I am very passionate about vintage kung fu movies; I am a sucker for romantic comedies (mostly because my own love life is so utterly pathetic); and I have a soft spot in my heart for Disney / Pixar animated films as well as Harry Potter movies -- especially if they are overdubbed into another language.

I haven't been to the theatre in a long time, which is kind of stupid, since one of the reasons I moved to New York 15 years ago was to audition for musical theatre. I LOVE Broadway musicals in an almost gay way. It will be obvious to anyone who knows me that this last comment was not in any way offensive.

I have some really annoying food allergies to milk and eggs. Therefore, I eat like a vegan, but with meat every other day or so. Not surprisingly given my love of all things Chinese, one of my favorite types of cuisine is Cantonese food. I also like Thai food, and dietary sensitivities aside, I am always in search of a burger deluxe that will change my view of the world.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cats.
My languages.
My friends.
My family.
Deeply green vegetables.
My faith in myself that I am leading an extraordinary life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How far I have come, and how far I want to go.

I also think about sex all the time, and my next partner will do the same.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I spend most Friday nights reading a book or studying a foreign language; or perhaps browsing for 48 cent and $1 books at the Strand; or having dinner with a close friend; or watching a movie at home, curled up with my cats. I am a very independent guy, BUT IT WOULD BE NICER to share my Friday nights with a cute lady who would also want to share her Friday nights with me.

You are much more likely to catch me at a funky coffee shop that plays weird outsider music than at at a loud, trendy bar. I am definitely NOT into loud bars or the club scene. I don't really drink much alcohol, but I certainly have nothing against people who drink. I am NOT a recovering alcoholic; I just very rarely drink because I don't enjoy it that much.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often cry at the end of a good chick flick -- and sometimes during the opening credits as well...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am not 100% certain that I am ready for a "serious" relationship right now...but I would like to be. Ready...

I know that I WANT TO meet my next girlfriend -- when I am ready to see her for who she is and invite her into my life without comparing her to ghosts from my past. I know that I WANT to find a lasting love. I know that I WANT the fairy tale -- when I am ready to accept it into my life.

I kind of hope that might be soon...

I would like to go out on a bunch of dates with passionate, interesting women who might find me interesting and attractive as well -- and hopefully, in the process, discover a lasting love.

Thanks for reading!
