I'm a musician and a scholar, hockey nut, golf enthusiast and baseball fan. I'm looking for connection, a companion, and would much rather my future family life be a little bit more like the Huxtable's and a little less like the Bluth's. I'm laid back and mild mannered but strong willed and always try to make sure to be rational above everything else. Don't worry though, I can be fiery when I need to, it's not just my hair that's that way.
On our first date I'll most likely poke fun at you in some way with a wry smile and a wink. I'm not good at winking though, so you'll probably make fun of me back. Then we'll laugh and sip our drinks. It will be great and not at all awkward or contrived.
Also, I have a dry sense of humor.
Also also, looking at Leonard Maltin makes me giggle. It's always better when people are funny by accident. He might be the best at it.
What I’m doing with my life
I work full time as a composer and play in a band. I absolutely
love what I do and couldn't imagine having taken a different career
path. Hopefully I can continue to have growth in my music and still
have the balance to enjoy my free time.
In that free time I like playing and watching sports, trying new
beers and whiskeys, and spending as much time as I can with the
people who matter to me.
I’m really good at
Honestly? Piano. Listening. Random statistics. Baking chocolate
chip cookies. Making my lists look like many small incomplete
sentences. Knowing the song I'm listening to but not remembering
enough of the lyrics to sing along.
The first things people usually notice about me
Only a ginger can call another ginger ginger. I'm actually the
height I say I am...no lying.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, Shoeless Joe, Hunger Games
books. Clearly I don't read enough.
Moves: Field of Dreams, Shawshank Redemption, American Beauty,
Hook, Inception, Saving Mr. Banks, Garden State
Shows: CSI, SVU, Jeopardy, Big Bang Theory, HIMYM, Newsroom, The
Wonder Years, Blue Bloods
Music: Everyone says they like everything so I'll just say what I
listened to last. Last 3 bands were Neon Trees, Imagine Dragons,
New Politics, and before that my John Williams soundtrack
Food: I'm the best Jew ever - my favorite foods are lobster,
chicken parm and bacon. I like other things too, don't
worry...although I have the cilantro soap gene. I can't handle it.
Stop making fun of me!
The six things I could never do without
family & friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Recently my day to day life. The last few months have involved a
lot of transition in my professional life and I'm still settling
in. I think about my writing a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging with friends or family usually. Sometimes I'm
playing shows, which also means hanging with friends. There's
usually bourbon or some beer involved.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish my life had a soundtrack.
You should message me if
I mean who am I to control that? I'm looking for someone I connect
with, preferably Jewish or non-religious. I like a bit of a
challenge so I want to be with someone who excites me and keeps me
on my toes.
If you think that's you, send me a message! I'm nice...but not too
