My name is Adam. Here's the short version: I'm a something of a
renaissance man and jack of all trades with an absurd sense of
humor who loves to laugh (even if its just at myself). The only
sense I can make out of life is a sense of humor (not to say I
can't/don't take life seriously). I've been a soldier, aircraft
pilot, radio DJ, teacher, musician, sound engineer, author, and
poet. By trade, I work as an IT Director for a medical
I'm not used to writing about myself (I don't think any one person
can be accurately defined in a few short blurbs). For best results,
try getting to know me the old fashioned way. :-)
I am a cesspool of unwanted knowledge, whose life obsessions
include music, writing, computers (right now I'm exploring the full
potential of Linux), photography, history (I'm a huge history
buff), languages, philosophy, and a variety of other
And now for the serious stuff....
Yes, I admit it. I'm looking for that one person who matches my
wavelength. As fair warning, I don't want to lunge into a serious
relationship without getting to know someone first. All things in
What I'm looking for could be summarized as the following: I want
someone I could pull off a heist with. ;-) (Read as "I'm looking
for an equal, a friend, someone to share life with... a "kindred
spirit" as it were...)
What I’m doing with my life
Taking it one day at a time. Doing the 9 to 5 thing and working
with my recently reunited band, Grace of a Stone on writing some
new material. Exciting times :) I'm also working on some
humanitarian efforts, including an effort to give a Liberian school
it's first computer lab. I'm always looking for ways to make
technology more accessible, with my goal being to make technology
work for people, not the other way around.
I’m really good at
Singing, playing bass, writing, photography, anything computer
related, being a cesspool of useless knowledge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a bit on the tall side at 6' 3".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music is a big part of my life - favorites include Soundgarden,
Alice in Chains, Jethro Tull, Tool, Rage Against the Machine, A
Perfect Circle, Nick Drake, Funkadelic, Temple of the Dog, Pearl
Jam, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, The Dead Weather, Jimi Hendrix,
The Mountain Goats, Cream, Jefferson Airplane, et cetera.
I'm somewhat picky and kind of old school when it comes to movies -
love the silver screen classics like Casablanca, Double Indemnity,
Citizen Kane, The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, A Fistful of
Dollars, and He Walked by Night (just to name a few). As for more
modern films, I really enjoy Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, American
History X, Into the Wild, V for Vendetta, Dune, Sin City, The Naked
Gun, Airplane, Vanilla Sky, Se7en, Vanishing Point, etc...
Hmm let's see- books. I enjoy both classic and modern literature
and poetry from authors including Arthur Conan Doyle (love Sherlock
Holmes), Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare, Kahlil Gibran, Harry
Turtledove (I love his alternate history books- e.g. The Guns of
And now that you've read that, I live on a steady diet of Star
Trek, Mystery Science Theater 3000 and RiffTrax. Yes, I am a huge
The six things I could never do without
My friends, family, computer, bass guitar, pen and paper, and some
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing usually. Doing whatever comes to mind.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a noticeable subcutaneous cyst smack dab in the middle of my
forehead. Everyone always asks if I hit my head. The answer is "yes
- when I was 5 years old."
Never healed right after accidentally slamming my thick skull into
an old steel jungle gym.
Remember when kids stuff wasn't all rubberized and "safe"? I do.
You should message me if
If you feel like I'm someone who is worth your time?
