My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Devon.

I spend most of my time playing/teaching violin and viola. Electric bass is quickly becoming one of my favorite instruments to play. I also dabble with piano, guitar, ukukeke, and mandolin, but I don't excel at any of those. One of my favorite things to do with the violin or viola is play in musicals. I also play in a string quartet for weddings and such. So yeah, if anybody reading this profile is getting married soon and would like to book a string quartet, you should totally shoot me a message... Also lately I've been doing more writing/recording.

I'm agnostic, and while I do the best I can to retain an open mind while dating the more devout members of society, I haven't had much luck with that in the past. I'm quite liberal, although politics is pretty draining. I used to pay a lot more attention to politics than I do now, but I won't let myself become completely uninformed.

I love my kitty. I love coffee. I own all 10 seasons of Friends on DVD. I love to swing dance, even though I'm a klutz. I really like the smell and sound of rain. Oh, and swingsets. If you would enjoy going to a park and swinging with me for a couple of hours, I would be thrilled. I guess I should warn you that I can have a pretty sarcastic and/or crude sense of humor at times. But I don't know, I feel like I don't really know how to properly summarize myself. Ask me whatever you want. I swear that during normal conversation I won't start this many subsequent sentences with the word "I."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have an associates in music education from SWIC. Some aspects of my future are still a work in progress, but right now I teach violin lessons to kids and stuff. It's a pretty sweet job, and most of my students are super cool kids. I'll probably always teach because I love that. I'm also taking recording classes and I just try to play music whenever I can. Basically I'm just a busy musician.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
procrastinating and then getting everything done at the last second

making situations awkward
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably meaningless mundane details that don't reveal as much information as they think. I don't really know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I listen to a pretty wide variety of music. I try to not immediately rule anything out, but I have to admit a predisposition against country, hip-hop/r&b, and some of the more over-the-top types of rock. I do believe that The Beatles are one of the greatest bands to ever exist. Other bands or artists I can come up with off the top of my head would be Violent Femmes, Regina Spektor, The Rolling Stones, The White Stripes, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and there's so much more, but you know how it is. This is a particularly difficult list to narrow down. But my favorite stuff is probably 60's, and indie stuff.
I also listen to a fair amount of classical music. Favorite composers including, but not limited to: Jean Sibelius, Dmitri Shostakovitch, Maurice Ravel, Sergei Prokofiev, and Niccolò Paganini.

Some favorite movies: Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, Anything by Quentin Tarantino, The Count of Monte Cristo, Blues Brothers, Beauty and the Beast, The Last Samurai, anything with Johnny Depp <3, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Princess Bride, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Pan's Labyrinth, Goodfellas; I'm entertained by almost anything, though. Influenced largely by my grandma, I've grown very accustomed to chick flicks. Horror movies are always fun to cuddle up to.

I feel like television shows should be mentioned as well. Favorites are: Arrested Development, The Office, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Wilfred, Archer, Californication, Legend of the Seeker, Friends, Scrubs, The Daily Show, South Park

Honestly, I'm not a ginormous reader. I have read a bunch by the author Piers Anthony, and I've read like... Harry Potter and stuff. Typically, people just make me read books and I'll end up enjoying them. I regret not reading more than I do.

As for food... chocolate is pretty amazing. I love burgers... I don't know, I like a lot of unhealthy things. I would love to eat healthier, it that stuff tasted better. I do however, like to try a variety of foods and enjoy going out to eat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Besides vital organs, food, water, and shelter, this seems like a silly question.

I would prefer not to do without:
My Phone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what my purpose is, how I can make the best of the time I have, and how to make my OkCupid profile sound deep.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Normally I'm at home watching something random on Netflix or playing a video game. I go out sometimes, but I generally prefer quiet fun. Board games. Cuddling is always nice. That's quiet and fun. None of what I just said is really specific to Fridays, though.

Oh, also, I'm always looking for someone to go see more shows/concerts with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am the Dread Pirate Roberts.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–25
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to meet a person who is more interesting than an OkCupid profile could ever sound.

Or if you think my presence in your life could possibly have a positive impact.

Or if you think we might be compatible or something.

Or if you are a musician and want to jam.

Or if you are not a musician and want to eat jam.

Or if purple is your favorite color.

Or if you feel like it for any other reason that is not listed above. It's too much responsibility to come up with every scenario on my own.

Now, a lot of people say stuff at this point like "uh, only message me if you have something interesting to say or whatever." Honestly, if your first message isn't all that profound, I will forgive you. Just uh, say what's in your heart?
