My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ok, let's start with the basic things you should know about me (just so I don't waste anyone's time making them read through everything to find out I'm not for them). I play drums, am employed, love rock/metal music, am a huge video game/movie/cartoon/sci fi nerd when not rocking people's faces, and definitely know how to be the life of the party, whatever said party is.

I thrive on social situations, and always try to see the best in people while accepting their imperfections. I'm a very progressive thinker, meaning I always try to keep one foot forward in life instead of wallowing in the past. Nobody likes someone who dwells on the spilled milk of their life, especially if it's something from years ago. I mean... that just cannot smell good at all :O

I also see myself as intelligent, funny, and dashingly good looking.... feel free to let me know if you agree :P (this statement is obviously a joke, I'm certainly not that much of a cocky jackass! Just look at the pictures I've posted and make your own judgements...)

Alright, if you've made it through all that junk I've typed and still want to know more... you're in luck!! I've got a whole profile still to read! Have fun!

If not, feel free to turn away. Otherwise... courage.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
First and foremost I'm a drummer. Not just the kind that picked up a cheap kit and decided they could make it big with their friends in a high school garage rock band, ohhhhh no. I've taken professional lessons for several years, have been playing for almost 18 years now, and am now actually giving drum lessons, which I hope to convert to being my primary source of income over the next 2-5 years. On top of that, I play in 2 bands that keep very busy, so downtime is something that's pretty rare to me.

Of course this doesn't fully pay the bills for me, so when I'm not drumming I work as an attendant for a friend of mine with a disability. It's definitely not a job for everyone, but it pays well for what it is, and I at least get to feel like I'm really helping instead of just playing the rat race in any other typical corporate hole in the wall that you can never truly advance in.

This isn't my ultimate plan, however. The ultimate plan is to hopefully get started in the fall to get a certification or associates degree in programming, as I've 1. Always worked well with computers, and 2. Have a lot of friends working in that field and am constantly told of the opportunity available there right now. Essentially I've been told that by getting into that industry, you can almost do whatever you want, when you want!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
BEING AWESOME, ballin' 24/7 yo
(fyi, if you don't appreciate the above statement I can tell you right now it's not gonna work)

First off, I'm good at playing music. It might sound cocky to say, but again, have been playing for nearly years. And while it may have not brought me fame and fortune yet, it has taken me half way across the country 2 times now, so there's that at least. I also draw and paint (though to be honest I haven't done any paintings in several years to be honest). Outside of that, I've been told I'm really good at doing voice impersonations, Math (nerdy but true), and taking things apart and putting them back together, whatever they may be.

I also think I'm pretty good at talking to people, both on a professional and personal level. From what I've learned with my bands, I can say that if you want to be successful at anything you've got to learn how to make friends and maintain those friendships, because you never know when someone will come to a position in their life where they can then really help you out with yours.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My striking, Viking like stature/appearance (which is ironic because I've no Nordic descendants from the past 300 years of my family I think....) Seriously though, my hair, height, and blue eyes are what most people have told me they've first noticed before.

In terms of personality, what I've been hearing as of late is that I'm apparently an extremely nice, decent human being and easy to talk to, to which I have no complaints over.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Honestly you should skip this section and come back to it if you're pressed for time. You heard what I just said about my talking problem. It's all over the place and I've found no decent way of trimming it down, despite several attempts. That being said, if you've got time, read on! (Can't say I didn't warn you)

- Movies, I like just about anything, as long as it's quality, or if it's bad, at least so bad it's hilarious. I go from Star Wars to Paranormal Activity to Anchorman to What Dreams May Come and everything in between. Not super huge on Romantic type movies, however, I watched it once and will admit I liked the Notebook... SHUT UP. I've also never watched Twilight, and based on expert testimony of other friends of mine that mistakenly did, never intend to

- Music:

If you don't say METALLICA'S the best band ever I WILL FIGHT YOU

Seriously though, they annoy the Hell out of me, I just couldn't resist the joke

My tastes are actually all over the place. I'm more of a hard rock/metal person, but I can go from that to techno to classic rock to rap/hip hop and even classical. I'll name some examples of things in regular rotation for me, and you can determine whether you'd think we'd match up on some of this stuff or not:

System of a Down
Serj Tankien
Linkin Park
Bad Religion
August Burns Red
Devil Wears Prada
Snoop Dogg (Lion)
Shostakovich (10th Symphony 2nd movement to be specific)
Jimmy Hendrix
A Perfect Circle
The Misfits
White/Rob Zombie
Pink Floyd
Drop Kick Murphys
The Lonely Island
The Human Abstract
Led Zeppelin
Frank Zappa
Black Sabbath
(you get the idea, ton of stuff here, strike up a conversation for more!)

- TV Shows: I have a lot of standard stuff, and a lot of out there stuff involved here. Things I watch that you may have heard of: Futurama, Family Guy, American Dad, Robot Chicken, Squidbillies, The Simpsons (older at least,) Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Weeds, The X-Files, Supernatural, Avatar: The Last Airbender/The Lengend of Korra, Adventure Time, and The Regular Show. I'm also a little bit of an anime nerd, and enjoy the series of Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Full Metal Alchemist, and Soul Eater to name a few (partially because I don't remember the names of several others that I've seen, haha.)

- Books: Pretty much hard core sci-fi/fantasy (Star Wars, Harry Potter, and LotR FTW) or anything else I find interesting. Again, kind of all over the place

- Food: I like my food like my movies, not too picky as long as it's good. Chinese and Sushi are two notable favorites. I'll also add as of 10/28/2014 that I've been getting back into eating better. Grilled chicken salads with dark greens but with some good cheese and ranch dressing might seem like an oxymoron, but just.... damn does it manage to be good AND make me feel good about myself at the same time haha. It totally works. Don't judge.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Normal basic necessities for human survival aside, I'd be pretty boned if I didn't have the following:

-My friends/family/professional and social network I've spent years building
-My cat... seriously, he's awesome!!
-Smart phone (seriously, it sounds lame, but once you go you can't go back)
-My dreams, goals, and aspirations; something to work towards, a reason for persevering everyday
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Honestly, how I can get a band famous, ways I can open up my own business, and the fact that I'm in my 30's and still have yet to feel like I'm really in my 30's
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Preventing forest fires

Quite frankly anything can happen, typical is non-existent. Could be at the movies, could be road tripping, could be at a convention type event, could be bar hopping, could be playing some sort of musical thing, you get the idea. At the time of writing this I was actually out playing midnight ultimate frisbee with some people I never met (just fyi I sucked, as I've not played it in like 4 years, but who cares)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was totally the nose picker in 2nd grade, and I sometimes wonder if my teacher making a public class spectacle of it did emotional damage to my 8 year old self. It didn't help that upon seeing this teacher later in life I realized he was, in a fact,a genuine douche bag
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you're someone who's funny but knows how to be an adult when they need to be, but when they're being funny isn't afraid to go ALL OUT. If you're wanting to talk to a guy who knows how to keep these both in balance and actually legitimately keep his s!!t together, you should message. Hell, if you read all this and just think I'd be someone who's fun to party with, you should message me!

Revised statement: If you don't consider yourself normal, if you're quirky, a little left of center, a break from ordinary, whatever you wanna call it, hit me up, because normal people can get boring.

Also, if anyone messages me and I don't respond immediately, it's possible I got really busy that week, or am trying to find the EXACT right thing to send you in a response, or whatever myriad of reasons that come up for a message getting held up. It happens, I just figured I'd put it out there.

Lastly... if you've managed to read down to this point, kudos to you!! I appreciate you taking the time to find out more about this curious person known as myself. I hope if nothing else I made your time killed on the internet a bit more enjoyable than had you not read this :D
