My self-summary
I'm sincere, open-minded, diverse, and humble ... with several layers of quirkiness. I have come to believe that you receive great fortune when you do the right thing and are helpful to others.

I recently moved to Orange Co. and doing a 1 yr. program for Broadcast Journ. at UNC. I volunteered doing radio shows some over past 10-years.. now I'm trying to make into career. All of the stations I've been with have had more varied/alternative formats (not commercial FM radio).

The rest of the profile is a cut/paste from past/current profile ... I only mention this b/c there might be a couple of Asheville-centric references that don't make sense. I'm too busy with all these life changes (and busy procrastinating) to modify profile, but will get to that one-of-these-days.

And you ?
What I’m doing with my life
As above.
I’m really good at
Finding the perfect tune (or just background music) and introducing new music to friends. Right now I do a weekly "free-form" music show called Wildcard Wednesday on WHUP. I've done radio (p/t, volunteer basis) for several years. I like a whole bunch of musics - from abstract/electronic music ... to old Metallica, to mellow/artsy stuff like Talk, Talk (after they evolved from 80's synth pop) ... to insanely heavy/rough stuff stuff like live Ministry and this really wacky band from Seattle called Lesbian. I just got Marcus Roberts (jazz piano) playing w/ Bela Fleck (banjo) cd. Listening to cd that features all new Brazilian bands... All that plus music ranging from Classical to old ZZ Top.

I'm improving on identifying the things I'm really bad at - but no need to go into that here. : )
The first things people usually notice about me
Hopefully that I'm a real person - not faking it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
MUSIC - as above.

MOVIES - b/c of my endless quest to listen/seek out new music there are so many movies i have not seen... i hear "omg, you haven't seen that" a lot. though i do love movies. but, yes, never saw Rainman.

TV - canceling my cable was *great* decision. i'm actually much happier w/ the measly 4 channels i now get. my fave is UNC-TV Explorer channel which has incredible travel show called Globe Trekker.

BOOKS - i'm trying to start reading books, I have to kinda force myself (I always feel I should be doing something else). but when I do, i love it. I just got a few Steinbeck novels and really just read his short-novel 'Cannery Row' - it's awesome. Since I currently reside in Asheville I feel that I should read Thomas Wolfe 'Look Homeward Angel' - anyone have feedback ?

FOOD - i love good food, but who doesn't. 80% of my diet is healthy (local meats, lots of vegetables) -- the other 20% not that great (yes, to the point of eating straight up cookie dough). for some reason I really hate the term "foodie", it just bothers me. my fave food, which probably doesn't sound that good to most, is oyster stew.
The six things I could never do without
* family, friends, and dog
* sunshine
* yoga + outdoor exercise
* good food & brewskies
* vacations
* mint nicotine gum (sad kinda, but true...and quite tasty)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
who what where when how... and lots of WTF ? but primarily WHY's

also i don't like pictures w/ the classic "hand underneath the chin" pose, who-the-hell came up with that ?

Should I write in proper sentence form ? or just use lower case b/c it's quicker ?
On a typical Friday night I am
most likely passed out under a bar stool at the local honky-tonk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
recent desire to play badminton.
You should message me if
MUSIC - my main passion, as described above. like the rest of my life, I enjoy lots of variety. Kuddoz to Frank Zappa.

MOVIES - b/c of my endless quest to listen/seek out new music there are so many movies i have not seen... i hear "omg, you haven't seen that" a lot. though i do love movies. but, yes, never saw Rainman.
