Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is DJ Steve Aoki. I've made a lot of techno music. Not too
long ago one of my fans was trampled at a packed show I played in
South America. I've been known to hang out with the likes of
Lindsay Lohan and other Hollywood elite. I'm the heir to the
Benihana franchise, so I'm also filthy rich.
Juuuuuuuuust kidding. But my name is really Steven Aoki.
I want to make some new friends. Like completely new ones.
I've lived in Northampton for some time, and I love the friends I
have, and I love this town, but I need to find some new friendships
outside of this town because it's really easy to feel trapped and
stagnant here. They do call the valley a black hole, because it's
very easy to get here, but it's almost impossible to leave once you
do (even if you can't wait to get out).
I'm not sure I'm looking for anything romantic at the current
moment, I'm concentrating on my life, I.E. staying ambitious,
maintaining forward momentum, so on and so forth.
Now hang on just one second. That DOESN'T mean that I don't like to
be around wonderful women who I vibe with and can start new
friendships with. There's nothing wrong with having friends who you
If you're looking for a man, want to get married or be in a
relationship, time to move on, I'm not your guy. But if you want to
find a new friend? A real one? Then let's fucking go! I'm ready.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm trying to figure that out. I've worked a lot of different jobs,
done a lot of different things, and nothings really clicked yet.
Maybe you can help me figure it out over dinner. Currently I am one
of the newest supervisors at Antonio's Pizza in Amherst. I work a
What I do know is that music has always been integral to my life,
and I've often tried to shape whatever career I've wanted around
it, but it's hard, man.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Music. I'll sing you a song, or write you a song, or arrange you a
song, whatever you want.
I'm good at talking. Have a bad day? Give me a call, I've got the
words to heal what ails ya.
Being a friend. If we click, and we become fast pals, I'll be
loyal, trustworthy, and dependable.
Also I can walk on water, fight crime in superhero costumes, learn
foreign languages in minutes, and fly.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile, obviously! Haha, I can charm the pants off you with a
well placed smile and a sincere look in the eyes. Most of the time
it's genuine and not calculated, but trust me, I know how to use
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite books is hard, I read occasionally, but not often. It's
more in spurts. I'll read 5 books in a month, then not read for a
year. I think the book I've enjoyed most recently was Ender's Game,
and it was good timing because that movie came out soon after and
it's always fun to compare a novel and it's cinematic counterpart.
And now, I'm slowly getting through Crime and Punishment for the
first time. Dostoyevsky is not a light read...
Movies? The Royal Tennenbaums is still one of my favorite movies of
all time, but I love crappy action movie trope, like "The
Expendables" I mean come on... so much fun. I also love Miyazaki
movies, grew up on them.
I love a lot of music. But my favorites are absolutely the Beatles,
Frank Sinatra, The Shins, and Beach House.
And food. I love so many different kinds of food. I can't pick a

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My computer. It's the hub of my social, work, and artistic
My guitar. It's been my companion since I've had it, and I don't
know where my life would be now with out it.
My water bottle. Water is very important to me. I drink a lot of
The internet. I wouldn't be here on this site without it I'll tell
A kitchen. I love to cook, and if I couldn't cook for someone, I
would be devastated.
My family. That's the only constant in my life. My family. And I
couldn't live without them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future. I know that a lot of people on here want ambitious,
driven, successful men. I've got to be honest, I'm not sure what
I'm doing yet with my life. Music is a huge part of it, but it's
incredibly difficult to make music your living.
I also think about love. All the time. I'm a shameless hopeless
romantic, so I have a tendency to get heartbroken often. That's not
all bad though, because it's only in those dark emotional times
that I'm the most inspired and creative in my music. So if I'm
heartbroken? No problem! Listen to the new soothing jams of *insert
current ex here* album! Yeah... sometimes I'm "that guy". Not proud
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
That completely depends on who I'm with! I've been known to go out
and get schwasty and have a grand ol' time, but I'm just as happy
staying in and having wonderful conversations over a good home
cooked meal. If I'm lucky I'm playing a show for you to come and
It's really what you're in the mood for, because I want my friends
to be happy. I'm up for anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've had issues with depression in the past. I'm not perfect. I
don't complain about my illness, but it is something that I have
struggled with for most of my adult life.
That being said, doesn't mean I don't know how to have fun, or that
I don't love myself. ;)
