Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I'm Nick. Nice to make your digital acquaintance. :-)
I'm a recording engineer, as well as a lifelong musician (a
bassist). Aside from my skills in the classical and jazz genres, I
am also an avid metalhead. I like to find ways to play all three
genres at the same time.
I'm an unabashed nerd, in a variety of ways, and I definitely
embrace that side of myself. Feeding my thirst for knowledge is
something that is very important to me. However, I sometimes find
myself reading about random things, instead of reading what I
should be reading. It can be annoying, but usually ends up being
I'm a textbook empath, aside from the fact that I am usually not
sensitive to little things, and remain composed for the big things.
I'm the most extroverted introvert you'll ever meet, and I've found
the right balance of the two.
I'm a passionate person, and I very much enjoy talking about and
sharing the things I find fascinating or exciting with others. I
likely will do just that on a first date. It's how I get
comfortable with someone I'm first meeting, and how I generally
bond with the people I care about. I'm just as interested to hear
about your passions, and share that excitement with you. If that
sounds boring, or uninteresting to you, then I wish you the best of
I'm originally from Virginia, but I'm not a southern guy, aside
from my taste in food, and my relative intolerance for cold water
at the beach.
I'm an ISFJ, with extroverted tendencies in the right situations
and environments. Also not a pushover, and can handle most
criticism and weirdness that comes my way.
I am witty, genuine, and random
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working as an A/V Tech for Resorts World Casino in
Queens, doing live sound and other assorted tech work. Eventually,
I hope to teach music/recording arts at the university level, work
in film/tv/video game production, and/or be the sound engineer for
a major venue or theater. I'm hoping that, if I play my cards
right, I can achieve at least one of these in the next five
I have a Bachelors of Music in Double Bass Performance and a minor
in Jazz Studies from Christopher Newport University. I'm currently
finishing my Master of Music in Music Technology at NYU.
I'm also trying my hand at being a video game streamer. I like
having a legitimate reason to play games regularly!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
, video post-production, computers,
photography, random/useless trivia. I plan my spontaneity.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...or so people tell me, my eyes. They're hazel/green in the colder
months, and bright green in the warmer months.
I have somewhat of a goofy laugh. It was described to me once as
"...the most simultaneously genuine and fake belly laugh ever."

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, typically. 'Tis part and parcel of the audio industry.
Though, if I'm not working, you can typically find me watching my
favorite streamers on Twitch.tv, on Netflix, working on my own
music projects, or having a beverage with friends.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a girl who reads:
To paraphrase a bit from the writer Sarah Jones (and because I very
much agree): I want a woman who is smart, strong, and is their own
person - who has dignity and won't give it all away. I want a woman
who values self-containment, self-reliance, and self-empowerment.
Beyond the physical, THIS is what I consider sexy.
I'm also looking for someone who knows where they're going in life
and how to get there (if you aren't already there), who doesn't
play games, and has a great sense of humor. If you are caring,
compassionate, non-judgmental, geeky/nerdy (a big plus, but not
required), and looking to be with someone who is also trying to
make sense of this crazy world we live in, while doing so with a
big heart and an open mind, you're just the person I'd love to get
If you are a person who can think of nothing better to do on a day
off than to sit at the beach, play guitar, and hang out with your
