I am an engineer, musician and pretty atypical. You likely won't meet anyone else quite like me. I play in a few bands and couldn't imagine my life without music. I can laugh at almost anything and I don't take myself too seriously.
Outside of the above I really can't figure out a good way to fill this part out so here's a list of unrelated facts about myself, in no particular order ... grammar be damned!:
I don't do games (emotional ones that is). That includes "hard to get." I am honest and straightforward and I expect you to be too.
I find helplessness very unattractive.
I was never officially taught the proper usage of a semicolon.
For two consecutive years my two best friends and I flew out to San Francisco almost exclusively to see a band at the Fillmore ... the same band, both years.
After a 13 year layoff, I'm taking up snowboarding again. I'm excited and also crossing my fingers that I don't break anything important. UPDATE: First outing in the books and not only am I in one piece, but riding is like riding a bike.
I want to run a marathon, hopefully in the next few years. Finding the time to train properly is becoming increasingly difficult though.
I love "obsolete" technology.
My first concert was The Rolling Stones in Philadelphia at age thirteen. That day has had a pretty huge impact on my life.
I've been playing guitar since age twelve. I've been faking piano/organ and drums since age twenty one. I come just short of musical travesty on bass and harmonica. I hope to be adequate, if not proficient, on my mediocre instruments and learn mandolin (I've already started on this one), pedal steel, banjo, and fiddle before I kick the proverbial bucket.
I want to hike Mt. Washington in the near future. Want to join me?
I'm allergic to cats and, as strange as this sounds, VERY allergic to rabbits.
I believe the saying "actions speak louder than words" is a massive understatement.
I almost exclusively wear Argyle socks (see below).
I believe that art and science are absolutely not mutually exclusive.
My only real fear is a boring existence.
I went two years without a real haircut (2009-2011).
I love learning new things.
I backpacked 50 miles of the the Long Trail in VT. It was pretty awesome.
I went to Scotland in August of '13. I was scheming my return trip before I even got home.
