I love music and I love playing my guitar; there's no day where I

free to ask me about them! =)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just finished my degree, so I'm back home in Basel for a few months
relaxing/getting back into shape before I start basic training in

Australia after I finish off my service.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

Music - pretty much everything. Big fan of rock/metal and
trance/electronica, and I really like classical, blues, country,

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- My guitars (four total, hoping to get a new acoustic at some

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

next few months.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Occasionally I'll be out with some old friends from high school,
otherwise I'll be at home either reading, jamming out on my guitar,
or watching Netflix/a movie.

But especially if you are a cute brunette with light colored eyes
(blue, green, grey, light brown/amber), there's a certain
je-ne-sais-quoi about that hair/eye combination that I really like.

heads. Or whatever your hair color; it really doesn't matter.
And I need new friends here in Basel because almost everyone I knew
before I left for the US has gone away, so feel free to drop me a
