Hey! My name is Alex! I'm new to SF and looking to meet new people,
to go out with and have as much fun as is humanly possible! I am a
musician by trade and am also looking for singer/songwriters
interested in collaboration!
update 10/21/2013 - I stink at this online dating thing so I'm
mainly leaving this up to look for musicians for collaboration and
joining my new band. That being said if ya wanna grab a drink I'm
always down! cheers!
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from college last year and moved to SF a little over
four months ago. I am working in IT for a really cool company right
now and have started up a new band. I'm a guitarist, bassist,
ukuleleist (basically anything fretted), keyboardist, singer, and
songwriter (I consider songwriting to be my primary instrument). As
of now my band is just me and a drummer so I'm looking for a whole
slew of new members (guitar/bassists, keyboardists, and female and
male singers) as I generally like to have a five piece band... I am
also actively producing an album I wrote and recorded with my
college band the DOTS.
Other than that I'm just trying to have as much fun as possible
with my life. To achieve this goal I'm going out dancing, seeing
shows, and exploring this awesome city as often as I can and
looking for people to join me and my shenanigans.
I’m really good at
A whole slew of different things! Most of which involve music in
some form. Although you should see me dance!
The first things people usually notice about me
Definitely my smile: my gargantuan, goofy-ass, giggly, sweet smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just started MaddAddam, the third book in Margaret Atwood's Oryx
and Crake series! On the whole I love fiction - there's nothing
like reading a good story. I am of course open to almost anything
as long as it's well written, non-fiction included. Marquez and
Calvino are some of my favorites but I do love a good dystopia
every now and then.
My taste in music is insanely broad. I know that saying you like
everything conveys no information but it's true for me - there is
stuff I like in almost every genre ever made and I'm always open to
new sounds and new music. My own writing is usually for ensembles
of male/female vox with tight harmonies, guitar (electric and
acoustic), bass, drums, and fun keys/synth parts. The bands I've
been digging most recently are Mother Mother and the Kopecky Family
Band. I love to talk music and hear new stuff so that's really the
best way to figure out my tastes.
I love Wes Anderson movies and am also trying catch up on all of
the classics that I've missed out on. Don't always have enough time
to watch a movie but I love a good movie night every now and again.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out at a show, either as a spectator or a performer! I love live
music and the scene out here in SF is amazing. I'm having a blast
hearing all this new music and haven't seen a bad show yet.
You should message me if
You think I'm cute and you love yourself. Also definitely message
me if you're at all creative, regardless of whether or not you're
looking to date; I love collaborating and creating new projects in
all mediums. more than anything I'm looking for people that inspire
me and whom I inspire.
Or hit me up if you just wanna grab a drink and get to know me! I'm
