My self-summary
My name's Dan. Generally I would describe myself as a bit of a a nerd/geek. I'm into science, technology, computers, math, etc.

I'm very good with all sorts of technical and mechanical things. I am a DIY junkie. I’m that person that goes out and buys the parts to make something rather than just buying the finished product to save a few bucks. I always have a few "projects" I'm working on.

I'm also a musician. Music is a huge part of my life. I've been a percussionist/drummer for the last 23 years of my life. I know that whatever happens music will always be a part of my life. It's an unbelievable experience to have a hand in creating it.

Check out my list of favorite tv/books/movies for more insight into my interests.

Some other facts:

I'm a PC.

I'm an introvert.

I'm pretty sure I have a sleep disorder. Not helped by my totally totally irregular schedule. I rarely go to bed before 4 am. If you're a morning person we might have some issues...

I am a true believer in "Be Prepared". I'm good at solving problems and staying cool in a crisis.

I try to live my life by this quote from Christopher Titus: "Step up or step aside". I have no regrets. If I had the chance to go back in time and redo my past, I wouldn't.
What I’m doing with my life
Parks & Rec. irl

(Seriously, I run my town's Parks Dept.)

I have also worked as a line cook in a few restaurants. (and still have the scars to prove it) Currently I am working part time in an elementary school cafeteria during the school year. Not the most exciting job but I needed health insurance (thanks Obama)

I'm a freelance percussionist so I perform all over the place.

My Concert Schedule

I also march in parades all over New England. So far I've done more than 100.
I’m really good at
"Kitchen-hands" (being able to grab hot things and not get burned)
Computers & Technology
Fixing things
Spatial Reasoning
The first things people usually notice about me
I walk really fast. I have long hair. I've got scars on my hands and arms from working in foodservice. I drive a tank (FJ Cruiser) haha

I do the EDC thing. (Every Day Carry) aka: I have way too much crap in my pockets all the time, but if you ever need pliers, a flashlight, or a tuning fork you know who to ask. Update: lost the tuning fork :(
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Music:
Currently listening to Techno.
Recently I've really liked:
Really cool acoustic versions of 3 Turisas songs
Bastille, Ludo, more Ludo (It's a rock tango!, how awesome is that?),and Ben Folds.

At my old job we used to listen to Ludo radio and it was awesome. Or Summer Hits of the 90's. (Now at the new job we're stuck with crap pop/light rock radio..) Sorry, if you just listen to nothing but 96.1SRS or country, we might have issues....

I like rock, metal, classical, techno, basically everything except rap and country. Generally I will listen to anything though. I'm always open to new music.

One of my all-time favorite songs is "Ballet for a Girl from Buchannon" by Chicago

I'm open to suggestions...bonus points for non-standard instruments (bassoon, accordion) and songs in odd time signatures. (and more points if you know what that means).. Interestingly enough I've found a lot of great music through this site...(just wish I could find some great dates..)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work. I am a workaholic, mainly because I really enjoy my job.
My next project I'm working on. Buying a house.
I tend to do my best thinking while driving.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably working. I do my best work at 3 am.. (You know you're a night own when you have to get an app to schedule texts and emails so you can pretend you keep normal hours...) Otherwise out playing a concert or show.

I'm not a big club/party person but occasionally I'll go out to the bar with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll admit to one trashy TV obsession...Parental Control on MTV. It's totally fake but at the same time hilarious. Also Friendzone..not sure if this one is real or not..

There's probably more you could figure out based on my answers to some of the questions if you're really nosy... ;)
You should message me if
You are looking for a serious, monogamous relationship.
I'm not really looking for casual dates without the possibility of more.

You know what ASMR is and/or you experience it.

Want to come see a musical or a concert for free? (And not mind the fact that I have to be there 3 hours early...)

How about marathon all the Harry Potter movies. I've only seen the 1st and 5th and I just re-read the books.
