Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a native New Yorker, born and raised in Queens.
I've always been in the arts. First I wanted to be a photographer
and went to a great art school but soon realized music was my
calling and have not looked back since.
I'm pretty laid back, almost to a fault according to some, but I'm
also perhaps a bit sarcastic and a tad cynical at times (but always
try to find the humor in it all).
I like the usual stuff I guess.....field trips out of New York for
the day, good food, museums, films, and long walks to discover
little secret parts of New York you didn't know existed
I'm well traveled (I tour a few times a year) and think I have a
more worldly view than most. I try to be a good person, balanced,
try to see things from both sides. I'm told I'm reasonably
intelligent and have a sense of humor though perhaps it's a bit
abstract or off beat.
Though I'm wearing a suit in my photos (which I do for certain
photo shoots and gigs), I rarely do this outside of performing and
though I'm happy to play dress up for someone for certain
occasions, I'm not a suit guy at all. I don't want to misrepresent
myself or more importantly give the wrong impression to the type of
woman I would like to attract. I'm trying to find a decent real
life photo but can't seem to find one yet.
In the long run, I guess I'm looking for a serious, long term
monogamous relationship at this point in life but I'm open to other
possibilities until that happens, if that happens. I've certainly
experienced all sorts of relationships in my life and have found
them all rewarding in some way.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a musician. I have a fairly successful career. I tour a bit and
have a few CDs out and I'm pretty serious about it all. I don't
consider myself a typical (or stereotypical) musician though. I'm
not a flake as I'm a bandleader and you need somewhat of a level
head to do that with any sort of success. Perhaps I'm a combination
of both. I do have other interests though and do find the time to
pursue them though I usually like company for that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Most things when I put my mind to it though I really don't put my
mind to that many things....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I need to be more general
Movies: Kubrick, Tarkovsky, Polanski, Herzog, Godard, Pasolini,
Tsai Ming Liang, Sturges
'70s films like Taxi Driver, Chinatown and Network.
Yes, even though it doesn't matter in the long run, I will like you
a little more if you listed Harold and Maude in your profile though
I'm beginning to suspect some are listing it just to trigger this
sort of emotion and it's not a favorite movie of theirs.
I seem to have developed a weakness for HBO shows especially The
Music: Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, James Brown, Sly Stone
Books: Robertson Davies, Don DeLillo, Steve Erickson
Food: Italian, Thai, Japanese, Indian
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Lots of music related things I guess and some things I'd rather not
like to admit to like my lap top though I'm still pretty convinced
I could do without it.
Water is pretty important I guess.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Music and how to fix the world
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
