My self-summary
I am equal parts Dante Hicks and Peter Gibbons.

Really, though, I'm just a guy in my late twenties looking to move onto the next phase of life, wherever that might take me.

I can also be a rather snarky, cynical bastard (with a hopelessly romantic side) with a sense of humor that ranges from the deadpan to the dark to the simply absurd. A few biographical notes:

* I was born and raised in Redding, a city where old folks go to retire and young people go to start families.
* I spent three years in Chico after high school--two unsuccessful years at Chico State followed by a year of living in a punk house. (During my time at Chico State, I was also a DJ at campus radio station KCSC, an experience I continue to miss immensely.)
* I finally returned to school in 2007--first to finish up my GE at Shasta College, then to SF State in 2009, from which I graduated with a BA in Sociology in 2011. (During my time at SF State, I was also involved somewhat in organizing against budget cuts to education and participated in a few student coalitions which never quite got off the ground for various reasons.)
* I moved to Oakland in June of 2012 after deciding that life in SF was just too damn expensive.

I love to nerd out on matters both musical (subcultures, oral histories, the process of recording and production) and technological (Linux, FOSS, retro-computing, vintage hi-fi) in my spare time. I'm the kind of guy that will use a computer in order to use a computer.

That's most of it; now here's the rest of it.
What I’m doing with my life
I've got a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, yet I work as a produce clerk at a grocery store in San Francisco. Go figure.
I’m really good at
Pushing my luck and making poor life choices. But in all seriousness, I really don't know..... writing, perhaps?
The first things people usually notice about me
Definitely the bags under my eyes. And my height. And the deceptively angry look on my face. Other than that, I'm not too sure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Favorite band of all time is The Beatles, with Bad Religion a close second. I'm mostly into punk, hardcore, jazz, country (think Wayne Hancock), metal, hip-hop, folk, and ska.

I'll occasionally listen to the radio, but when I do, it's usually KPFA or a Giants game on KNBR.

Books: Non-fiction, mostly; politics, political theory, history, and music/pop-culture.

Movies: I know it sounds weird, but I prefer documentaries to actual movies. There's just so much to learn and so little time to learn it! My favorite movie of all time, though, is a tie between The Shawshank Redemption and The Godfather, Part II.

Television: I find it to be a tremendous waste of time.

Food: Meat and potatoes. No avocados, though. Or mushrooms. FUCK NO NOT MUSHROOMS. UGH.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee.
Burritos.
My computer (let's be honest here).
My record collection.
Family.
Friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Making ends meet. Finding a different job and where that might be. Past mistakes and lessons learned. Where I'm gonna be and what I'm gonna be doing when I hit 30. The politics of music and the sociology of countercultures. Potential weekend road trips. "I bet this sounds killer on vinyl," when I hear one of my favorite records that I don't yet own on wax.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not at work, you can find me at a show, or at home relaxing, cooking dinner for myself, and listening to records (yes, I mean actual records); or, trying (and usually failing) to compile software from source code while I waste time watching documentaries on YouTube or Netflix. Did I mention I was kind of a nerd?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I feel like I was born fifteen years late. I guess that explains my fondness for bands like Huey Lewis & the News.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 23–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If I strike your fancy, you live in or near Oakland, Berkeley or SF (a must), and you wanna go on a date.
