My self-summary
Simply put, I'm an intense lover of all things LIFE. I enjoy deep conversation, music and going out to the movies A TON. Being an intellectual is a must for me, as well as being well-spoken and well-read.

I don't drink or partake in ANY drugs, whatsoever, so if that's a deal breaker, than know this early, rather than late: it's just not for me. Now if you enjoy those things, please, indulge your senses and enjoy; life might as well be fun, I just choose to have fun in other ways.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently hold 2 part-time jobs, one at a local record store and another at a mall retail location, focusing on pop culture and music. I'm also an independent business owner and in an actively touring/playing band, booking shows in the Rochester area, with hopes to expand my practice in the future. After all THAT is said and done, I'm also working on more entries for a poetry/prose compilation due sometime Fall of 2013.

You could say I'm busy, busy, busy, but...I manage my free time extraordinarily well!
I’m really good at
Writing, singing, playing guitar, bass and drums. They're all my passions and I enjoy being multi-faceted with different talents!
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm well-spoken, musically inclined, and very passionate about what I and others enjoy. My mohawk is usually an eye-catcher.

The six things I could never do without
1. Music
2. Learning new things, always
3. Books
4. Record stores
5. A guitar
6. The ability to write
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Love, life, emotions and new literary narratives.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching movies, writing, and listening to music. Staying in doesn't always mean you're uninteresting!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Although it's cliche, you'll know more when you get to know me.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–45
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
If anything you've read intrigues you. I'd love to conversate with people that can really hold up their end of the conversation, one that goes beyond simple one dimensional discussions. (In other words, I enjoy meaningful talk)

I'm very laid back and caring, willing to give of myself.

One condition: if you message me and plan to initiate a conversation, don't waste my time and yours by not responding to what I promise will be a well-thought out, well-worded reply. Nobody appreciates a person that drops off the face of the earth within minutes of meeting. (Of course there are probably some viable excuses out there for such a happening) Gracias!
