My self-summary
I'd rather you figure that one out for me
What I’m doing with my life
Fulfilling my passion, dream and purpose - being a jazz guitarist in New York. Playing, composing, teaching, the whole package. It's a good feeling to know what I want. Meeting people from in NY has taught me to not take that for granted.
I’m really good at
Music. Writing. Maintaining an inner balance.
The first things people usually notice about me
i'm tall. i have 3 earrings in my left ear. i'm european.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Infinite Jest, Ulysses, The Crying of Lot 49, The Book of Embraces, Straight Life, Franz Kafka, Herman Hesse, Leo Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Maxim Gorky, Daniil Kharms, Gogol, John Steinbeck, Paul Auster, Dylan Thomas, Graham Greene, Arthur Miller, Isaac Asimov, Michel Houellebecq, Milan Kundera, John Cage, Arthur Schopenhauer, Plato, Meister Eckart, Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre

Movies: everything by Kurosawa, Wong Kar Wai, Lynch, Cronenberg, Solondz, Teshigahara, Herzog, Fassbinder, Schlöndorff, von Trier

The six things I could never do without
love
music
friends
long solitary walks
curiosity
persistence
I spend a lot of time thinking about
music. complexity and simplicity. social injustice. how we create ethical norms.
why so many girls on here answer this question with 'my next meal'
On a typical Friday night I am
hopefully NOT on OkCupid.... no, seriously, i might be playing at a club. if not - hanging out at a bar with friend(s), checking out a concert, watching a movie at home...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
sometimes I feel like I change my looks too often... it might be any combination of the following: glasses, no glasses, clean shaven, beard, goatee, hair shaved short, longish hair, hat, no hat. I get "I didn't recognize you at first" way to often. Bad for a career in music ;-)

I'm the son of a catholic priest.
I was bitten by a monkey when I was 8.
I had a crush on Pippi Longstocking around the same age.
I like you.
You should message me if
you are curious and eager to share and listen.
