So why am I here? I stay busy working full time and I'm in the process of starting a custom guitar building business. I'm also investigating the possibility of getting a Master's Degree. So while time is in short supply, I still make time for others.
That said, even if I wasn't busy, the opportunity to meet new people you may never encounter in day to day life fascinates me. Life before the internet was a very different thing.
I feel like living your life without fear and limitations is the most important thing that anybody can do. The most successful people in history didn't allow society to hold them back. I would imagine the same could be said for the happiest people in history. I've seen far too many people give up on their hopes and dreams only to try to pass them along to their children. I'm not that type of person.
I often have lofty goals, but why bother otherwise?
I'm a laid back person that loves an occasional dose of chaos. I love good stories, because without them the world would be a pretty dull place. I like nature and the outdoors and would generally be more happy if winter didn't exist....though snow is cool on occasion. I really miss snow days.
Anyway, when work isn't busy getting in the way of my hobbies I:
-Build guitars (I play guitar as well)
-Model/Texture/Animate in 3d
-Make High Dynamic Range photos
-Build machines that help me build guitars
I'm also learning storytelling.
There is far more, but a text box will never sum up a person's life very well. What would be the fun in me telling you everything anyway?
Chances are I'm more than capable of fixing your computer problems though.
Movies: Memento (pretty much everything Christopher Nolan is involved with). Radio, The Matrix, Seven Pounds, Ratatouille (everything Pixar).
TV: LOST, Supernatural, The Mentalist, Paranormal Witness. I tend to favor mind bending stuff. I like family guy and south park though.
Comedy: Ralphie May, Dave Chappelle, Daniel Tosh
Music: I went to school for music composition. My list is somewhat long, but I'll name a few at the top of my list lately:
Hidden Orchestra, Dead Letter Circus, Floex, A Perfect Circle, Machine Head, Alice in Chains, Pink Floyd.
I generally think all food should be spicy....
Thai food is my favorite. But I love so many different types of food: Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Southern food (Thelma's Chicken and Waffles...you know if you've been there), etc.
I really love craft beer. Breweries I like: Lagunitas, Sweetwater, Abita, Troegs, Dogfish Head, Saranac, and basically everything else that's nearly impossible to find in Virginia.
Lately I've been diving progressively deeper into the rabbit hole that is coffee.
....I guess specificity didn't make the list, did it?
-Why we haven't been to Mars yet, or even sent a probe to Europa.
-Cadbury Cream Eggs.
In reality I've been reading a lot about the nature of human consciousness and how technology is changing the course of humanity.
-You can't remember the last time you were "bored".
-You're a creative person. (This really isn't essential, but it's nice to meet like minded people)
-You understand how conversations work....seriously, I'm not interested in interviewing you.
For that matter, if you consider yourself an interesting person and are passionate about something...anything. If you have drive and motivation, I really respect that.
