I'm a creative artist, a computer scientist, and a business minded entrepreneur all mashed into one. I have a degree in music composition, but have spent the last 9 years working in the Information Technology field. In July I left my IT job to pursue a handful of business ventures with a close friend in Charleston.
So why am I here? I'm looking to meet cool new people and see what happens. I'm also an incredibly driven individual and admittedly somewhat of a workaholic, so meeting others online can be convenient at times.
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've decided to stop living the safe, stable, and boring life I was living before. The most successful people in history didn't allow society to hold them back. 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 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.
My pursuits include:
-3d modeling and sculpting for animation (think Pixar)
-Creating online training courses for Information Technology
-Learning software development
-Photography (specifically to create HDR environments)
-Building electric guitars
-Drinking craft beer
-Exploring the world
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 was a music student in college so this is an important category. I'll only name a few at the top of my list lately:
Dead Letter Circus
A Perfect Circle
Alice in Chains
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 comfort food, etc.
I really love craft beer. Breweries I like:
IPA's are my jam.
I drink way too much coffee.
-A creative pursuit (This is seriously part of my DNA)
-Books (I learn things from paper and ink too)
-Stories (these are at the very core of human nature)
-Music (Important enough to get a Bachelors degree in music composition)
I chose five things. I do what I want.
-Why humans haven't been to Mars yet.
-Cadbury Cream Eggs.
-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. This is a place for discussions, not interviews.
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.
