Living in Brooklyn and working in Manhattan. Thank god for the N train. I go to indie concerts and if the band is good I will buy their vinyl. I own a wii and ps4. I eat cereal in the middle of the night. Back To The Future started an obsession with scifi comedies. I do not have cable but subscribe to Hulu and Netflix. I love strong coffee and it is espresso. (Expresso is the spanish version of a female clothing chain in a mall.) I have no preference over macs or pcs. My job requires me to know both inside and out. I do prefer android over iphone. I just do not understand why you would want to pay for free apps? I have been wearing converse since the 90s and probably always will. Love to joke/laugh and will only be serious when necessary. (Please note that sometimes I do need to be told when it is necessary.) I grew up in upstate NY where I lived in a town with no sidewalks, split wood with my dad on the weekends, and helped build the house I spent my teen years in.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a Lead Video Specialist for a media distribution company. Basically I play with codecs and order other people to play with codecs. I hope you know what a codec is...
I work the 6pm - 3am shift so swipe left if you are not a night owl. I do not plan on doing it forever but it is my current situation and will help further my career. Midtown is surprisingly peaceful and well lit at 3am. It is nice at times but it can be lonely.
I’m really good at
Problem solving/multi-tasking. I am the go to guy at work for every tech question under the sun. When I sign in to my work email I usually have about 200 emails. I spend my first hour just going through them all, figuring out what has been dealt with and who is still waiting for solutions/answers. It sounds like a lot but the number has slowly grown over time and I have just adjusted to it. I can also play guitar and have written music for student/indie films.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea. In winter, my beard/face scruff. Summer... my face? If I am naked and facing them... my merkin. Facing away... my vestigial tail. I know I know, the urge to message this sexy creature is overwhelming.

The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Nonsense. I really think way too much for my own good. Its a double edged sword (2d 8)
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends. Sometimes I have to catch up on work because of a deadline. Relaxing at home while watching cartoons, playing music/records or at a concert. Burying hookers in a desert or a dessert (how else are you gonna make red velvet cake red?) Hipster watching. (That's when you guess if that scrungy looking dude is a hipster, pedophile, homeless or a combination)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It was college.... it was only experimenting.
You should message me if
If you want to hear some amazingly creepy one-liners that you could never use at a bar. Something like:
"Those pants look good on you... they'd look even better in an evidence bag"
Or maybe some disturbing women/coffee metaphors like:
"I like my women like I like my coffee, finely ground and in a bag..... guatemalan and fair trade.... actually I'm more of a tea guy "
