My self-summary
-Midwest guy who’s lived in Cambridge for 10+ years, came here for school and stayed once I established a career. I’d like to end up in Chicago at some point in the future but I’m not in any rush and may make a few stops prior to that.

-I went to school for music, I play electric bass, guitar, a bit of keyboards and currently am taking voice lessons. My degree says I am a “Professional Musician” so I decided against profiting from the vast money tree that is being a musician and formed a career in another field.

-I work out 6 days a week, and eat a very strict training diet.

-I played hockey for 10 years of my life and it’s the only sport I still watch or care about. I am a Chicago Blackhawks fan, sorry Bs fans.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a career in internet security, I spend my work days mitigating attacks against websites you may or may not use everyday.
I’m really good at
I enjoy playing guitar/music, lately I’ve been trying to write more music. I think it’s safe to say I have an aptitude for computing as I have no formal education/training and keep getting more and more technical jobs. I enjoy the command line and writing AppleScript applications. I recently got into speed running retro games, probably something I shouldn't admit when trying to attract a lady…
The first things people usually notice about me
Hand tattoos…?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books- a mix of autobiographies, technology books, random collections of short stories.

Movies- American Psycho (not the book, too many details), Zombieland, Donnie Darko, War Games, Slapshot, Silent Movie, Dumb and Dumber, Caddyshack, Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Old School, Zoolander, Control. I like comedies, docudramas, sometimes horror movies (not torture porn crap) and documentaries.

TV- American Dad, South Park, Freaks and Geeks, Malcolm in the Middle, Tosh.0, Finding Bigfoot, Monsterquest. I kind of like cryptozoology like a lot. We got game center this year for NHL so I can finally watch all of my Blackhawks games that is awesome.

Food- "clean". I have one cheat meal a week so help me cheat.
The six things I could never do without
guitar, a computer, my iPhone- after that I am good.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much better my life would be if I just embraced the inner Roger (the alien from American Dad!) and just went with it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally resting to train the next day but I’d like to be a bit more exciting so help me get out of the house!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am have a few OCD rituals but nothing overly apparent, just more organizational things.
You should message me if
A few things to know about me:

-My recent pics are self taken, not self absorbed I just don't look like I used to and I'd rather not start something on a false pretense. When you're in a gigging band your picture is taken all of the time. When you work on the internet well, you're on Reddit a lot.

-I prefer for things to evolve naturally, so if we date casually and then it forms into something awesome! I once got together with a few folks to play music and one of them wanted to know after the first time playing together if we could call it a band…

-Sometimes I suck at getting back to folks on here, nothing personal I just have been really overwhelmed as of late, career moves and personal life stuff. Somehow when the dust settled I was the most stable one of my friends, totally odd.

Still here? Cool:

-I am attracted to people and not attributes, so if you have a sense of humor and are comfortable with yourself let’s talk.

-I am not opposed to casual dating or monogamous relationships, but I don’t have any interest in poly folks. Not my scene, not judging just not my thing.

-I am getting less patient with the long building messaging on here- I’d rather just grab a drink one night and see if there are any sparks.

-I don’t play games and am straightforward, it would be awesome if you were as well!
