My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a saxophonist and music professor. Pulling off a career in music certainly comes with its sacrifices. For instance, you end up spending a lot of time listening to music as opposed to reading. Encouraging, I know. But I still consider myself fairly well-rounded.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach jazz studies and music theory and try to play out as much as I can. I play in a good local salsa band and in a classical saxophone quartet that does higher profile gigs from time to time. I also play in different incarnations of a jazz combo. This summer I'm just trying to work on writing new material (composing). Going back and forth between Pittsburgh and here for some gigs too.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Depends on your definition of really good. I am extremely talented at boggle (ie. writing words forwards and backwards). I like tennis (ntrp 5.0!).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The guns. No, I'm not sure, maybe my hair. Or maybe that I already have them figured out? No, that was totally random.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Lynch, Kubrick, Goddard, Bunuel, Almodovar, Ben Stiller, Haneke, but I still need to see The Piano Teacher; Deuce Bigelow, European Gigolo (one of those rare cases where the sequel is better than the original!); Jaws, Rocky IV; Point Break is a true classic. Mullholand Drive, A Clockwork Orange, the Shining is solid, love Cronenberg's early stuff, all of it, especially Existenz, but not so much his more recent movies, although A Dangerous Method is great; Mo Betta Blues and Do the Right Thing. Possibly my all time favorite is Belle de Jour. I know I may seem like a total weirdo coming out and saying that, but there you have it. Made in USA (Goddard) is also an incredible film. I used to check out more herzog stuff. Abbas kierastomi. Takashi Miike.

Books: Camus, Burroughs, Henry Miller, Karouac, Kurt Vonnegut, Flannery O'Connor. The Trial, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Invisible Man, Crime and Punishment. Not much contemporary stuff, I guess. Lately, I've been attempting to read poetry from time to time. It's been an excellent exercise in posturing.

Comedians: George Carlin, Sarah Silverman, Chris Elliot. David Cross is my all time favorite (although I will admit that he's kind of an asshole).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Pan flutes; my entire apartment is just draped from floor to ceiling with rare, collectible pan flutes; hoping to someday summon the spirit of the man-goat himself. Maybe even take a lesson...

2.Gerardo. Gerardo is very important to me because he is frequently my answer to people's rhetorical questions. Sample rhetorical question: "Who on earth would say something like that?" My unsolicited answer: "Gerardo would". Doesn't tend to go over well with sensitive subjects.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Quantum mechanics, just all day long; for sure. And when i come to conclusions, I say "whooooaa" out loud; like a nervous frat boy at a phish concert when Trey uses that weird loop effect. So either that or Post-structuralism, more during the evenings.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Making some puff pastries, putting on a good movie...and then gently crying myself to sleep.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am no longer allowed to vote. Message me to find out why!!

(That's a joke, btw)...
