My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First things first, I've wanted to go on a picnic date for a while now. Or to the zoo. If this sounds like something you're interested in, you need to message me ASAP.

I'm completely obsessed saxophonist/musician with nerdy qualities. I've lived most of my life in Oregon and recently moved to Portland after finishing up school. I like to go on walks whilst drinking tea, I like it when it rains, I love bike riding through the city, I enjoy listening to eclectic music and enjoy a long, in depth conversation every now and again. I recently discovered the joys of Karaoke. I have an adorable sister who pretty much understands me better than anyone and I love her.

My Meyers-Briggs personality profile is an INFJ. Read more about it here: I'm an introvert, extremely intuitive, private, and I have a very personalized sense of morality.  This doesn't mean that I'm shy.  Quite the opposite, I'm very friendly and love being social with people I feel like I can have a meaningful connection with.  I just need quite a bit of alone time. Feel free to ask me more about it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've figured out what I want to do with my life. I'm currently on the journey of figuring out how to do it: how to become a better musician, how to be a better educator. Basically I give students music lessons and am in the process of trying to set up some more music gigs.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
We'll assume for the moment that I'm fantastic at my musical endeavors. I'm a fine cook and am frequently experimenting with ways to make the dishes I already make taste even better. I'm a great raconteur and love a good one-on-one conversation. I'm a patient teacher and love to explain how to do something in detail to someone who asks my advice. I'm a great listener and love to be able to talk to someone and help them figure out a solution to any problems they may be having. I like making cocktails, my current favorite is the green Russian.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order of importance . . .

1. My saxophone, take the damn thing everywhere.
2. Tea/another caffeine delivery system. I've discovered lately I'm addicted and I'll get headaches if I go more than a day without.
3. Food. We all need that right? I prefer mine well-seasoned.
4. A good friend that understands me. You'd be surprised how hard those are to come by.
5. Some device to play music with. Computer, Ipod, record player, CD player, decent stereo set up. I currently have all these things.
6. A place to kick back and relax when I need to think.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My current goals in life and how to reach them. I'm never satisfied with where I'm at in life. I'd say more but I'd spend the next four hours writing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm out with friends I'm probably getting my ass handed to me at pool by my Parisian neighbor. That bastard.

If I'm not being social I'm probably practicing.
