My self-summary
I'm a 33 year old male who works like crazy and is unlucky in love. In my chosen profession, there isn't a lot of time for outside social interaction. Originally I joined this site just to find friends, but I'm ready to get out there and meet someone great. I'm tired of the bar scene. It doesn't work, seriously.
What I’m doing with my life
After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta with a Bachelor of Arts in Audio Production. I took a job working for CBS Radio doing sound design and audio production for DaveFM, V103(no I can't introduce you to Snoop Dogg), and WAOK News/Talk. I've been there for five years and it definitely has it's ups and downs. I also do freelance writing work for a few companies as well as some freelance commercial production. Need a Preparation H or Summer's Eve commercial produced from start to finish? You've come to the right place.

Lately I've been going to the gym a lot. These guns aren't going to sculpt themselves.
I’m really good at
I believe that one of my strengths is making other people feel better around me. People have told me that I should've gone into Psychology, as I always seem to have the right advice for everyone. Now only if I took my own advice....

Another strong quality I have is that I'm a born leader. I've made a lot of friends, and I'm typically the "leader of the pack" in my social circle. People genuinely seem to like me, and like being around me. The only problem is that lately all of the ladies seem to want to be my best friend. Perhaps I should change my name to Token.

I'm also an excellent listener. I like to talk as much as the next guy, but I'm not one of those people who will pretend to listen to you.

I'm well-educated, well-mannered, and I've got a great dry sense of humor. Make fun of me, and I'll laugh right along with you. Be original though. I already know most of the good jokes about myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height (6'3), eyes, or the fact that I'm trapped in the 90s and still rock Doc Martens.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(A) So many books, I'm gonna have to come back to this one later....right now I'm reading Unbreakable.

(B) Edward Scissorhands, Pan's Labyrinth, Braveheart, Purple Rain, Grindhouse, Kill Bill (Volume 2 was disappointing), Atonement, Sin City, Gladiator, There Will Be Blood, Zombieland, Batman, Gangs of New York, Sweeney Todd (the movie AND the broadway production), Super, Back to the Future, cheesy slasher films, Pirates of the Caribbean series (2 and 4 weren't so great though), Machete, Will Ferrell-esque comedies.

For TV shows its currently all about Game of Thrones and Penny Dreadful. I'm also a fan of Hannibal but it's over for this season.

(C) This could go on forever: NIN, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Tori Amos, Bjork, The Birthday Massacre, Placebo, The Cure, Stabbing Westward, She Wants Revenge, Marilyn Manson, David Bowie, Collide, 8mm, Tangerine Dream, VAST, Emilie Autumn, Ours, Jimmy Gnecco, In This Moment, Agnes Milewski, St. Vincent, Interpol, Muse, Melissa Auf Der Maur, and other alt-rock, indie, and hard rock bands. I'm also a huge fan of cinema music and scores for multimedia (television, video games, interactive media, etc.) You'll have to message me for that list because it's huge.

(D) Italian, Mexican, pretty much all Asian cuisine. I've been eating a lot of hummus lately, but my co-workers all think it's gross. My boss eats Great Wraps on a daily basis, and might I add this particular Great Wraps got a 74 on their last health inspection. I think that's a lot more disgusting than some ground up chick peas.
The six things I could never do without
Friends
Music
Sound
Pen and Paper
Guitar
Good movies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why someone would pay $16.50 to go see a movie in 3D. It completely ruins the cinematic adventure. Personally, I can't even see what's going on with wearing those cheap-ass goggles that the theater provides.
On a typical Friday night I am
either working late or out with friends at a bar or a show. Sometimes I like to come home, take a shower, watch some TV, and save going out for Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm disgusted by most large insects. Yep, it's true. I also spend time at work taking corporate memos and re-writing them as dirty madlibs for my co-workers. Not really private, I know, but my boss probably wouldn't appreciate knowing about it.
You should message me if
You've gotten this far and you like what you see. A few caveats:

-I don't know how to say this without sounding awful, but here it is: If you're transgendered, please don't message me. I have mad respect for what you've been through but I'm not interested in dating. There's someone out there for you, but it's just not my thing.

-Religion: I was born Catholic but I don't really practice- I'm more of a "spiritual but not religious" kind of guy. If you have a problem with this we probably won't get along.

-I like going to dive bars and have drinks as much as the next dude, but I'm a bit long in the tooth for the daily-drunk routine. If this is your MO, we probably won't be good for each other.

Now that we've got that out of the way, I hope you'll message me if you like what you've read!
