My self-summary
Originally from Austin I have lived in NYC for 10 years and love it! Before that Texas, Mexico, California, Georgia and Spain (a country I am more than slightly obsessed with...and would love to live in one day).

Me...positive, educated, driven, creative, active, funny, high energy, compassionate, successful, athletic, curious, bright, maybe not in that order...

I have an amazing career and run a small Indie music label on the side.

I have traveled all over the World...up to 54 countries and counting...would love to see every one before it is all said and done...
What I’m doing with my life
On an every day basis I slave it out to Corporate America in finance...

Also, play in a band (guitar and vocals), travel the World, and lately... redoing a townhouse, running a music label...

On the more active side.. riding bikes early morning through the deep burroughs, learning to surf again (definitely not like a bike you do forget!), yoga, training for Marathon, ran ING NYC last year - (brutal, but surreal)...
I’m really good at
writing horrible profiles
remembering obscure facts
navigating without a map...(no I am not too proud to ask for directions!)
playing guitar - "Stairway" anyone?
forgetting peoples names 1 second after I meet them, but never a face.
always seeming to get behind tourists on the sidewalk three/four wide...move it Iowa!
making mix tapes...or cds...or is that just ipod shuffle now?
skateboarding in the wee hours through NYC
scrabble
remembering everything I need at the grocery store the moment I get home...

traveling
rolling my own sushi

The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes, height, energy, intellect...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music is a huge part of my life! I go to multiple shows a week...I think my friends feel I maintain a somewhat unhealthy obsession with music, which often dictates where and when I travel...in the last year I have hit Coachella, Austin City Limits, and Lollapalooza...Ibiza Rocks anyone?

Favorite music changes daily, but as long as it is good...I am in!

Prefer Indie, Classic Rock, Electronica, Classical, Blues, Jazz, Punk, Dance, Rock, etc...I have too many ipods and constantly shuffle and reload them randomly...always trying to put something new on them.

Does it only count as six if I keep them in a line?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is the grass always greener on the other-side...technology and how amazing it is to interview digitally literally thousands of people just to find the one...does it make us all picky unrealistic snobs?

Lately I have thought about this a lot though...

5 years ago I was walking across the Galata Bridge in Istanbul, Turkey. I ran across a very strangely dressed old Englishman selling flowers from the back of his bike at the center of the bridge. The man insisted I buy a flower and listen to some of his stories, which I obliged.

As we spoke he told me fantastical tales of riding his bike through Asia, India, Europe, and Africa for 30 years, and of all the wonderful people and crazy characters he encountered. I was totally convinced most of them were complete lies until he spoke of meeting his wife...
He said he was working on a shrimping boat in the Indian Ocean. One day a beautiful German girl hitched a ride to an island off the main island of Indonesia. She spoke almost no English and was dirty from months of travel, but he fell “instantaneously in love with her". A girl, who although he had just met and with whom he could barely communicate with, "immediately became the most interesting and amazing person he had ever met". This, from a 25 year old Londoner biking across the World and currently working on a shrimp boat off of Indonesia. He teared-up describing her... her passion and insatiable lust for life changed him “in a moment…forever”. He clearly loved her and she had obviously died recently, although he didn’t say that specifically.

He didn't say much after he spoke of her and just refelcted for a moment. So, I thought we were done and started to walk away when he threw out his parting words "Life is short, fall in love, and surround yourself with interesting amazing people. And, remember...a person with no interests is a person of no interest, don't waste your time or your life".

I really couldn't have said it better myself.

So, I clocked him over the head and made off with his bike, flowers, and anything I could get from his pockets. Haha! Kidding!

I was actually very happy I met that man. As I thought about it days, weeks, months, now years after - he gave me more than he intended to, or maybe exactly what he intended to...
Although, his stories were great I thought more about his wife and the impact she had on him.
I am not exactly sure what I am looking for from this site - my life is great and I am beyond happy...but it would be cool to find someone that 40 years later we feel compelled to tell a complete stranger all about on a bridge in the middle of nowhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am on okcupid and none of my friends will ever hear that from me...
