Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**on tour all summer and fall, working with some bands. **
A genuine, honest, empathetic, music-obsessed guy who loves new
experiences and learning new things. I'm one of the most dynamic
people you'll ever meet with a really wide range of
I grew up in New York, so I'm very blunt, outspoken, opinionated
and not afraid to speak my mind. And I have an accent. :)
My favorite thing in the entire world is live music shows. I've
been fortunate to see many, many concerts. Probably a few thousand.
Name an artist, I've probably worked for them.
I am all about collecting experiences and memories. Not photographs
Those are a few things that come to mind,
The rest I'll let you figure out...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'll save the fun details for conversations that are in-person. But
just like everyone else on okcupid, I love traveling (Thailand;
France; Amsterdam; Israel, Bolivia, Brazil, and more); I've got a
few degrees in random things that interest me (sociology,
journalism, music, psychology,); and I've worked some pretty
interesting jobs (forensic psychologist dorking in jail; social
worker; crisis counselor; merchandise person for bands in the music
scene; tour manager, and a few more)
Currently I've been touring with bands. In April 2014 I decided to
take a break from psychology to see how well I could do focusing on
music. In 8 months I went to 35 states and South America while
working for bands. It has been an unbelievable year. Very
** update - as of September 2015, I've done 3 laps around the
country, South America and Canada. And I have two more tours lined
I went from doing the merchandise for tours to now being the tour
manager. Very fun transition. Managing bands I grew up listening to
is very surreal.
I have a thirst for new experiences and adventures. I love to learn
new things and see as much as possible.
I want to have a bunch of mini-lives within this one
Forrest Gump style. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

and being honest of my weaknesses
Living on a tour bus for months.
Making a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich in the morning
Plotting out before hand, and exploring a city within a day.
Making eye contact and smiling with strangers
Listening and being empathetic
Being myself despite the environment or context.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm the only person I've met so far, that is the combination of my
two particular ethnicities.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - More non-fiction than fiction. Lately I've been reading
Movies - I enjoy movies that make you think as opposed to ones
designed to dazzle.
Shows - I don't watch much tv anymore, but I keep up with The
Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Hannibal, Bates Motel, Gotham, and
most BBC documentaries.
Music - music is my favorite part of life. I hate when people say,
"I listen to everything.". It sounds like a cop out. But I have to
be honest...I listen to everything. I like talented
musicians..despite the genre, if you know how to play your
instrument, you've likely won me over. Having worked in the music
scene for years, I've had the chance to see literally thousands of
shows, and I've met most artists\bands I've ever listened to. Music
is my favorite part of life.
Food - I'm mainly a carnivore. I enjoy trying new foods. I cooked
bacon wrapped filet mignon for the first time the other night. It
was really good. :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Things to assess \ figure out
Being able to travel \ be in nature
Sunny days at outdoor festivals
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How things work.
How people work.
And in the back of my mind, there is always the awareness that
we're these animated blobs of matter, living on a planet that's
soaring through space, in one of billions of galaxies. It helps me
put things in perspective, and realize my tininess in the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working some concert venue in the Bay area.
Maybe on tour
