To put it succinctly within the confines of a cheesy catch phrase,
I am a guy looking to expand my horizons. I am a people person
(though very much independent), and am looking for some fresh faces
and voices. I have been living in Portland for 4 years, and very
much want to meet new, interesting people as friends, and if the
opportunity presents itself, perhaps more.
What I’m doing with my life
I once had a college professor tell me that I would never be
satisfied with my professional career, and I am beginning to
believe her more and more. I can't seem to find my niche in the
world, which both frustrates me and enlightens me. I would love to
pursue music, explore the world, and meet fascinating people, and
in the meantime, the company of good friends keeps me happy.
I’m really good at
Writing, analyzing and discussing music, debating
The first things people usually notice about me
Is my humor. I can go from being absurdly silly, to more high brow
with my humor and if the situation comes up, I can turn on my
serious conversation self.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Whatever I'm currently reading:
Heavy Metal Islam
The Free World
Three Cups of Tea
Yeah, I read more than one book at once. Keeps things spicy! Is
that the word I was looking for?
Music - I'm a metal head at heart that can recite an endless list
of bands I love. If you're a fan, let me know, we can chat, that
would probably make things easier! I have been trying to expand my
mind with other music though, particularly indie and electronica.
Some select choices include The Apache Relay, Justice, Niki &
The Dove, Gotye, Mystery Jets, M83, and Family of the Year.
I can talk for hours about music\ of pretty much any genre, I find
it all fascinating.
Food - My mom's beef straganoff, apple crisp, spaghetti and
meatballs, any kind of Indian food
The six things I could never do without
Music, Good Food, Friends, Family, Humor, News
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life and all it's complexities.
On a typical Friday night I am
Socializing with friends in some favorable atmosphere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a bit afraid of my success.
You should message me if
You wanna chat about anything and everything. Pursuing something
else would be cool, but that is not necessary to having a good
conversation. Besides, if you can't talk to your significant other,
what good are they?
