Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a musician and a native New Yorker. I grew up on Long Island,
did my undergrad in Burlington (UVM), my grad work in Queens and I
now live in Bushwick. I listen to a lot of KEXP, WFUV, WNYE and
WNYC (I haven't lived with a television since high school). I can't
spell to save my life (I will often use synonyms when writing by
hand to prevent embarrassment). I pride myself on how many
hole-in-the-wall spots I know in the city where you can eat
incredible food for less then 5 bucks. I won't drink anything
'diet' and generally stay away from any processed foods. I'm
extremely driven. I work really well, if not best, under pressure.
I take my coffee black and as strong as it's physically possible to
brew. I believe a good cut of beef should be consumed rare. I never
bask in accomplishment, it's always; 'ok, what's next?'. I don't
enjoy watching sports (although do enjoy playing them) and the way
that people live vicariously through sports teams really rubs me
the wrong way. That being said, I will go (physically) see a Mets
game once a season for kicks. I've heard that I'm just about as Leo
as they come, but I'm certainly not very big on astrology. I'm can
come-off as arrogant and it can be a bit of a challenge to keep me
entertained/interested; but if you earn my respect/admiration I'll
take a bullet for you. I like being on control (that extends to
most aspects of life, including sexuality). Too much information?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write for, produce and tour with several bands/song-writers. I
travel as much as I can but plan on living in New York indefinitely
(although I've considered moving to Berlin or Copenhagen).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...cooking my ass off.
...driving almost anything with wheels (or a prop).
...getting around; I have a damn good sense of direction.
I know the five boroughs like the back of my hand (you could
literally blindfold me, throw me in the back of a van, drop me of
in any neighborhood, take the blindfold off and I would know both
where I am and where the nearest bad-ass falafel joint is).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height and how serious I look all the time (I've come accept the
fact that I am a heck of a lot more serious than most people are
the majority of the time).
I've also been told I have pretty interesting eyes and a very solid

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee (brewed strong...Oslo, Blue Bottle, etc).
Passion (in whatever forms it might manifest itself).
Great food (especially really good breads).
Well broken-in shoes/boots.
The changing of the seasons (I live for autumn).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
L'esprit de l'escalier.
What the best use of my time is.
Where I can find a room that I can get that "When the Levee Breaks"
drum sound in.
Where the woman selling tamales in my neighborhood has run off to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing a gig, in a recording session, working on a song or at a
friend's show. The nights of the week are pretty irrelevant to me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not a private person at all, but, I'm consistently consciously
fighting a New York accent (I turn it on pretty thick in certain
situations where it's necessary).

I'm in a very happy relationship with a beautiful 25y/o woman.
We're looking to explore new territory sexually; specifically with
regard to inviting an additional partner into the bedroom with us.
She's incredibly turned-on by the idea of watching me have my way
with another woman. She's 5'8", raven-haired, porcelain-skinned,
very submissive and rocks a perfect hourglass figure. We're looking
for someone who is disease-free (we're both completely clean) and
interested exploring some (what is for us) uncharted territory.
