My self-summary
===============================================

I am an artist, DJ,photographer, musician, singer and writer. I love what I do and I am very passionate about it. INFJ on the personality spectrum.

I would like to meet someone special to take to a movie, see live music, go dancing, check out a cool restaurant, raid the free wine at art openings, watch a series on netflix at home on a saturday night, take trips out of state to music festivals. Fun stuff. Stuff I am going to do either way, but it would be more fun to share the experience.

I am a bit of nerd. I read comic books, love sci-fi, artsy films,
and I slay at Air Hockey. I still read books and collect vinyl .

Oh yeah........I am a guitarist/singer in a Post-Punk band and an electronic music producer(mostly house and techno.......of the chicago and detroit variety.......NO EDM). Usually not at the same time. I also play violin, saxophone, bass and theremin. My different artistic outlets represent different parts of my personality. If music is not important to you in your life I am most definitely not your guy.

In a nutshell I'm a decent dude looking for a decent gal to share in some adventure.
What I’m doing with my life
writing music.........duh
Writing about music. I am a music Journalist. I write for a local paper.
Reading books, Eating healthy, Yoga, learning German and planning my next big adventure.

I gig 3 to 4 nights a week. I spend my days in my studio working on tunes or writing.
I’m really good at
Music Stuff, Film nerdism, Air Hockey, Super Hero trivia, cooking
The first things people usually notice about me
My chops, My Chelsea Boots........I guess.
People often think I am in my late 20's. I am not.
