My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
100% musically motivated.

Scottish, left-handed artistic, tech-savvy Internet night owl.
Love to escape from quotidian work with: snowboarding, bike-riding, hiking, ultimate frisbee, *stock market research*, wine tasting, watching movies/Sharks hockey, and most importantly indispensable reading of online (i.e., Wired, Yelp & many others) articles. Incessantly learning about anything/everything for better decision making, understanding and vocabulary improvement. Random dialogue is thrilling to me and I indulge in strange facts and exploring different perspectives upon conversational tangents. My processing of daily tasks looks something like the "Stranger than Fiction" movie calculations. Enjoy brainstorming word combinations and watching thunder and lightning with fascination. Originally an Illustration major and a Graphic Design minor, I graduated from Syracuse University with a major in Communications (for the stable degree and more steady paycheck...however I find myself returning to my art form through website building now). Art aficionado of architecture, Renaissance paintings, Celtic knotwork, stain glass, impressionism, watercolor and especially calligraphy/graffiti. I am a restless mp3 scavenger constantly needing to discover new artists. Never play video games unless it's Tetris or the occasional racing game simulation. Abbreviations & condensed conversations with acronyms are fun. Love to laugh and find humor somehow in the absurd (situations). Writing is more meaningful than e-mails or text messages. Random expletives are a last resort to convey frustration. I love eating slow to savor the flavor(s). Accepting of animals. Fireflies are enlightening. Not much for consuming candy/sweets and am a flossing freak. Hypnotized by live music with an emphasis on electronic, guitar, piano, full orchestra (instrumental with less lyrics).

Socially outgoing however still a total introvert at heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Daytime: Working for an east coast start-up company in Los Gatos.

Nightime: Stock trading on the domestic/international markets.

In-between: Pursuing passion project of launching Internet start-up (another social networking site and not another imitation, 100% original/unique concept). Teaching myself Adobe Dreamweaver & Photoshop. Treasuring sleep when possible.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Art (charcoal/konte/mechanical pencil, calligraphy, painting).
Keeping a diligent notepad of capturing favorite adjectives/verbs/ catchphrases and quotations.
Stock market predictions.
Typing almost as fast as someone talks.
Staying up late and multi-tasking.
Listening and trying to "read between the lines" (when possible).
Prior planning mixed with spontaneity.
Memorizing good music lyrics.
Filtering overwhelming amounts of information online with notepads & spreadsheets.
Compiling detailed lists on various subjects.
Researching all options.
Pen spinning/twirling.
Saving (photographic) memory snapshots of subtle/important things to be applied later.
Never being bored with life because there is too much to accomplish.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Launching my overdue dream website (coding currently in progress...) Stock market investment trends to secure a current comfortable living & stable retirement. Jotting down ideas to personalize future gifts for family or friends during birthdays or holidays. Snowboarding or frisbee with creative mp3 playlists. The future of technology.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sushi/Thai/Italian/Mexican dinner with friends and late night Netflix movie with popcorn. Unless the Bay Area friends convene a huge house party or night downtown including billiards & beverages...I'm usually very chill after a long week of work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Cinema Paradiso is the most romantic film of all time.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want exposure to great new music, movies, art/musuems, food, wine, and enjoy some exercise (especially if that is frisbee or snowboarding, these activities are not a requirement however). I'm always up for a cup of coffee (Peet's preferred) or casual dining/walk & talk. If you appreciate companionship with integrity also...
