I am now happily in a relationship but cannot remember my password
so this profile survives until I can figure out how to get rid of
it. Thanks everybody.
What I’m doing with my life
I edit television programs for a living. I play drums in a band,
directed a feature film that is finishing up post-production, and
recently started DJing world funk music. I love to travel, read,
watch films, listen to music, go on adventures.
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
Some people said it was that my beard color (red) doesn't match my
hair color (brown), but I just mentioned this to a friend, who
stared for a bit, and then said, "huh, you're right!". Maybe the
glasses? Or the American accent. (Been living here since 2004.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: I've been reading a lot of neuroscience stuff lately.
Generally love modern literature: Richard Powers, Ben Marcus, David
Mitchell. Last book I read that I loved - Don Carpenter, HARD RAIN
movies: MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE, 2001: A SPACE
ODYSSEY, LADY TERMINATOR. And a billion more.
music: I grew up on indie rock/punk: Superchunk, Fugazi,
Dismemberment Plan, Mountain Goats. Of late I've been listening to
lots of international 70s dance music - Nigerian disco funk,
Ghanaian highlife, Peruvian cumbia, lots of stuff that sounds
pretentious to talk about but is awesome fun to listen to. And John
Coltrane, Gillian Welch, Dirty Three, Explosions in the Sky ...
this could go on for a very long time.
The six things I could never do without
musical listening thing
something to write on/with
I spend a lot of time thinking about
pretty much everything. I'm a recovering philosophy major.
On a typical Friday night I am
out seeing/playing live music, watching a movie, having drinks with
friends, or beginning a weekend outing/adventure.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've never eaten a taco under - or even near - a waterfall.
You should message me if
you're smart, funny, and generally awesome.
