My self-summary
I grew up in a small northern Maine town before relocating to the Portland area after high school. Somewhat new to the whole online dating phenomon but have seen some friends meet some wonderful people this way so figured I'd give it a shot!
What I’m doing with my life
I work as an admin at a local engineering firm and play gigs (mostly weddings these days) with my band on the weekends. That's created a great balance of work and play for me. While I still love heading into town for music and friends, I'm growing weary of using that mechanism to meet someone I want to spend my life with, so thought this might be a great alternative.
I’m really good at
Forgetting a scripted joke 10 seconds after I heard it - much prefer wit over written jokes
Parallel parking (damn city!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told I have one of those extremely recognizable and contagious laughs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a big reader of the daily newspaper, whether online or paper version.

There are so many good movies, it's hard to narrow it down, but I particularly like suspense, like Sixth Sense or What Lies Beneath, to classics like the Indiana Jones trilogy or Back to the Future.

I'm into most of the big cable shows, like Game of Thrones, Homeland, Downton Abbey, The Blacklist, Californication, but can just as easily get roped into The Voice, Top Chef or other reality shows.

Extremely wide range of music likes - I just want it to be performed well. Just as easily as I could put on a Kanye West album, I could listen to Miles Davis' Kind of Blue.

I also love living in a town with 4 Star restaurants on every other corner downtown and having the opportunity to try new things.
Six things I could never do without
Friends & family
Wine & cheese
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday nights are typically my free weekend night as I do have a lot of gigs on Saturdays, so I'll let what's going on in town dictate my night. I love listening to good music and being social, but takeout and a movie will never be considered a wasted evening in my book either.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well then it wouldn't be private now, would it?
You should message me if
Chivalry is definitely not dead but I really don't mind women making the first contact either!
The two of us
