My self-summary
Wow, it's been a while, hasn't it? Into the fray, I guess. Hi, I'm Alex. Here's what I'm all about.

I'm back in my hometown of St. Louis, MO.

After graduating from a four-year university with a degree in communications, I'm a full-time advertising content writer. In my spare hours, I make desultory video productions on my Youtube channel and listen to rock/metal/electronic. Good times.
What I’m doing with my life
Advertising content writing and video production. Had a stint writing articles for a small press site, but now I'm a videographer by hobby and I know a thing or two about writing, podcasting and all that fancy 21st century digital age stuff. My home base is currently in St. Louis, Missouri, specifically my apartment in the St. Charles region.

Being a music/gaming nerd, going to concerts, making videos, all that good stuff. Fascinating culture, it is. If you're curious about the YT channel, let me know.

And before you start making assumptions, no, I don't waste my entire life indoors playing video games. This seems to be some sort of stereotype that gets tossed around much more than people want to admit. I like games and I write/produce content about them professionally, but I get out of the house and exercise just as much as any other person. I wanted to get that out of the way, since...well...trust me, labels are already starting to be printed.
I’m really good at
saying what I'm really good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hoodie. I love my hoodie. It's warm and the sleeves are long.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love that era. I also love prog stuff (getting into Porcupine Tree a lot lately and loving them). I'm a self-proclaimed audiophile.

On occasion, I'll dive into other stuff. Definitely digging music like Goes Cube, Beach Slang and VAPERROR lately.

I love being offered suggestions and recommendations on what to listen to.

Food
Whatever I decide to eat that night
The six things I could never do without
- Family
- Friends
- Tech
- Music
- Writing
- All of the above
I spend a lot of time thinking about
all of the things that I need to get done at the time. Deadlines are always a struggle for someone interested in writing. It's tough staying on top of everything going on in my life, but I occasionally have a "Matrix" moment and wonder if the world we live in is real or not.
On a typical Friday night I am
thinking about what to do next Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm on OkCupid. I know a lot of people give this answer, but it's true.
You should message me if
You have something that you want to say to me. That's my only requirement.

I'm not going to give a twenty-line checklist of what I "expect" in a person, because that's not how this stuff works. Bonds don't come from bulleted lists; they come from conversation. Use those social skills and something might happen. You never know.

However, if you think that "social skills" means giving me a message that simply reads "hi" or "what's up", there's a probable chance that nothing will come of that. I appreciate you making the first move, but give me something to work with, please.
