My name's Andrew. I drink a lot of coffee, manage and fix a lot of computers for a living, enjoy movies, live concerts, books, museums, and adventures, and like to think I'm a pretty fun guy.
In another life, I used to be a touring rock musician, but these days I'm an IT guy with an adorable dog, a house full of guitars, and some fun stories.
When not responsible for way too much at work, you can find me watching baseball, going on adventures with my best friend, being a nerd about Marvel and Sci-Fi stuff, trying new restaurants and craft beers, and sometimes just trying to catch up on sleep.
Remembering band names, song titles, and album titles. (A completely useless skill.)
Learning how to play songs I hear.
Recalling useless information I found on the internet.
Just kidding. Only most of them are black.

Food: I love sushi, and other kinds of fish as well. If it's seafood, I'll eat it. There really isn't one favorite kind of food I like. Lately, my favorite restaurant is the Food Market in Hampden.
-as horrible as it is to say this, my iPhone
-Baltimore, in general
-did I mention coffee?
What I would do if I had a TARDIS?
Or at Oriole Park. (Perks of working for a college: Cheap Friday Night seats!)
Honestly, there's no better Friday night than a chilled out get together with friends. Maybe a bar where I can hear them talk, maybe someone's house. Good food, good drinks, good company.
I was a Jungle Cruise skipper.
I sank one of the boats.
So I'll be forward, and put this out there; I'm not looking to play games, or do hook up type stuff. I'm more interested in really getting to know people, to grow my social circle a bit, and I have the end goal of finding someone to actually be a partner with. Commitment is the long term goal, as long as it's the right person.
