...If that awful joke didn't have you running for the hills, then maybe we'd get along.
I'm a professional musician - I play trumpet, I write music, I teach music occasionally, and I do other music-related tasks. I'm currently working on a bunch of arrangements for a new band that I want to start in early January, playing original jazz and arrangements of some sweet standards.
I'm also a traveling tournament official for large strategy game tournaments, which is how I pay the bills right now. It's super nerdy, but it's fun.
I also have a channel on twitch.tv where I occasionally let people watch me play games and listen to music and tell jokes. The games I'm okay at, the music is sweet, and the jokes...well, I'm working on them.
Music: I grew up with jazz and big band music, as well as classic rock, and old-style R&B (think Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind & Fire, and the like). My playlist is an eclectic collection of hits from classical music all the way up to Ke$ha and beyond. Except for dubstep. I can't stand dubstep.
Food: I probably like a lot more than I regularly eat, but I'm not super adventurous when I'm on my own, so I pretty much stick to a consistent rotation of easy-to-cook meals that tend to revolve around pasta and sandwiches. Maybe you want to introduce me to something different?
If you're looking for workout buddies. I have a plan to lose a bunch of my extra weight in the upcoming year, and the thing I see myself having trouble with is the motivation to go to the gym. I just bought this fancy Planet Fitness membership, now I need to make myself use it.
Or if you just want to talk - I love chatting with people and seeing if we become friends or whatnot.
