My self-summary
My name is Chris, but most people call me Danforth. I just moved back to Columbus after 8ish years in Seattle and Boston. INTJ.

I truly mean it when I say that I'm drama-free. I won't judge you, creep you out, patronize you, blow your phone up, project my wants/expectations, or make my problems yours. We are all of equal value, regardless of our decisions or lifestyles.
What I’m doing with my life
My goal this year is to keep things simple.
Most weeks my time is spent either working, playing with my dogs, or writing and relaxing.

I have alpacas and some chickens who need love as well.. always coming up with fun projects to work on with friends.
I’m really good at
Dangerous Optimism
Communicating
Being brutally, awkwardly honest
Strategy
Gardening
Music & theory
Making drinks
Listening
Making money, and managing said money.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm unusually honest. I don't pretend to be anything, I very much enjoy just being me.

I like to talk. Language is such a gift, communicating well can be so satisfying.
However, I don't like to type it all out. It feels unnatural.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm the least picky eater I've ever met. Favorite go-to meal is grilled veggies and crazy fried rice. Just throw it in the wok!

Music is usually not a matter of taste for me. My life has revolved around playing and listening to music since I was a child, and it will be the source of both my happiness and employment for the rest of my life. I won't listen to music and actively dislike it unless it is something else before it's music.

I grew up playing creole music (new orleans jazz), Cuban & various Latin American styles, and big band jazz on my trumpet, but got deep into funk, R&B, and hip hop in college. On the bass I grew up playing metal/hard rock, small group jazz, eventually exploring hip hop and funk as well. I listen to 'classical' music on the daily, but rarely when anybody's around.
Six things I could never do without
Canine friends
Paper & Pen
Space heater
Humor
Caffeine
Golden Grahams (tied with sriracha)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm all over the place, seriously.
I get really excited about random concepts or ideas sometimes, and catch myself explaining things to specific people in my head as if they were in the room with me. I relish in seeing the big picture. I make fun of myself often.

Often, being too trusting and open with people gets me into trouble, but I refuse to change. I don't hide my flaws, you'll know the 'real' me quickly if you pay attention.

I prefer to assume the best out of others and be dissapointed every once in a while, as opposed to assuming the worst out of the world and in constant search for the exceptions. I prefer the inevitable consequences of trusting openly over the dull unhappiness that comes from trusting nobody.

My work is my passion, so naturally much of my mindspace is taken up by the fear and excitement of business.

I write every day.. rather I continually develop a series of 'strategic initiatives', both for my personal life and the life of my company. Long story.
On a typical Friday night I am
In my hot tub, listening to music (drink and/or blunt optional).
Working from home, writing or reading.
Hanging out with my dogs, listening to awesome music and thinking.

I'll go out if I'm invited, but to be honest that's a rare occasion. I enjoy quality time alone with my thoughts, maybe a guest or two. Can't pretend I'm that hyper-social dude who loves to party, just not my vibe.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Now that I am yet again living in an unfamiliar city by myself, I'm starting to realize just how lonely I've allowed myself to become over the years. Moving around so much has had a negative impact on my ability to make quality friends, even though I'm surrounded by awesome people. I feel very alone sometimes.
You should message me if
If you want to take my dogs to the park with me, or bring yours if you have one. They LOVE adventures!

If smoking a joint in my hot tub with me (and possibly a friend of yours + my roommate) sounds like fun,

If you have any constructive criticism,

Say hi, I'm easy to talk to :)
