My self-summary
Greetings! I'm Ian; I'm a recent graduate from UC Santa Barbara. Grew up in the Bay, and moved back after finishing up college down at UCSB where I did a double major in Computer Science and Psychology. I also DJ on the side. If I have time to myself, my headphones are on and I'm having a rave inside of my head. I could talk about this music for as long as you would be willing to listen to.
I love attending music festivals, drinking good beer, hearing what other people think about the world, and eating good food. So, if you like any of those things, or want music recommendations, just hit me up :)

I also really wish I could change my username without paying to do so... alas.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting started in the real world. Currently living in Santa Clara working as a software engineer. Adulting (I think).
I’m really good at
listening to other people. I love trying to understand other people's viewpoints, discussing anything, and I never try to get heated in discussions concerning differing ideologies. Otherwise, I won't be able to learn anything new and broaden my horizons. Everything said has some value behind it!
Finding music, mixing music, and talking about music.
Feeling extremely full of myself after writing this wall of text
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm really white / pale.
I'm quite around people I don't know well, but I warm up to people quickly if it's in a more relaxed setting.
I can't stop listening to music.
I make a lot of bad puns / dad jokes... you have been warned.

my Soundcloud page has a bunch of stuff I like -

Food: down to try new things and am open minded. pizza is my vice. Sushi, Indian food (not too spicy), a good steak :)
Six things I could never do without
1. Electronic music
2. Laptop (it has my music, connection to family, so much work on it)
3. DJ gear
4. Laughter
5. My family and friends
6. The internet - the collective knowledge of mankind at the source of my fingertips? what more could I ask for :) oh, and reddit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music - its construction, its patterns, how it affects people emotionally. I truly believe music is one of the most powerful ways of bringing people together, so I feel like if I try to understand how it touches people, I can understand people as a whole better.
On a typical Friday night I am
two kinds of Friday nights: relaxing with a select group of friends and kicking back listening to music, playing video games, occasionally smoking. The other kind involves going out to party or a show, DJing, and going wherever the night takes me
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll tell you if you tell me :)
You should message me if
: you love electronic music / going out to dance, going on bike rides, enjoying nature. I'd like to meet a girl who loves the earth, and who is down to earth =)
: you enoy kicking back and smoking a bowl, drinking a beer, or, even better, both.
: you value time to yourself. I love being with others, but I need time to recuperate and do my own thing to recharge myself.
: you set goals and work to achieve them, and want to motivate others to do the same / want to be motivated yourself.
: you are into fitness. I have been working into getting more fit and in shape so I can enjoy life to the fullest.
The two of us
