My self-summary
I'm a street walkin' cheetah with a heart full of napalm, the ayatollah of Rock n' Rolla, a gentleman and a scholar, lover of all that is heavy, lifter of all that is heavy, a guitar-slinging-sorcerer, and an actual Archaeologist. I'm also self-aware enough to realize how ridiculous that just sounded... Hi!

Now, a little music to set the mood:

What I’m doing with my life
Majoring in Archaeology, playing in 2 bands, playing my guitar well past 3 in the morning, learning how to play the saxophone, going on random hikes and roadtrips, lifting lots of heavy things to fulfill my childhood dream of being Conan The Barbarian, and trying to become a globe-trotting adventurer while resisting the urge to sail away and wander around until I at least finish my Bachelor's.

My most recent adventure brought me to Ireland, where I was a staff member on an Archaeological field-school! Spent a couple months excavating a castle, guzzling gallons of Guinness, and singing covers of Doors' songs with a few of the many bands that frequent Irish Pubs; All while trying to cover my monolithic nerd-boner for all things medieval from my peers. Great times! Can't wait to go back this summer...

"Lives of great men all remind us
We may make our lives sublime,
And departing leave behind us
Footprints in the sands of time..."
I’m really good at
Playing guitar (and I'm even better at playing air-guitar! :3), Playing bass, playing piano/keyboards, drawing, getting out of speeding tickets, writing, impressions, I've been told I give the best hugs, and that I've got quite the handshake...
On a more boring note, I'm also good at mapping terrain and structures, digging for artifacts without accidentally destroying them before cleaning and cataloging them (oh yes, I'm sure you're gonna want to hear ALL about that, lol)... All kinds of other shit, the list just goes on and on... obviously self reflection as you can plainly see.
The first things people usually notice about me
-My loooooong flowing hair; you'd best believe I let my freak-flag fly!
-My jawline
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything about ancient world history, mythology, Sci-Fi, Sword&Sorcery/fantasy, adventure, etc. Robert E. Howard, Tolkien, G.R.R. Martin, Lovecraft, Moorcock (best name ever), etc... Also, I can school you on any comic book character (ladies, one at a time, please!). I think every American should have to read Howard Zinn's "A People's History of the United States," however we would probably need more funding for mental healthcare for the aftermath of all that mass disillusionment, haha.

Movies: Waaayy too many to name, but I like the dark and bizarre. Conan The Barbarian, Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness, LOTR, Star Wars, of course; all the usual esoteric nerdy, trippy, weird stuff. I will watch anything with Clint Eastwood. Long live the Toxic Avenger! 'Nuff said.
Shows: SPARTACUUUSSS!!! Californication, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Ash Vs. Evil Dead, Rick and Morty... Adult Swim and Comedy Central, what more do you need? Game of Thrones is probably the greatest thing ever put to TV.

As for Music; I love classic Rock n' Roll, Punk, and Heavy Metal with a fiery passion! Guitar is the boon of my existence (though I'm also pretty good on the piano), so if you play me dubstep, edm, rap (unless it's absurdly thugnificent), or any mindless, top 40 bullshit, I will start to convulse, turn pale, then vomit acid-blood all over you... Hail Satan!
Here's the part where I would list my favorite bands... But you likely don't have 5 years to read that phonebook of a list, so I'll just name a few; Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Motörhead, AC/DC, Iggy (Pop) and the Stooges, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, etc, etc, et-fucking-cetera. Also... I want the Funk, I need the Funk, I've got to have that Funk, Give me the Funk. Funkadelic, Muthafunka, tear the roof off the sucker! Classical music, jazz, the blues, folk, and Spaghetti Western themes too!

Food: I love all kinds, especially the more exotic flavors like Indian and Thai. I'm always eager to try something new and incredible!.. Unless it has testicles or bugs of any sort, or was fermented in spit or feces.... Ecuador was an interesting place... If you're ever there, don't drink the Chicha, trust me!
The six things I could never do without
A guitar (preferably electric), Rock n' Roll, a good sturdy pair of boots, a few good friends, decent food, and a good night's sleep.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How one day the universe itself will die and there will not be any trace of any of our meager accomplishments or even our very existence left and life and the very act of existing in and of itself is entirely devoid of meaning or purpose other than what one makes of their own infinitesimally brief time. How one day no matter what one does, all of their organic matter will rot away and even the dust of their bones will be absorbed back into the earth. I know, I'm just a ray of fucking sunshine.
Death, love, sex, guitar (riffs and solos), poems/lyrics, history, what I want out of life, where I want to travel, nature, what I want to do with my life "The future's uncertain, and the end is always near.... Let it roll, baby, roll!"
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking, shakin' my ass and banging my head to some tunes, hanging out with my friends, going somewhere, doing something, eventually ending up spaced out, jamming in my room at like 4 in the morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
- I have relatively long and sharp canine teeth, almost vampire-esque.
- I'm Batman.
- I was fairly drunk when I wrote this thing, as I assume one must be to stand rambling on about themselves like this... for better or worse, I think it shows, haha.
- One of these isn't true
You should message me if
Any of my hunky photos and/or bizarre ramblings have stirred you to do so.
You like a man who can serenade you with blistering improvised guitar solos fit for 70s vinyl.
I'm really not trying to talk to a computer screen, so hit me up if you want to have some fun and get to know each other better in person!
