My self-summary
From a recent New Yorker article:

"Roger Ebert gave EJC90 two thumbs up, stating '...he's definetly good at doing human stuff. Walking, talking, eating...this guy has got it down. I was especially impressed with the ease and range he showed in his breathing. Truly a remarkable performance for the ages.' Mr. Ebert went on to refer to EJC90 as a 'great example of someone who's really mastered the art of blinking', 'alive', and 'the best thing that's ever happened to sleeping.'"

Brooklynite, Midwest transplant, recently graduated from a Master's program in music therapy, and currently looking for employment in the field
What I’m doing with my life
-Becoming a music therapist...yes, it's as awesome as it sounds :-) I work with anyone from young children with autism to adults with mental illnesses be everyone in between. Hoping to find a job at a city hospital in mental health care
-Biking around Brooklyn as much as possible. It's amazing the places you can go and the things you can see when you're not limited by public transit
-Teaching guitar and voice lessons to children and young adults
-Soaking in the summery goodness (while working on a grad thesis...dun dun dunnnnn)
-Scouring the city for new spots for coffee, food, and drink
-Jamming with friends / busking in parks for kicks
-Trying out a new recipe at home at least once or twice a week
-Making lists on this site, apparently
I’m really good at
-Musicing in an infinite number of ways (definitely have to use that word as a verb). Love singing, rapping, writing, playing, etc.
-Therapizing (also a verb)
-Producing and mastering songs / albums for myself and friends...anything from dreamy synth pop to hard-hitting gangsta rap to Chechnyan folk (if that's what you're into). If you can dream it, I can make it!
-Faking a Scottish accent
-Acting as a vast encyclopedia of mostly useless facts (see also: wannabe Jeopardy! champ)
-People-watching like a professional
-Lounging around like I own the place
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm whistling some sort of jaunty tune

Or that my eyes get incredibly squinty when I smile or laugh. Every time, without fail

On a typical Friday night I am
Exactly where I am meant to be at that moment.
You should message me if
You realize there is much more to a person beyond these little white textboxes we're trying to cram our souls into.

Or something you read above made you either chuckle, snicker, guffaw, or some combination of the three. A guffickle, if you will...just realized that word sounds dirty when you say it out loud.

Hoping to connect with someone that I can vibe with on multiple levels. Creatively, philosophically, culinarily (google says that's a word), etc....Basically a partner in crime to get into general fun (*salutes*), revelry, shenanigans, deep conversations, explorations, and various (mis)adventures with around the city, drinking in the beauty (and/or booze) and sheer ridiculousness of the world around us at every turn.

And who knows? Maybe I AM the droid you're looking for.
The two of us
