My self-summary
If you "like" this profile, please send a message, or it will go nowhere.

I've played guitar for over a decade and dig the neo-contemporary, post-post hardcore, indie-pseudo-grunge, progressive punk scene(s). Check out my band where we attempt to describe the above: facebook.com/rightlaneendsrocks, rightlaneends.bandcamp.com

I plays the games- PS2, GameCube, and XB360 veteran. I'm less affiliated with any particular console nowadays, but those are my nostalgic pigeonholes. I'm starting to get into board games: Ascension, Munchkin, Shadowrift... I'm always in for a night of Cards Against Humanity, as well.

I cooks the foods- Healthier living has made me decent at kitchen improvisation. Throw ingredients at me at random and something is bound to be on a plate for dinner.

I think my favorite thing that's ever been said about me is, "I've never met anyone with such a fluid personality," which was meant as a compliment, and I took it.

For everything else, there's the message system.
What I’m doing with my life
Surviving the security business while very seriously trying to put together a progressive/punk rock band.
I’m really good at
Guitar. I can write some mean riffs, if I do say so myself. I can play along with just about anything, if you're musically inclined as well.
Improvisation, problem solving, and cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
Glasses, adorkableness
I like to think I have a Douglas Adams-y sense of humor

Six things I could never do without
1: Music, including the ability to write and perform it
2: Those stress-free days
3: Family
4: Friends
5: Logical comprehension
6: Passion
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The past and the future. Never really the present, but you never really do think about the present, do you? It's always immediately in the past or future. Weird, eh?

I'm a skeptical being. Comes with the territory, I suppose.
On a typical Friday night I am
No longer working swing shift! I'm either out with friends, looking forward to sleeping in or traveling to Eugene to see my old college crew. Ideally, my band would be playing a show that night or sometime that weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book, if you're willing to read.
You should message me if
Questions, comments, death threats?

You want to jam out, hang out or make out.

Be passionate and tell me something I don't know.
