My self-summary
I'm better at talking about myself face to face over a cup of coffee or a pint of ale than filling in big blank boxes with extremely broad questions preceding them but I'll do my best. My name is Tony, and I'm difficult to summarize. I am very open and yet you may find it difficult to read me. I am a very thoughtful person but sometimes I can get caught up inside my own head and over think things. I have a strong sense of humor, so conversationally if we can establish a good back and forth hilarity may ensue. Music is my world (cliche but true).
What I’m doing with my life
Well, I moved to SW Portland 10 years ago for college and my heart found a new home. I didn't find what I was looking for at Portland State (although living in the dorms was a blast) so I dropped out after my first year. It was then that I joined the workforce here where I've dabbled in a couple different fields: customer service, retail, and most recently the restaurant industry. I am currently a server at the Olive Garden. I plan to go back to school in the reasonably near future (this fall) to become a teacher and music producer.
I’m really good at
The pursuit of trivia. Quoting things. Singing all the time.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, and my eyes/eyebrows. Also probably my beard and long hair/man bun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I created this profile a few years ago and I figure it's about time to update some of this info. Half of the tv shows in my list of likes were still on air when I wrote this (and have since been cancelled) if that is any indication. Still great shows for the record though.

I'm a picky eater...
Six things I could never do without
My cat: Philip J. Fry
The Portland Trailblazers
Umm, soap...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The next song I will attempt to write, the next amazing person I will meet, the next grand adventure I will take, what the future will hold for me proffesionally, and the fate of the Portland Trailblazers organization that I love so much.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not working, it really could be ANYTHING! I love concerts, going to fun and interesting restaurants for good dinner and cocktails, watching a blazers game if they're playing, hitting up a bar for KARAOKE, or staying in and Netflixin' it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmm, I think remaining somewhat mysterious is more important than answering this silly question.
You should message me if
You love music, basketball, general nerdiness, or if you are just a genuinely cool person that I should know.
The two of us
