My self-summary
I am awesome, and you should be interested in dating me. I am kind, genuine, charming and goofy. All the things to look for in a potential romance. I am passionate about singing, teaching, tango, knitting, video games, technological innovation and making pretty girls smile. I am also a little too into fantasy sports, I guess I'm your typical sensitive jock nerd... That's a thing right?

I do currently live on South Whidbey Island, which is about 30 minutes and a fifteen minutes ferry from downtown Seattle. I do not mind driving into the city at all, so don't let that dissuade you.
What I’m doing with my life
I would like to be able to tell you I spend my time taming dragons, but that wouldn't be true. I work at a bookstore, teach voice lessons to middle schoolers, and music direct at the whidbey children's theater. It's not glamorous, but it allows me to do the things I want to do. Like writing music that moves people. I'm looking at getting a masters in composing sometime in the near future. Would be pretty cool.
I’m really good at
Making humans comfortable in uncomfortable situations. Laughing to the point right before I pee myself and then controlling it. Knitting very evenly. Solving problems. And growing a really great looking beard.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am very direct and very honest, that I have very expressive eyebrows, that I'm absolutely ridiculous, and I don't often stop singing, whether it's inside my head or out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: I really like sea food, and pepperoni, and waffles. I really like waffles. As in: There is everything, and then above that is waffles. I'm not a very experienced cook, but it's something I've been working on a lot lately. I bought a great cook book and am working my way though trying to cook new things.

Music: I may as well be up front saying I live and breathe music. It is more or less constantly running through my head, whether it's something I'm writing or was listening to. I will list a few favorites though: Ben Folds, Goat Rodeo, Snarky Puppy, Mahler, Steve Reich, Owen Pallet.

Shows: I haven't made a lot of time for tv lately; but my favorite shows include: Shield, The Newsroom, Mozart in the jungle, The League, and Smash.

Movies: My favorite movies are Pitch Perfect, Tangled, and Secondhand Lions. I really like Romantic Comedies, Ancient Chinese War movies, and really anything that isn't scary or overly gory that I can cuddle with you and watch.

Books: I read nearly constantly, as in usually a book a week.
My main genre is sci-fi fantasy, but I recently have been reading nonfiction mostly about habits and psychology. My favorite authors are: William Gibson, Patrick Rothfuss, Michael J. Sullivan, and Scott Lynch.

My newest favorites are:
Ancillary Justice
Station Eleven
The Power Of Habit
The Tower Lord
Six things I could never do without
1. Making people smile 2. Mouth drumming 3. Belief in Unicorns 4. The Internetz 5. Paper Books 6. Really really bad jokes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be more tactful.
How to accept myself as well as others, and deal how to deal with my emotions in a productive way.
How create more productive habits.
What program could I teach to benefit the youth in my community.
Practicing piano.
On a typical Friday night I am
Warming up kids for our musical performance that night, then going to the bar to relax and get a drink. Also probably wishing I was going to sing some Karaoke, you can't help but swoon when you hear me singing Vanessa Carlton. When I fail to make plans I'm usually reading in bed or playing my mandolin
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to be Jason Robert Brown really bad. And I'm working every single day to work towards that. Not being him, but my life being similar. It's terrifying.
You should message me if
I'm looking for someone that wouldn't mind dancing with me in the street. Who will sit and watch the sunrise with me promptly followed by an hour of complaining how fucking early it is, and who doesn't mind a walk in the woods without intention of getting anywhere.

If you are not a fan of romance, you might want to find someone else. I will probably take you on obnoxiously cute dates, make you sweet gifts with my hands, and write you music pretending I belong in Big Fish. Just warning you, I'm awesome.

Thank you for taking the time to read to the bottom. This whole trying to find someone compatible, getting the timing right, and dealing with your own life thing is nonsense. I wish you luck if I'm not your style.
The two of us
