My self-summary
I could try to be big in the eyes of the world
What matters to me is what I could be to just one girl...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm always thinking, I find I am, a mind that never sleeps, a Dreamer of better days, a man, just a man trying to be what he believes one should be.

I feel great solace and an attraction to nostalgia, the way things use to be. I collect albums on Record, Cassette, Reel to Reel and 8-Track. Nothing surpasses the range, presence, and Warmth of an analog recording.

I greatly admire the 50's,60's,70's and the 80's, the people that know me always say I look like I came from the past, as well I know more about before I was born than my own time on earth.

Looking for someone who is mature in regard to a relationship, I really need to know someone before I can consider to bestow trust upon them, even though "I want to trust people".

I do NOT have Facebook, I have no need. I feel, I should be concentrating my energy within real life. If you cannot be my friend because I don't have Facebook than you do not deserve to be my friend. Our real life actions make us all we are.

I am Cynical, Loyal, and Hell Bent
What I’m doing with my life
Graduated from OCAD University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Discipline was drawing and painting, traditional with non-traditional subject matter would best describe my work. Sadly the discipline is truly marginalized today...

At one point I ended a five year employment at a Fine dining Italian Restaurant, where I was a Line Cook / Chef, it was something that I had lost lust in doing, and I wanted to keep it as something I would still enjoy doing on occasion.

Currently work as the Hardware manager at a fabric branding company.

I collect various things, from Vintage concert T-shirts to high-end 80's Walkmans, I like to preserve obscure history.

I spend my spare time working on and maintaining my classic car, 1985 Cutlass Supreme Coupe! I take it to cruise nights and shows.
I’m really good at
Fixing things, such as electronics and mechanical devices (I enjoy soldering :P).

Remembering information, some would say useless information.
The first things people usually notice about me
In all honesty I'm eccentric...

I have a fascination with vintage jackets.

I have long hair and it can get wild in the wind.

I'm Science in Stereo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The greatest piece of cinema ever made: Blade Runner, this film is by so far my favourite that nothing even comes close. I always like a good movie including; Drive, Dune, Beyond the Black Rainbow, The Holy Mountain, Sleepy Hollow, Deep Red (Profondo Rosso), Heavy Metal, Xtro, original three (Unedited) Star Wars, Legend, The Dark Crystal, The Keep, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Fifth Element, Donnie Darko, Taxi Driver, Labyrinth, Fantastic Planet, The Beatles in HELP!, and many more...

Shows: Miami Vice, the best television show ever...but maybe more fairly, Carl Sagan's Cosmos. Also enjoy, American Horror Story and most recently, ROADKILL (online gear-head show).

Music is my ambrosia, the genres I really enjoy are, Progressive/Art Rock, Metal, Psychedelic Rock, and Early Synth. I enjoy Metal (mainly 80's) but I'm a little more complex than just metal. I like to Relax to the Avant-garde genres, but primarily I listen to Progressive Rock, nothing moves me more than the ominous sustain of a Mellotron. I could go on forever but to name a few artists/bands I can't live without; Genesis, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Van Der Graaf Generator, Eloy, Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate, Def Leppard, Judas Priest, Ratt, Scorpions, Black Sabbath, Kaleidoscope (U.K.), Dream Theater, Opeth, The Beatles, Gandalf, The Zombies, The Moody Blues, Yes, Asia, ELP, Gentle Giant, Le Orme, Astra, Blue Oyster Cult, Rush, Hawkwind, Queen, The Alan Parsons Project, Saga, ELO, David Bowie, Naked Eyes, Tears For Fears, The Police, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Neil Young, Vangelis, The Fixx, Boston, Tame Impala, The Cars, The Beach Boys, Ultravox, April Wine, Steely Dan, Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry and...

I absolutely adore Roxy Music's album Avalon, beautiful, just beautiful. "Sometimes I get so blue, People say I'm just a fool. All the world, even you, Should learn to love the way I do".

I'm completely enamored with the psychedelic album Gandalf (1968). It is something special I will hold dear until my last day.
The six things I could never do without
That's hard, if they were just material items maybe:

(In no particular order) My:

-Classic Car a 1985 Cutlass Supreme Coupe

-Cassette Walkman(s)

-8-Track player (Pioneer H-R100) and tapes

-Record Player (Sansui FR-D3) and records

-Retro Furniture (Mid century modern)

-Tool Chest/box
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The importance of what truly makes us human; memories, empathy... love.
And why so many people are inhuman.
Really just, Too Much...
On a typical Friday night I am
Leading the Nightmare Patrol...

Going for a night cruise in my Cutlass with no intentions. Staying up late with a few drinks and falling asleep watching Blade Runner...
You should message me if
You listen to early Genesis and King Crimson albums!

If your soul was from a time past and adore the fine points of then.

If you are a genuine person, have good intentions and want to know me more(and me to know you likewise).
