My self-summary
I cannot see who *likes* me on here - I'd you do please send a message :-)

I am an outgoing, fun, and sometimes crazy guy who knows how to be serious when I have to. I am very honest, straight forward, and I tend to go after what I want. I am very bad at hiding my curiosities and I tend to say what I am thinking out loud (whether I want to or not). Sometimes I have to put my foot in my mouth, but I always admit when i am wrong and I try to have no regrets. I have been told people either like me right away, or they are not sure what to make of me.. I guess you'll just have to decide for yourself :-)
What I’m doing with my life
I just relocated to LA from Texas. Its a bit of a leap of faith right now, but it was a long time coming. I am interested to see more of LA now that I am a resident. I am a freelance Sound Designer for film and television. I was working for a large YouTube channel for a few years, but it was time to break out and try something new.

In my off time I like to watch movies, hit the town and meet new people. Occasionally I'll stay at home and play a video game, but more often then not I am researching something new and random.. One of the many things that keeps me up too late every night. I also enjoy building and modifying my own guitars when I need to get away from screens.
I’m really good at
Taboo.. I will Dominate at that game.

My secret talent is reading people. I am very good at getting inside their heads and seeing why they do what they do. I have a freak talent for memorizing dialogue from films.. and an even more impressive talent for remembering distinctive sounds and smells from my life (its partially how I got into the business).

I am an OK guitar player at best, but I like playing them. I like building them and fixing them even more. If you have a guitar that needs a repair - talk to me and we'll see what we can do.

I am also a very good problem solver, but of course the blessing and curse of that ability is I am much better at fixing other people's problems than my own. I am good at seeing both objective and subjective sides and weighing the difference.

I am crap at dancing, but I like to sing and I adore Karaoke and Head-Banging.
The first things people usually notice about me
My tall "Johnny Bravo" Hair... Or my hat collection (When I am too lazy to do my hair)

I am outgoing and shameless about myself - I have always lived my life fairly out-loud. Other things I have been told is I have a great smile (been told to upload better pictures, someone help me take some) and I am good at telling stories.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Lately all I read is non-fiction. Usually its a biography, the telling of a historical event, Or the behind the scenes of a band or a movie that I like. I also read a ton of How-To or instructional books If I am taking on a new hobby. As a child I loved classic sci-fi - All about Juels Verne and H.G. Wells.

MOVIES: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Dark City, The Matrix (#1, not #2 or 3), Gross Point Blank, That Thing You Do, The Matador, The Outlaw Josey Wales, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, The Fifth Element, John Carpenters: The Thing, Sunshine, Romeo + Juliet, Casino Royale, Iron Man, Star Wars (4-6), Bill and Ted (Both), The Edge, Taxi Driver, The Big Sleep, SLC Punk... etc.

TV: It fluctuates. I haven't had broadcast TV in 10 years, so its usually catching up on what I choose to watch. All time favorites would have to be: The Mighty Boosh, Junkyard Wars, Firefly, Fringe, Sports Night, Spaced, The Adventures of Pete and Pete, Community. I am loving almost everything Netflix puts out these days.

MUSIC: I have a wide array of tastes, but I usually stay in the Classic Rock, Blues, and Heavy Metal camps: Mastodon, ZZ Top! Faith No More, Tomahawk, Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, No Doubt, Rush, Dick Dale, The Darkness, The Ventures, Green Day (classic version), Chuck Berry, Judas Priest, Bo Diddley, Jimi Hendrix, Black Label Society, Joe Walsh (James Gang, Eagles), Black Sabbath, Nirvana.. the list goes on.. and I am sure some of it would surprise you.

FOOD: I used to be pretty basic with my food, but after living in Austin for a few years, I have learned to experiment more. Now I love Indian food and I am warming up to Korean BBQ.
The six things I could never do without
(1&2) Conversation and Companionship. I would like to think that I could survive on a desert island.. and probably could, but if I go a few days without a good talk my moral drops considerably.
(3) Movies and Music. Its a career because its a passion. It would suck to do without.
(4) Fresh Air. I do work inside a lot, and do not go out as much as I should, but when I do I immediately feel better.
(5) Something personal to craft. My career involves making other people's dreams and visions come to life, and I have learned that if I do not have something to work on just for me.. I start to lose it.
(6) If we are being honest - sex of course
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a regular basis...

Myself - I self reflect a lot.
Others - why people do certain things, what compels them and why.
Women - All of it, most I will never understand as much as I would like to.
Work - What I have to do, where I will get my next job.
Guitars - Building mostly, and various design aesthetics.

EVERYTHING ELSE - my mind drifts a lot, and since I say what I am thinking, you'll hear it... but not in an ADD I am not paying attention sort of way. I pay too much attention.
On a typical Friday night I am
The same thing I do every Friday night.... Try to take over the world.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm kinky. I like all kinds of women (race, shape, attitude), it throws some people off. I can be very stubborn, and sometimes I don't take hints very well... If I am supposed to know something just say it.

You have to be very specific with me and "Netflix and Chill". If you propose watching a movie with me, and its a good movie I have not seen, I will ACTUALLY want to watch it and not fool around.
You should message me if
You want to talk, about literally almost anything! I tend to shy away from talking too much about religion and politics, but I LOVE to be engrossed in a good conversation!

I am here to make friends, meet people, and see what happens. If you know of a good event coming up, or you just think we might make good partners in time - Drop me a line. I don't bite too hard.
