My self-summary
INTP, for those who care about that kind of thing.

Music is my biggest passion. I've been playing guitar for about 15+ years. I write songs to try to express those aspects of life that would otherwise remain buried. If you'd like to hear some demos, just message me! I can send you a link to my SoundCloud account.

Life is a huge set of mysteries, and I'm never satisfied with the answers I'm given. I love to discuss various ideas & theories that attempt to explain our existence. I also thrive on getting to know a person past their surface, assuming said person is comfortable with that.

But I'm certainly not always so serious! I'm very easy-going & laid back. I enjoy pointing out the bizarre side of life. We're surrounded by idiosyncrasies that we pass by everyday. A sense of humor is important to realizing those odd quirks in life.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a musician/guitarist who enjoys learning about different aspects of life (music/art, history, astronomy, politics, science in general) and putting it all together.
I’m really good at
Listening. I take in what you say and give it thought. I can be good at making people laugh, although I can also make people facepalm with my terrible puns. You know the type, they're so bad that they're good.

I'm also really good at video games, or at least I like to think I am. I grew up on old PC games where 16 colors at the same time was a big deal. It's been amazing to see how far they've come. Currently, I'm mostly a PC/Steam gamer, but I did just get a Wii U, which is incredibly fun.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my beard, especially if I haven't trimmed it in awhile. After that, I think people notice that I'm warm & receptive.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite movies include the original Star Wars trilogy, the Back to the Future trilogy, the first Matrix movie, Contact, Zoolander, UHF, Contact, A Beautiful Mind, American Beauty, Indiana Jones among others...

When it comes to books, I tend to enjoy history, travel, neurology & psychology, as well the occasional novel when someone recommends something to me.

As far as music goes, my favorite bands are Pearl Jam, Tool, Soundgarden, Primus, Pink Floyd, Mad Season, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Kyuss/Queens of the Stone Age/Them Crooked Vultures, Nirvana, Radiohead, RHCP, Torche, Mono, Modest Mouse and much more...

As far as TV is concerned, Game of Thrones has been my favorite as of recently. I also love The Simpsons, well, at least the first 10 seasons or so.
The six things I could never do without
A guitar & an amp, iPod, computer, video games, and contact with those I care about.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Trying to figure out this whole existence thing.

I also love thinking about music and the methods that musicians use to get the effect they desire.

I also find myself thinking about cosmology and the nature of reality. I tend to rely on what physicists' theories say, but naturally, I don't actually understand the math & such that justify the theories. It's humbling when you think about how the experts themselves aren't 100% sure yet. Makes me wonder what we'll discover in the future!
On a typical Friday night I am
Same thing we do every night, Pinky.

What's that Brain?

Try to take over THE WORLD!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, this is where it gets personal, and I have to be honest about it because it's going to come up regardless. I have Fibromyalgia & Sjogren's Syndome. Yes, this means I'm living at home at the moment. I was in college for psychology when I just couldn't do it anymore.
You should message me if
Message me if all of this sounds interesting to you. Simple as that. I try to be an open book, so if feel free to ask me anything! Especially message me if you're a musician!
