My self-summary
My name is DJ Steve Aoki. I've made a lot of techno music. Not too long ago one of my fans was trampled at a packed show I played in South America. I've been known to hang out with the likes of Lindsay Lohan and other Hollywood elite. I'm the heir to the Benihana franchise, so I'm also filthy rich.

Juuuuuuuuust kidding. But my name is really Steven Aoki.

I want to make some new friends. Like completely new ones.

I've lived in Northampton for some time, and I love the friends I have, and I love this town, but I need to find some new friendships outside of this town because it's really easy to feel trapped and stagnant here. They do call the valley a black hole, because it's very easy to get here, but it's almost impossible to leave once you do (even if you can't wait to get out).

I'm not sure I'm looking for anything romantic at the current moment, I'm concentrating on my life, I.E. staying ambitious, maintaining forward momentum, so on and so forth.

Now hang on just one second. That DOESN'T mean that I don't like to be around wonderful women who I vibe with and can start new friendships with. There's nothing wrong with having friends who you find attractive.

If you're looking for a man, want to get married or be in a relationship, time to move on, I'm not your guy. But if you want to find a new friend? A real one? Then let's fucking go! I'm ready.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to figure that out. I've worked a lot of different jobs, done a lot of different things, and nothings really clicked yet. Maybe you can help me figure it out over dinner. Currently I am one of the newest supervisors at Antonio's Pizza in Amherst. I work a lot.

What I do know is that music has always been integral to my life, and I've often tried to shape whatever career I've wanted around it, but it's hard, man.
I’m really good at
Music. I'll sing you a song, or write you a song, or arrange you a song, whatever you want.

I'm good at talking. Have a bad day? Give me a call, I've got the words to heal what ails ya.

Being a friend. If we click, and we become fast pals, I'll be loyal, trustworthy, and dependable.

Also I can walk on water, fight crime in superhero costumes, learn foreign languages in minutes, and fly.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, obviously! Haha, I can charm the pants off you with a well placed smile and a sincere look in the eyes. Most of the time it's genuine and not calculated, but trust me, I know how to use it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books is hard, I read occasionally, but not often. It's more in spurts. I'll read 5 books in a month, then not read for a year. I think the book I've enjoyed most recently was Ender's Game, and it was good timing because that movie came out soon after and it's always fun to compare a novel and it's cinematic counterpart. And now, I'm slowly getting through Crime and Punishment for the first time. Dostoyevsky is not a light read...

Movies? The Royal Tennenbaums is still one of my favorite movies of all time, but I love crappy action movie trope, like "The Expendables" I mean come on... so much fun. I also love Miyazaki movies, grew up on them.

I love a lot of music. But my favorites are absolutely the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, The Shins, and Beach House.

And food. I love so many different kinds of food. I can't pick a favorite.
The six things I could never do without
My computer. It's the hub of my social, work, and artistic life.

My guitar. It's been my companion since I've had it, and I don't know where my life would be now with out it.

My water bottle. Water is very important to me. I drink a lot of it.

The internet. I wouldn't be here on this site without it I'll tell you what.

A kitchen. I love to cook, and if I couldn't cook for someone, I would be devastated.

My family. That's the only constant in my life. My family. And I couldn't live without them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future. I know that a lot of people on here want ambitious, driven, successful men. I've got to be honest, I'm not sure what I'm doing yet with my life. Music is a huge part of it, but it's incredibly difficult to make music your living.

I also think about love. All the time. I'm a shameless hopeless romantic, so I have a tendency to get heartbroken often. That's not all bad though, because it's only in those dark emotional times that I'm the most inspired and creative in my music. So if I'm heartbroken? No problem! Listen to the new soothing jams of *insert current ex here* album! Yeah... sometimes I'm "that guy". Not proud of it.
On a typical Friday night I am
That completely depends on who I'm with! I've been known to go out and get schwasty and have a grand ol' time, but I'm just as happy staying in and having wonderful conversations over a good home cooked meal. If I'm lucky I'm playing a show for you to come and see.

It's really what you're in the mood for, because I want my friends to be happy. I'm up for anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've had issues with depression in the past. I'm not perfect. I don't complain about my illness, but it is something that I have struggled with for most of my adult life.

That being said, doesn't mean I don't know how to have fun, or that I don't love myself. ;)
You should message me if are looking to make new friendships, foster new meaningful relationships (most likely platonic) and enjoy the company of someone new.

You should also message me if you'd like for me to cook you dinner, because I would love to cook someone dinner again.

Lastly, if you like pizza, and if we become good friends, then free pizza is in your future.
