My self-summary
I don't have A-List, so if you "like" my profile, I won't be able to see it. Send me a message instead! :)

I'm Clyde. I'm here to meet, connect, and have some fun adventures along the way.

I'm a musician. Born and raised in Brooklyn, and I wouldn't live
anywhere else!

If you seem cool and interesting, I'll send you a message and we'll
meet up for some good food, good drinks, and some great

Of course, if you want to send ME a message, I won't complain!

For those of you who pay attention to this, I'm an ENTP.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a freelance trumpet player. I play anything from classical to
rock to funk to jazz. I also have 10 trumpet students (when they aren't away for the summer), and I'm a music librarian (it's as non-glamourous as it sounds). I also wrote an incredible (hopefully, haha) symphony, maybe I'll
let you hear it. :D

I live with my best friend and it's awesome.
I’m really good at
Playing trumpet, teaching music, having fun, being funny, putting a smile on no matter what! Some sports, board games, etc. I'm usually willing to try anything!
The first things people usually notice about me
How big my smile is. Cheesy, but people are always telling me about what a cheerful face I have.

The six things I could never do without
My trumpet/performing/music in general
Mom's cooking (which I miss dearly)
The internet
My family/friends
The various "chicken" impressions of the Bluth Family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to put the final tweaks on my symphony, and what I'm going to write next. Any suggestions on what my next piece should represent?

Why the creators of informercials think that people will actually sit through them.

Why I'm always up late enough to watch horrible infomercials.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out on the town with my friends or playin a gig.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a HUGE music nerd.

That sounds like nothing, but you should see me at a NY Philharmonic concert...
You should message me if
You're an intelligent, sweet, and fun lady who can hold her own in a conversation :)

I'm 420 friendly, but it's not something I do everyday or need to do.

You like to drink. Not like a frat boy, but you should at least appreciate a good beer or cocktail.

You have a profound appreciation for music.

I only care so much about match percentages. I've met 95+% matches who turned out to be boring in person, and I've met women who were a 65% match or less that I've had wonderful dates with. It's all about getting to know someone.
