Currently I am devoting my life to helping people express themselves freely through the experience of making music with mobile devices.
I sometimes build custom Talkboxes so I can do random public performances of Daft Punk's Harder Better Faster Stronger and my love for Betabrand disco fabric clothing is getting a bit out of hand (no I don't work there, just enjoy their ridiculous threads). Put these things together and what do you get? This: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXzPEpn0Fco
THINGS I LIKE TO DO
Other than following my passion for music technology and people, I enjoy being outdoors, biking, hiking, traveling to far off lands, cooking as well as eating delicious food, and doing pretty much anything with no particular agenda beyond having the most interesting and high quality experience possible (whatever that means). I thoroughly enjoy learning about other cultures and people in general, so I often times will ask more questions about someone than provide information about myself, but you wouldn't know that based on the length of this self-summary. I prefer to gain knowledge of the world through talking to people about their experiences, which means I don't read books very often.
Lastly, I'm an efficiency junky. If something can be optimized, I will be there to help make it so! Of course the length of this profile would prove otherwise.
Outside of that I like to go on as many adventures as possible and optimize things.
Oh man! I love all the musics! 80's Disco-Funk, R&B, Folk, Power Pop, Good Music. Anything that blends real instruments and electronics well and makes me want to dance. For Example: Kimbra, Geographer, Vacationer, Blackstreet, Zapp and Roger, Chromeo, Sucré, Bonobo, Dogg Master, Bon Iver, Jellyfish, Mint Condition, R. Kelly, The Gap Band, Michael Jackson, Musiq Soulchild, Bjork, Haley Bonar, Alison Krauss, Devin the Dude, Andre 3000, Big Boi...and lately I've really been digging the J-Pop producer Yasutaka Nakata who does stuff for Perfume and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.
He produced this track and the video is just unbelievably adorable:
MOVIES: to be honest watching movies isn't one of my strengths.
I do like Groundhog Day (the greatest love story of all time), Anything with Arnold Schwarzenegger (GET TO DA CHOPPAAAAA!!!), The Big Lebowski, Pulp Fiction, Forest Gump, Death Race 2000 (the original), Willow, Royal Tennenbaums
SHOWS: also don't watch much TV (always room for improvement!)
I do like Star Trek (TOS mostly but i very much appreciate them all), Arrested Development, GoT, Things on the Internet
Right now I'm vaguely following the Paleo thing (startup + guy == paleo) since it's all the rage and no one has any solid evidence one way or the other. I am actually learning a lot about food lately and have become a big fan of making my own meals.
When I don't eat only Meat, Veggies, and fruit I prefer the very occasional Chicken And Waffles, Fried Bananas, and almost all Asian Cuisine (I particularly enjoy Bibimbap, Ramen, HotPot (Little Sheep or at home), and anything my Vietnamese friend's mother makes. (she always makes ridiculously good stuff).
BOOKS: another of my less frequent activities.
"The History of Death: Burial customs and funeral rites, from the ancient world to modern times" (Quite an interesting read. Amazing what you can find out about a culture by the way it treats death)
Head, Shoulders, knees and toes (knees and toes, knees and...)
Lists about things I could never do without
How to make each situation more entertaining
Optimizing everything (part of the pro-efficiency movement)
Advancing my skill-set
Bicycling around Australia
If OK Cupid is really a worthwhile endeavor. sigh....
I lied about one of the things in the "My details" section.
Fun fact though: I've played bagpipes since age 9
Doesn't mind buying or cooking dinner, likes to go on adventures of all kinds, is creative and expressive, loves making and listening to music, and enjoys a deep conversation as much as talking complete nonsense (Did I mention I enjoy bullshitting?).
Oh also, an appreciation of physical fitness and general interest in maintaining a healthy mind/body/spirit is a must.
You want to go on a bike ride and eat somewhere new or attempt to cook a delicious dish.
Let's have fun!
