I'm a composer and a flutist, and someday soon I would like to make a living off of music. If you get me talking about music theory, it is difficult to get me to stop.
Other things about me: I like to cook meals from scratch. I walk really fast. I like comics. I have the worst sense of direction of anyone you will ever meet. I spend a lot of time watching kittens frolic on youtube. I am sex-positive but monogamous by personal preference, and I'm the kind of lower-case-f feminist who thinks that the whole idea of gender is essentially bogus.
Right now I wait tables. It is not a job that is well suited to my personality.
TV Shows: Star Trek TOS, Firefly, Futurama, Arrested Development, Bob's Burgers, QI.
Music: Pretty much everything except avant-garde anti-art. My favorite music to play is jazz, and the music I write is classical-ish (tonal but not functional, if you know the jargon. Heavily influenced by Romantic music but with contemporary elements, like most film music.)
Movies: Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds, A Serious Man, Fight Club, Little Miss Sunshine, Clue, O Brother Where Art Thou
