My self-summary
Hey, my name's Jordan.

The last several years of my life have been a blur of different places literally around the world, and I've had a lot of good experiences because of it. But recently I've started wanting to settle down and finally start building my life and future here in Raleigh. That also would ideally mean I find a long term, meaningful relationship with a special woman that I could eventually call my wife.

First off, I try to be a pretty happy person. I'm laughing and joking all the time, and definitely try not to take things too seriously unless I have to. It's really hard to offend me, and I very rarely get stressed. That being said, there are still many aspects of my life that I'm passionate about, and that define who I am at the core.

For instance, I am a Christian, and serious about my faith. I believe in not having sex until marriage, and am looking for a Christian woman who is also saving herself. I am also a professional musician, and highly value personal expression. I try to enjoy people's creations for not just their entertainment value but also for their artistic value, and what ideals or meaning they may represent.

On a lighter note, I'm a big nerd, and love stuff like reading, playing video games, watching anime, karaoke, and being a big dork with friends. I am a very affectionate person; It's how I show love, and how I feel most appreciated. So if you like hugging, touching, kissing, holding hands, etc., then we're already speaking the same language. I love to laugh, and usually can enjoy being silly and comfortable with the simple, fun things that keeps my inner child alive. :)

There are a lot of things about me I'm sure I forgot, or that would take too long to explain in this short introduction, but let's get to know each other! :) I'm extremely open, so feel free to ask whatever you'd like, and start a great conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently moved back home to North Carolina from New York. As a musician, I was looking for career opportunities there, but in the end it was simply too expensive, and the local opinions and politics didn't appeal to me. I'm making an effort to really get my musical career going though, and I will be looking for local performance opportunities after I get settled in. The last few years before I moved to New York, I performed music on cruise ships, but now that I have moved here I will be looking for local work in the area.
I’m really good at
Discussing Ideas
Having fun

I'll add more as I think of them. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile and laugh a lot, and have a very positive, laid-back personality. Also, I guess a lot of people point out that I'm tall (6'2")
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
His Dark Materials trilogy (Philip Pullman)
The Inheritance Cycle (Christopher Paolini)
Several books by C.S. Lewis (Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity, The Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, etc.)
The Song of Ice and Fire (George R. R. Martin)
The Harry Potter series (J.K. Rowling)
The Mistborn Trilogy (Brandon Sanderson)
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (J.R.R. Tolkein)
Orion (Ben Bova)
Ender's Game (Orson Scott Card)
Othello (William Shakespeare)

I could go on, seriously, if you can't tell I LOVE reading. LOL. But generally I tend to enjoy Sci-Fi and/or Fantasy books the most. :)

Pretty much anything directed by Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, The Cat's Return, Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, etc.)
Pretty much anything from Pixar
(If you can't tell by now, I really tend to love animated films)
District 9
The Hangover

I can't think of anymore right now, but I know there are plenty I'm forgetting...


As far as TV shows, I don't really watch a lot of TV these days. I do watch a TON of anime though (That list would be way too long, so if you want to know, just ask) But the last few TV shows that I REALLY enjoyed were/are

Avatar: The Last Airbender
Adventure Time
Planet Earth

All over the place really.

Videogame and Movie soundtracks/scores
Japanese music (traditional and contemporary)

Honestly, a bit of everything. The only genres I tend to dislike are Rap, and Contemporary R&B. Though I enjoy some of the rhythms and musical aspects of the genres, the messages/subjects of many of these songs cause me to lose respect for otherwise promising musical talent. And specifically with Rap, I find many songs musically lackluster; they provide very little musical creativity or variety, lack talented vocalists, etc.

Anyways, I graduated with a degree in Jazz Studies, so I could probably talk to you all day about different musical styles and concepts, so I'd better stop here for now. :p
The six things I could never do without
Affection (I'm a huge cuddle bug)
The Internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Recently, I've been thinking about the direction I want to go in life, and what I can do to realize my goals.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working, chilling out at home playing videogames, hanging out with friends, or playing Jazz on my saxophone for a local restaurant or other venue. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Why don't you ask me a question about anything and I'll answer honestly? :) I don't have too much that I keep secret, so ask whatever you want, no matter how private/embarrassing.
You should message me if
If you're interested in starting a relationship with me, the biggest thing I'm looking for is a woman that is Christian, and saving sex for marriage. Other than that, read my profile, check out my interests, look at the questions I've answered, and if you think we'd be a good match, then talk to me! :)
