I still believe in late night conversations at a Waffle House at 2am. I do think there is as much beauty in the grey streets of a metropolis as there is in the quiet mountains.
Life should be explored.
I identify as polyamorous and have a partner that is helping me get back to where I need to be. In turn, I am trying to help her grow into who she wants to be. Translation, we are both sort of mess... but each other's.
My dance card has been rebooted through this reclamation process and am excited at the idea of connecting with healthy and non selfish people.
I am conversation driven, admittedly fickle, and known to wander.
I have been a pizza delivery guy and a bartender before moving into technology.
System administrator, DBA, analyst, project manager. Does any of that do it for you? Yeah... me neither. But I have worked with some amazing people and learned a lot.
I have been an IT Director for a non-profit pysch facility for children. It was probably the most draining job I have ever had.... but by far the most rewarding.
Now I work on the account management side of one of the largest technology companies in the world. If we get a cup of banter set up, I'll tell you all about it.
Travel is happening again. Costa Rica, Cuba and Europe are not safe from me. I might turn up anywhere.
Also,like everyone else,I have a novel that I never seem to get time to finish.
If you want to hear about how I spend my three years of unemployment after the economic implosion of 2009 ... just ask. Not sure if that needs to clutter this up anywhere.
I think H.P. Lovecraft does not get the respect he earned for his writing.
Movies: I love the Coen Brothers...Big Lebowski, Miller's Crossing, O Brother Where Art Thou?, The Hudsucker Proxy. I also love schlocky horror films like Reanimator and The Dunwich Horror.
I also love crime films like The Usual Suspects to the classics like The Godfather.
Music: The Cure, Depeche Mode, Placebo, Josh Jolpin Group, The Decemberists, The Dimes, They Might Be Giants, Interpol, Tom Waits, Concrete Blonde are a few more modern selections...
I also love old blues like John Lee Hooker and Etta James...
Food: Tasty Chinese take out, Lowcountry Cajun, and Italian are my favorites...
2. My laptop
3. Emotions that pick you up and carry you with them
5. The open road
6. Conversations in bed at 3AM
and because I will put whatever I want here
7. The belief that tomorrow could be better than today if you are willing to make it that way.
I think I finally figured this out! I definitely put experiences over material possessions nowadays.
