My self-summary
Conversation over texting

Witty banter is overrated, real talk not

Smart + sweet + swag

Anyone who knows me would say I am a very nice and giving person, but I'm also rough around the edges. Part of it is the NYer in me but not all of it. You'll find me to be mad passionate, outgoing, worldly, assertive, nerdy, chill, friendly, and silly when needed.

Attracted to intelligence and folks with a bit of an edge or complexities. Also gravitate toward those passionate about something meaningful, and ideally are willing to talk about it together. If you're not so vocal I love making good connections with new people often anyway and while am not trying to talk trash, I'm good conversationalist. If you are unique and a bit eccentric, nerdy or an outsider that's also a win but doesn't have to mean how you dress gives it away.

P.S. A willingness to bug out is a plus. I'm a Virgo so needing to let loose sometimes is good for us.
What I’m doing with my life
LMSW working to address systemic inequities in education in a high school and still combating neoliberalism in my sleep.

Run a vinyl record label, producing mostly American sounding deep house and techno, while deeply involved in hip-hop and other electronic music as I've been DJing since I was 18.
I’m really good at
Being direct, honest, listening, friendly, distracted, starting and holding a conversation with anyone, intuitiveness, perceiving, analyzing, observing, some language/voice impressions, being utterly ridiculous and laughing when needed.

Most "black music," in general

anything with a strong rhythm or soul attracts me.

Yet, I grew up playing violin and sang in the Metropolitan Opera as a child so make of that what you will.

Cooking:

Love cooking, and for others, but I take forever to make things. I'm open minded about new food, but baby bird in an egg as a "delicacy" is probably where I have to draw the line (Yes, I tried it).
The six things I could never do without
Creative outlets, real talk, sunlight in my eyes, warm weather, learning, traveling without being a tourist, some mfin' inspiration
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, the present and the past
On a typical Friday night I am
DJ seshining with friends at my apartment, producing music, dancing in a dark room, watching a film or TV show, enjoying thoughtful conversations with whoever's willing, cooking or ordering a tasty meal followed by a stiff drink...
You should message me if
You're found or lost...or just curious
