Italian. Floridian. Hopeful. Manager.
Musician. Songwriter. Concert Promoter.
Adventurer. Pioneer. Traveler. Discoverer.
Loving. Authentic. Caffeinated. Alive.
Life, to me, is made for love, music, fun, and travel. To be happy I don't need people that think, look, feel, or act just like me - only real, authentic, genuine people that are comfortable with their real selves.
I learn from the past, but I don't regret it. I live in the moment, but not for it. I plan for the future, but I try not to worry about it.
Everything else is what I do.
I moved up from Orlando to Indy the August of 2004 and graduated in May of 2008 with my Bachelor's Degree majoring in International Studies. I am a born traveler that loves exploring and language.
I'm General Manager of the fastest-growing, coolest site in Indy (an amazing culture and events guide of everything to do in the city known as Do317 - recently voted Best Local Website) as well as Social Media/Marketing Specialist for concert promoter MOKB Presents. (We book 90% of the concerts in Indy.) There's NEVER a shortage of things going on in Indy! (Especially if your life is music and the arts.)
Movies: I am a huge comedy fan, and will see anything remotely to do with Steve Carrell or Adam Sandler. That said, some of my favorites include Inception, the original Spiderman trilogy, the Iron Man movies, The Avengers, The Next Three Days, A Beautiful Mind, Pleasantville, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom, August Rush, The Day After Tomorrow, and any and all Adam Sandler motion pictures. Even the bad ones. No shame in my game.
Shows: THE WALKING DEAD, Dexter, House of Cards, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon, SNL, Adventure Time, Regular Show, The Adventures of Bubblegum, Robot Chicken, The Office, Community, 30 Rock, American Dad, Family Guy, Seinfeld, That 70's Show, Bob's Burgers, LOST, Big Bang Theory, The League, The Crazy Ones, How I Met Your Mother, The Following, and más!
Food: (Aside from the fact I can't cook anything,) I love most all cultural/ethnic food! Mexican, Sushi, Japanese, Seafood, Steak, Indian, Chinese, Italian, and so on and so forth. I'll try anything at least once. I've always had an unnatural affinity for cereal...and oatmeal. Always and forever. I was born at 12:08 AM so I'm a breakfast guy. It was my first meal!
Music: This is a loaded subject, so I saved it for last! It's my life. I constantly listen to it, write it, play it, or search for new forms of it. I'm a very avid concert-goer. I have a wide-open appreciation for a variety of genres, decades, and styles, but have my favorites. If I tried keeping this updated OK Cupid would prob start charging me for data usage.
Between Indie, Indietronic, and Alternative, I'm pretty much set. I literally WILL listen to anything. At least once. I keep an open mind.
