My self-summary
"The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the "play" instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves." - Carl Jung

I've been working in software development/computer consulting since 1985, and worked for IBM, Wells Fargo/Wachovia, Vanity Fair, et al.
I now spend my life as a member of ASCAP (American Society Of Composers And Publishers). I create music for licensing to film, TV, video games, & web sites. I'm hoping to get back to coding and develop some iOS apps. Not enough hours in the day.
What I’m doing with my life
perpetuating it hopefully...

"goin' where I want,
instead of where I should"

creating music, living a low key, flexible, "tech driven" lifestyle.

I work from my well appointed home studio, dealing with clients that I never meet in person. Working an insular, freelance occupation can drive you nuts, but I'm used to the discipline that music & creative pursuits require. Unfortunately I'm not meeting any door to door saleswomen...and I don't do bar scenes...so I'm back to the online dating sites. My house faces a park with a creek trickling by, populated by university types, dog-walkers and baby-strollers, ...it's nice and quiet until I plug up and shake the paint off the walls. Actually I have tinnitus so volume is a consideration.
I’m really good at
-going up the hill backwards.
-musicianship, I'm a great drummer of some 43 years now and
I'm not bad on bass & keyboards, I'm a sloppy guitarist, but there is magic that happens with all of those lovely strings hit vacuum tubes and a harmonic universe opens up.
-I'm a really good recording engineer & studio muso, placing over twenty-five tracks in Top 10 charts in genres/sub-genres ranging from Electronic Dance to Male Performance to World Beat, Soundtrack & Best Production on Broadjam
-I was certified as a recording engineer when I was 20
-rec'd degree in Electronic Engineering '88, I then attended UNC-G,
A& T State, and UNC-Asheville to study Liberal Arts, Mechanical Engineering & Music/Recording Arts

I was a hell of a good athlete (All City in Ice Hockey, Baseball) as a youngster, and long distance bicyclist in my 20's & 30's.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been complemented on my wit, vocabulary, ability to converse on a wide range of topics...I'm just guessing, I have no idea what ppl really think but I hope it's positive. I don't hog conversation, I'm a great listener, I'm never condescending and I think everyone has something to learn from someone else.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
my interests fit under the "esoterics" umbrella...
I'm a huge movie fan, some tv series', but mostly politics (MSNBC) and documentaries for TV. ...and I'm a big YouTube fan.
The six things I could never do without
Head, hands & feet (drummers need the full complement)...those don't count on my 6, but I thought I'd give them an honorary mention)...Health is everything when you are middle-aged, faith, technology, a firm, warm bed & cool pillow, family/friends, and music sweet music...and someone that's interesting enough to warrant spontaneous periods of daydreaming.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend more time doing than thinking. I'm trying to leave some sort of legacy behind since I have no children...at this time.
On a typical Friday night I am
could be doing mostly anything...or mostly doing nothing...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've had a dozen neurological and orthopedic surgeries from 1992-2008 due to sports injuries, 4 on my spine. So, I've got a bit of a hitch in my giddy-up (but that's what meds are for !). Due to age & the trauma of the spine surgeries, the topography of my spine has rendered me 4+" shorter than I was a decade ago (yes my ego suffers). See the pic with my mom, she was no midget, it's just that I was nearly 6 ft tall then. I'm having a very serious surgery that will correct the curvature of my spine and give me back the height that is now compromised.
You should message me if
you're looking for a friend, and you are a realist, you have your own hobbies and interests. i do best with women that have no kids or grown kids. but that's your call...I have flexible hours also...if you have any questions plz ask. I don't lie, or use ppl. It's been close to 6 years since I've been really close to someone. I don't care if you drink and swear, or roll yer own and tell dirty jokes. I've dated all sorts, including a blackout drunk, and a stone reefer-headed woman...I love interesting ppl with a good head on their shoulders, and interesting iTunes libraries. I don't have "deal breaker" lists and I love fit women with hourglass figures. from Petites to Amazons...the face is the real attraction. I love flaws, they give one a depth of personality.
