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 also learning the code to develop iOS apps. I still have remnants of my former computer geek identity lurking deep in my forebrain.

Ignore that "sex driven" drivel at the bottom...did Freud score my survey or what ?
Let no "algoriddims" breathe stinky on my reputation.
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, ...it's nice and quiet until I plug up and shake the paint off the walls.
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 I bend and hit my note.
-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 if you do then you're just repeating your mommy/daddy patterns and you're not fully self-actualized.
