Right now, my passions are my career and my commitment to getting in shape. I've been a musician (saxophone, percussion and guitar) for 12 years and I really believe that music can change the world. I dream of being in a metal or rock band and touring the world. As for getting in shape, I have been committed to taking care of my body for the past 2 years. A few years ago friend of mine in college got me into the healthy lifestyle that I live now.
It takes a while for me to warm up to someone; I'm very shy. When I feel comfortable, I start to joke a lot and hone in on things that make people laugh. I'll do just about anything for a quick laugh.
Socially, I hang with tight knit groups of people. I really enjoy spending time with my friends, even if that time is spent doing relatively nothing. I love to talk about anything and everything, especially about what makes people tick.
I'm also really good at origami and board games. I can make just about anything with enough time. Would you help me make a pretty bunch of paper animals and scenery that would go together well? Or challenge me to any board game you're into? They have a few at Tate Street Coffee, where I go sometimes to relax.
Favorite movies: The Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather, Kill Bill, The Prince of Egypt, The Grave of the Fireflies
Favorite Shows: House, Cowboy Bebop, Bizarre Foods, The Simpsons, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Breaking Bad
Music: Coheed & Cambria, Protest the Hero, Between the Buried and Me, Prince, Lamb of God, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Slayer, In Flames, Red Hot Chili Peppers
Food: I love food of all sorts. The more exotic the better. My tongue is brave and I enjoy learning new flavors.
6. Playing games of any sort (board, card, traditional)
I feel that relationships are not only important for finding out about another person but also as important for discovering yourself. That's why I reflect on the past ones I've had to figure out how I've changed.
I'm also an experimenter with mixed drinks so my friends and I will attempt to make a new drink with whatever random things we feel inspired to try.
Also, I am polyamorous and in a successful long distance, long-term relationship. Polyamory is the best thing to happen to me.
I'd love to take you to a coffee shop (Tate Street Coffee) when there is a jazz band there. Or maybe Total Wine for wine tastings. There are also very cool Vietnamese places that I really enjoy around here too.
I'm usually at College Hill on $1 beer nights, so you might catch me there.
