My self-summary
Let's see... I work as a software engineer in pro audio, which works out pretty well because I'm crazy about music (playing, composing, and listening). I enjoy having passionate conversations about politics, and watching movies (either very good or very bad movies).

I also love singing karaoke, especially at places that have 80s pop metal on their song list. I don't care that it's cheesy. In fact, that makes it better.

My other main interests are jogging, composing music, synthesizers, programming, and classic/niche videogames (yeah, I'm kind of a geek :)). I also like math, but I'm not that great at it. And I try to read literature, but I never seem to have enough time for it all.

Politically, I'm left leaning. And I like cooking-- I can make good matzo ball soup. I enjoy cooking with other people, so if you're into that, that's definitely a plus. I also like to listen to NPR.

I'm looking for someone who is honest and direct; who is passionate about an interest whether it be movies, art, politics, or whatever; and, is at least a little on the intellectual side.

I'm culturally Jewish, but consider myself an atheist. I'm also from a small town, and get along really well with other people who got tired of that small town mindset and moved to the city.
What I’m doing with my life
Hanging out with buddies, finding new trails in the city (or outside the city), looking for good karaoke spots, playing gigs, developing gear used by recording artists on the go, and messing with nerdy projects: writing music software and contributing tunes to indie games. OK, yeah, my existence is pretty music-heavy, no secret there.
I’m really good at
Playing keyboards and piano. But I'm apparently really terrible at taking OK Cupid tests (seriously, I got 'sports dick' for my horrifying stereotype test!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I wear glasses (unlike in half of these profile pics). I also think I can be hard to categorize, and I like it like that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll read anything by Philip K. Dick. I like Douglas Adams, but I also like classic literature from time to time. I really dug The Picture of Dorian Gray, but I have to be in the right mood to read dark Victorian lit. The last thing I read was I Am Legend, and it was great because Richard Matheson is excellent at writing horror. If you don't know who he is, I guarantee you have at least seen movies or shows based on his writing (he was a Twilight Zone contributor, which is his style in a nutshell).

For movies, I'm a huge fan of the Coen Brothers, Alfred Hitchcock, Terry Gilliam movies, and the occasional Hong Kong cop flick or horror movie. When it comes to TV shows, I like Seinfeld, Breaking Bad, Peep Show, Cowboy Bebop, Paranoia Agent, and Star Trek (but selectively; I'm not a trekkie). Lately I've been watching a lot of Mitchell & Webb.

This music list is getting long because I just casually log in and throw something onto the pile every now and then: I like the Beatles, Funkadelic, Depeche Mode, Cee Lo Green, Public Enemy and other early 90's hip hop, Del and Deltron, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Goblin, Kraftwerk, Front 242, Cannibal Ox, Deep Purple, Alice in Chains, Return to Forever, Erik B. and Rakim, Miles Davis, Jean Michel Jarre, Herbie Hancock, Mr. Lif, Iron Maiden, chiptunes, early Soundgarden.
The six things I could never do without
Movies, games, music, family, knowledge, other people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Too much time spent thinking about music, pop culture, science, and politics
On a typical Friday night I am
Chilling out, whichever form that takes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My home decorating skills could use some improvement.
