My self-summary
Genuine, intuitive, empathic, and a seeker. Music writing, recording, producing, trading, etc. Religious, spiritual, and philosophical studies. Self-realization. Guilty pleasures. Nature. Art. Animal lover (not currently an owner). Libra. INTJ. No beard. Sometimes sarcastic; always compassionate, honest, and loyal.
What I’m doing with my life
Medicaid systems analysis by day, entrepreneurial pipe-dreams by night.
I’m really good at
Imagining new timbres and sound sequences away from anything that I can capture them with; also not being able to recall them once I am somewhere that I can capture them.
The first things people usually notice about me
Inwardly: Contemplative, calm, open.
Outwardly: Skinny, tattoos, glasses.
I'm not other people, so this is pure conjecture.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My physical bookshelf is loaded with books on esoteric/occult topics as an extension of my Religious Studies concentration in college. I'm particularly interested in perrenialist philosophy, Post-Romantic philosopher poets of Western Europe, Taoism, and the Northern (Scandinavian) Mysteries.

I appreciate modern storytelling, and am a fan of elegantly produced TV shows but I can stoop to lower-brow fare from time to time. I feel like we should all really be trying to watch less TV, read more books, and escape less; so I find myself spending less and less time doing so over the past few years.

My music tastes lean toward the obscure/experimental (see: cassette subculture) - but I do have a wide range of music interests. I'm just as happy listening to a Handel organ concerto as I am with a classic Paul Simon album. Ambient, Minimalism, Ethiopian Jazz, Black Metal, Classical, Dad Rock, Trap, Electronic (non brostep), Psych folk, New Jack Swing. Not into prodigies showing off their chops in almost all contexts other than solo piano.
The six things I could never do without
Water
Air
Earth
Glasses
Yoga
DAW
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The present moment and If I am thinking too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately it has either been improvising weirdo music with my second family or crashing out with a book on Neoplatonism in my lap.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to think I don't have a lot to hide. I also like to think that if we didn't live in the ultra-stratified and materialistic socioeconomic environment that capitalism puts us in, no one would have anything to hide. That might be a little too hopeful, though.
You should message me if
you have the slightest inclination to get to know me better
