My self-summary
I'm originally from Western NY State, and moved here for work and family back in late 2012. I've been focusing on getting myself situated since then, and now feel about ready to start putting myself back out there. (And could use a tour guide to show me what I've been missing.)

I like to listen to, play, and record music - I used to be a studio recording engineer professionally, but I needed a life outside of work, which that job didn't allow for, so I left that behind and moved on. I've also played various instruments in in bands (which would be great to get back into).
I have an wide range of musical preferences - 70's folk, 80's pop, 90's alternative, hard rock, metal, industrial, funk, hip hop. Granted, I'm probably living in the wrong part of the country, since the only country music I like is Johnny Cash, Alison Krauss and Union Station, and a couple EmmyLou Harris albums.

I like to create, tend to, and improve things... such as landscaping/gardening, creating software, making graphics & html pages... and woodworking is an interest I'd like to pick up on.

I'm self-sufficient, own a house, car, pets, and hold down a steady job that pays for it all.

I want to meet someone who is smart and capable, doesn't play head games, will always be upfront and honest, and isn't materialistic. I'm fiercely loyal to my friends, family and significant other, and expect the same in return. I'm not a paying subscriber here, so I can't read or send e-mails through match, nor see who's liking my pics or adding me as a favorite.

What I’m doing with my life
Hopefully, contributing positively to the world in one small way or another...
The first things people usually notice about me
No clue - I don't ask them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Celestine Prophecy (series), Steven King... do audio trade magazines count?

Movies: Suspense, Thrillers, Sci-Fi (but not SyFy SciFi)... or on the flip side, really anything that makes you walk away feeling different than when you walked in. A movie you can identify with, and that can evoke some emotion from you.

Shows: I don't watch too many TV shows... but when I do (I drink Dos Equis) it's usually escapism kind of stuff (like something to let you cool down from a long day and get you out of that "work mode" state of mind).

Food: meat and potatoes... Spicy things, Mexican... Anything with tons of flavor. I love to make odd concoctions. Ever try cinnamon and beer in your chili? How about fresh chopped mint in a spicy mexican dish? Brown sugar and bourbon -marinated skirt steak? Jalapeno ginger lemonade? Fennel-brined, pecan-crusted chicken? (or maybe a paprika rub and orange sauce) ...Got you hungry yet?
The six things I could never do without
An outlet for creativity
Sustenance (we'll just lump together food, water, air...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's next.
On a typical Friday night I am
wondering what can be done to make it atypical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
...That I don't like to publicly admit private things???
You should message me if
you dig me.
