My self-summary
In a committed but non-restrictive relationship. Not bored. Not creepin'. I just didn't give up the part of myself that enjoys meeting new people and having new experiences. I'm pretty chill about most things.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in technology companies, solving problems of various sorts. I'm also a music journalist and editor of a music site, so I spend a lot of time working on that, even though it doesn't pay the bills. Gotta have something you love.

I am a bit of a home body during the week, but on weekends I like to get out and about around town. I go to a lot of shows, so when I'm not out at a show, writing a review, or transcribing an artist interview, I enjoy laying low at home and working on music or practicing DJing.
I’m really good at
Staying positive when the chips are down. Finding solutions to technology problems. Advising people who "aren't really into" beer, whiskey, wine, or coffee; and helping them find something they enjoy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty tall, so that's a thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Silas Marner, The Phantom Tollbooth I sort of fell off reading books for a few years, but now I'm starting to pick things back up again. Feels good, man.

Movies: The Constant Gardener, Meet Joe Black

Shows: Arrested Development, Bob's Burgers, Chapelle's Show, Firefly, Top Gear, Wildboyz

Music: 30 Seconds to Mars, Bat For Lashes, The Beatles, Boston, Broken Bells, Chromeo, Crystal Castles, A Day To Remember, The Devil Wears Prada, Dr. Dre, Eisbrecher, Ellie Goulding, Emery, Eminem, Feeder, Feist, Florence + The Machine, Freelance Whales, fun., Geographer, Gorillaz, Imogen Heap, Ira Atari, Kanye West, The Killers, Kylie Minogue, Lady Gaga, Ladytron, LCD Soundsystem, LIGHTS, Lil Wayne, M83, Mackintosh Braun, Massive Attack, Mastodon, Metallica, Metric, MGMT, Mumford & Sons, Muse, A Perfect Circle, Pink Floyd, The Postal Service, Rammstein, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, The Shins, Starfucker, The Submarines, Sum 41, System of a Down, T.I., TOOL, UnderØath.

Food: I think Atlanta is the most under-rated city in the world considering how much incredible, international food we have here. I've started cooking at home more, but when I get out, I often like to try something new.
The six things I could never do without
* Smoked salmon
* Incense
* Live music
* Sticky buds
* Shoulder rubs
* Wikipedia
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Technology industry crap, music industry crap, this election bullshit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either in or out. Probably doing something related to music in either case.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own DVDs I've never seen. That's pretty dumb, really.
You should message me if
You're tired of just replying to messages and want to start your own conversation.
