My self-summary
I am a rational, value-oriented, and down-to-Earth SWM looking for a long-term relationship with the possibility of marriage. I've lived most of my life on the East Coast, but I've been out here in Southern California for about 15 years.

I also have a work background in music since I did live concert engineering and I've also worked behind the scenes in college radio. I've listened to most every major style of music, so my favorites aren't limited to a particular style. I do tend to listen to contemporary music more often.

I'm a long-time Objectivist NOT a Libertarian! What this really means is that I'm more interested in connecting the why to the how rather than just advocating for taking particular actions regardless of motives.

I tend to be opinionated, but I keep my opinions to myself unless queried. I have long-term goals, but I think I've become a bit better at setting interim steps.
What I’m doing with my life
I make money trading securities. (It's the best job I've ever had!) I have great independence and flexibility, but I have to stay on my toes if I want to make the most of my portfolio. I'm finding that in the course of my work, I'm getting a good overview of how the world works. Consequently, I'm a bit better informed on economics, politics, and culture.

I'm also back in school studying computer programming for a second Bachelor's degree or a Master's degree. I'm also trying to continue with musical work.

I moved into a different part of Orange County and got a house for rent!!! I'm still house and car shopping.
I’m really good at
writing and day trading!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: ..not enough favorites, but some are _Atlas Shrugged_ and _The Fountainhead_ by Ayn Rand. I used to read Arthur C. Clarke as a schoolkid, but I lost interest in his work, so I guess I need to catch up on Robert Heinlein's work.... It's been awhile since I read anything by John Waters, but I swear that _Crackpot_ is the funniest book I've ever read!

Movies: ...not enough favorites, but _The Mask of Zorro_ is my #1 favorite of the past dozen years or so. I also love _Blade Runner_, early James Bond movies, early Mel Brooks movies are good as far as comedy goes....

Music: ...maybe too many?!? Again, I've heard thousands of bands, but these days, I mainly listen to Italian and Japanese progressive rock as well as DEATH & TAXE$ (with Tom Shannon), FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM, KING CRIMSON, TANGERINE DREAM, and Klaus Schulze. (_Farscape_ seems like it will be okay, but it's not going to be the best work for either Schulze or Lisa Gerrard.)

Food: Yes, please... I mainly prefer American, Italian, Thai, and Indian, but I've tried many other cuisines.

Television: I watch financial programming (of course) and some sports (but overwhelmingly tennis.)

I used to watch (in no particular order):
_Nash Bridges_
_Mythbusters_ (though I don't care for the newer engineers)
_Magnum P.I._
_Hawaii 5-0_ (the original series, of course!)
_Monty Python's Flying Circus_
_The Vicar of Dibley_

Really, any BBC comedy is likely to be worth watching. (By the way, I consider BBC news to be mildly interesting though it's patently hard Leftist propaganda!)
Six things I could never do without
If we're talking about things as in _objects_ (as opposed to traits, etc.), then the most important things would include (in no particular order): 1) Computer technology 2) Audio recording technology 3) Books

I spend a lot of time thinking about
work, romance, and the state of the nation.
On a typical Friday night I am
financial data collecting, reading online, writing code, and listening to streaming Internet music.
