My self-summary
Music is what really makes me tick and is my true passion in life. I'm most at home on a stage or in the studio.

We have only so many fucks to give in life so I try to reserve mine from when giving a fuck is truly called for. I call this Millennial Zen, which is a thing I just now came up with and will probably be starting a cult any day now.

I'm a huge fan of shitty puns and witty banter.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, playing music as often as possible, traveling when I can, surrounding myself with good friends. Engaging in general shenanigans.
I’m really good at
Melting faces with a guitar.

I'd like to think I'm good at making people laugh although you must have a deeply sarcastic sense of humor for this to apply.

Also, I kick ass as a friend. I have a cynical streak and sometimes have trouble making deep connections with people but if I like and trust you I will give you the shoes off my feet in the dead of winter.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm awesome? I honestly have no idea. Probably depends on the person and the situation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Good lord, this is going to take forever. Let's start with what's imporant...music: Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Sly and the Family Stone, Bela Fleck, Isley Brothers, Gap Band, Donny Hathaway, Roberta Flack, Jaco Pastorius, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, Zapp & Roger, Jay Z, Brother Ali, De La Soul, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Pharcyde, James Brown, Otis Redding, Shuggie Otis, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Galactic, Greyboy Allstars, Medeski Martin and Wood, The Meters, Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, Radiohead, Tortoise, any 90s grunge artist, many others...

TV: The Wire, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Community, Parks and Recreation, Eastbound and Down, Curb Your Enthusiasm, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Arrested Development, The Simpsons, South Park, Treme, Game of Thrones, Deadwood, Dexter, Twin Peaks...

Food: Yes, please. Lately I've been on a Southwestern/Mexican kick but I love Mediterranean, Thai, Indian, Italian, good old fashioned American comfort food... fried chicken and waffles is one of the best food trends to make a resurgence in recent years. Pho is pretty much the greatest dish ever created by man. Basically, I will eat anything as long as it's well-prepared with quality ingredients.

Books: Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, Robert Anton Wilson, Charles Bukowski, Chuck Palahniuk, Ken Kesey, Cormac Mcarthy, Malcolm Gladwell, many others... I've been on a musical biography kick lately - Miles Davis, Keith Richards and Nile Rodgers are some standouts. Currently re-reading Infinite Jest but I swear I'm not a pretentious hipster.

Movies: Coen Brothers, Stanley Kubrick, Judd Apatow (getting a little unoriginal lately though with the bromance genre), Tarantino, Scorsese, Godfather (parts 1 and 2 only, of course), Wes Anderson, Charlie Kaufman, etc
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All manner of random shit. Topics include but are not limited to: Music (specifically trying to figure out how I can write and/or play more of it on a daily basis), how badly I need a vacation and where I'm going to go when I finally find the time, whether our society is truly the mind-boggling clusterfuck that a cursory glance at google news would lead one to believe, what I'm going to eat that day, how I'm realistically going to cram all of the things I want to do into the 4-6 hour window between work and sleep....
On a typical Friday night I am
Preferably seeing live music somewhere and/or intoxicated at one of DC's many fine drinking establishments. Current favorites are Red Derby, Wonderland, Looking Glass... pretty much anywhere slightly divey with a beer + shot combo option. Either that or playing guitar and binge watching TV.
You should message me if
You have a sense of humor/don't take yourself too seriously.

You find the whole online dating thing as weird yet intriguing as I do.

You know of a good show coming up or band I should check out.

You're down to grab a casual no-expectations drink somewhere and see if we get along. I greatly prefer meeting someone in person as opposed to a bunch of online back-and-forth.
The two of us
