My self-summary
Ambiguously foreign composer, hip-hop producer and music teacher. Part-time collector of animal facts, dry humorist and bad guitarist.

I'm good-natured, outgoing, inevitably cheerful, disciplined and in endless pursuit of new experience.

Turn-ons include witty banter, practical shoes, competence, tattoos, side-shaves, intelligence, shameless flirting, clear boundaries, and smashing the patriarchy. 🔥

In a long-term non-monogamous relationship. Available for drinks, dating, conversation and ongoing relaxed hedonism.

What I’m doing with my life
Leading a band, writing an album and teaching music. Doing a lot of camping, traveling around the US, and exploring the Bay Area.

I’m a recent immigrant and love people, so I’m actively building a community for myself here. I have enough close friends to be happy, and space in my life for a few more.

I’ve only just begun to date actively, so I’m a trifle clumsy. It’s best seen as endearing?
I’m really good at
Straddling the fine line between impulsivity and competence.

Organizing other people into modular music-creating units.

Humour so subtle only my favorite people notice.
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent. Good luck guessing it!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love art and can talk about it endlessly, but listing it on the internet isn't great.

That being said, I love soul, hip-hop, funk, R&B, jazz and experimental electronic music. Lately I've been rocking out to Hiatus Koyote, Flying Lotus, D'Angelo and Lorde.

Authors I love include K.J Bishop, Jeff Vandermeer, Thomas Pynchon, Cormac McCarthy and David Foster Wallace.
The six things I could never do without
Attachment is the root of all suffering?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music production, composition, songwriting, music theory. I'm ... focused.

Social justice
People I like
Things I haven't done before
Books
Pokemon

I'm trying to work out a comfortable intersection between my politics and my art. We might have a platform one day, and that comes with responsibilities.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a concert or rave, hosting a dinner party, on a date, or leaving the city entirely. At heart I'm a hedonist and love meeting interesting strangers in badly-lit places.

Sadly, I'm at my most functionally creative at 7am, so late nights have become a special event, until I win that first Grammy or whatever. #adulting
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This profile represents a working compromise between my belief that I can best represent myself with honesty and vulnerability, and my desire to seem cool.

Asking me questions about being a musician makes me feel good about my life choices.
You should message me if
You’re looking for expectation-free hangouts that can naturally develop into whatever they want to be. Options include: dating, life-long enemies, blood brothers, and distant acquaintances. Obviously I’m hoping to get laid, but that’s only one of several priorities.

You're smart, adventurous, organized, vivacious, outspoken, confident and honest.

You're down with open relationships. I have an amazing wife you might meet.

Maybe you're a secretly a little bit of a sub?

(Definitely not related to dating: you want to talk music in a deep, complicated kind of way)
