I enjoy making music, thinking and reflecting on the world around us. I like to read and am into [[philosophy]], [[history]], [[photography]] and bright ideas that may or may not develop into something tangible. I consider myself honest, compassionate and down to earth. Forever inquisitive. I grew up in both Northern Virginia and Illinois. I signed up for this site a few years back and have neglected it for the most part. Figured I'd come back around and give it another shot.
I am a lifelong learner, not particularly interested in materialistic modes of existence. I can watch TV and keep up with the culture industry with the best of them, but I am seriously looking for someone capable of something more. And I hope you are too.
Making music. [[Audio production]], Dreaming. Sleeping. Not sleeping.. Learning. Researching. Writing. Rhyming. Thinking.Trying to figure out ways of expressing large ideas to even larger groups of apathetic people. Reading. Driving. Perfecting the art of hoop jumping. Shifting paradigms.
In all seriousness and with enough sarcasm and projected confidence to satisfy a cliche and a dating survey at the same time...I'm a good person, grounded by facts and a drive to understand everything I possibly can before our time here is done.
I currently live near Mount Vernon Illinois.
