I graduated from NC State's School of Architecture in 2007, and I completed my Master's degree in furniture design at SCAD this past year. (Hence the name Packdesigner, as in Wolfpack...not handbags...although I do build prototypes of shoes for fashion and accessory design students!). Basically, while I was in school there was absolutely NO time for a social life, but now that I'm out I'm looking to meet new people...who aren't architects. A lot of the friends I made while attending school here have moved away for work, so I'm sort of rediscovering the city from a different perspective now.
I'm in the process of starting my own business here in Savannah, so that's a big part of what I do now. I work full-time at a millwork company running their CNC router production, but I also find myself helping a lot of SCAD students troubleshoot their projects, start their own businesses, learn new skilz, etc. I sometimes co-host a radio show with a friend on the weekend where the show topics vary greatly; Anything from Prince to Muscle Shoals, Soul, Funk, Classic Country, and Protest Music...I think a healthy knowledge of a variety of music is necessary for anyone who might consider himself or herself a "serious musician".
I'm looking for someone who is fun and someone who can carry an intelligent conversation. I love playing the piano and cooking when I get the chance, and I'm hoping to find someone who appreciates these things as well. I've always enjoyed the outdoors and I've always been an active runner. I've been trying to find other team-related things to do in Savannah (kickball, dodgeball), but I haven't had much luck. On that note, my friends in Savannah have described me as extremely easygoing…that is, until they see me involved in any type of competition, at which point I have to explain my “former life”, which included many athletic/competitive endeavors. “You used to play sports? Who Knew?”
My friends and family are very important to me and I think a match should be compatible with the values I hold dear (in other words, after I tell you how important I think it is to be an industrious, hard-working individual and how I'm instantly attracted to women with this trait, don't turn around and tell me how you enjoy being lazy and having people do things for you. I mean, just as an example) . I enjoy volunteering when I get the chance (I didn't have much time in undergrad), and I've coached several rec teams. I like meeting new, open-minded, intelligent individuals. Humor is a sign of intelligence, so if you're not funny, don't bother!
Oh, and also, while there may be a few typos in this post (although I highly doubt it, unless you disagree with my comma usage), I really can't see me dating someone who can't find the time to discover blatant misspellings and/or common misuses of the English language…because that's not attractive at all ;)
