brag: my place

i'm 22, just dropped out of school. the vast majority of my money comes from freelance web work (i'm definitely a losing poker player online, but trying to impreuve) and the firm that i'm in the process of starting up. this is my new home on long island.

beat: still drive a 2004 civic (not a really bad beat though)
brag: it gets 55+ mpg (not a hybrid) in the summer
beat: pictures were taken on my cell phone

living room




deck



my room. pretty bare for now, but art is on the way.

22" widescreen monitors feature emma watson and elisha cuthbert



kitchen



my fav part of the house is the recording studio, which is about 10 steps from my room. drums are tama starclassic (beat: birch not maple), amp is a mesa boogie roadking. guitars l-r are: martin DC15E, yamaha discontinued but good bass, hamer slammer bass, prs mark tremonti model, olp mm1, ibanez rg1820x with piezo, fender strat






in between my room and the studio is another living room area. doors in 2nd photo lead to drum room.



that's it for now

Re: brag: my place

haha i am single.

yes, i play with a band. we're producing an album now but not playing out. (i do all the music, singer is in LA lol). www.redgoodbye.com . it's radio/creed music but that's the kind of music that i like. the music on that site was stuff i produced at school. not nearly as good (quality wise) as what we're churning out now.

ty and ty.

when i was on my own i did strictly LAMP based web development which an emphasis on social networking. now, with this new firm that's starting up, we're focusing on desktop applications too, including a sick new HUD (that is at the very least, 6 months away from even a beta).

Re: brag: my place

freelance web work among other things i don't really want to disclose atm, but web stuff was the majority. i'm really efficient at outsourcing. i do like 35% of my own work and actually just hired an assistant lol. kind of a tim ferriss mindset, but i started 5 years ago.

it's not a vase collection so much as a cabinet (or whatever you call that piece of furniture lol) of family heirlooms. a lot of my family is off-the-boat moroccans and parisans, and somehow i wound up with it. i really suck at decorating so i let others take care of it for me lol, like my father, who wants to make the house as european and jewish as possible. meanwhile his apartment in manhattan has not a spec of euro/jew.

nope, it's a PRS Tremonti model. i tend to shy away from LPs, though they've gotten much better in recent years.

Re: brag: my place

You must be pretty sick at web design.. what do you charge like 600$ a day or smthing?

ps. Do you have rich parents? because i used to work in IT recruitment and it takes most good contractors 5 years high level work experience to get 250-300 per day kinda salaries.

i'm good but not great. my specialty is really efficiently outsourcing stuff, like i said above.

i do have moderately rich parents who, admittedly, have helped me out in acquiring some of the nicer stuff i own.


beat: i get regular, very intense headaches, likely because i stare at monitors for 16 hours a day.

Ok to clarify, for me and the BBV community... How much of this stuff (In $$ Value) have you paid for off your own back?
