If you take a look at my previous photos, you'll see that I had(for quite a long time) long hair and a beard. I felt like a change and cut it all off. So far I'm liking the cleaner-cut look, but I'm sure I'll change it up in the future.
I like intellectual discourse and debate. It's how we learn more and how we gain perspective. Even if it's about something silly, I love a good debate. I'm heavily driven by the basic philosophy of all the sciences: take in new information, re-evaluate. I'm always trying to change for the better. I like hearing new opinions, doing new things, going new places. I never know what I'll like until I try it. Challenge me! Dare me to do something new, take a new risk, look at things in a different way.
I just graduated from a lutherie school, having made four guitars. I work part-time at Sam Ash Music and do freelance guitar repair on the side. I hope to have a successful custom guitar shop one day. Occasionally I play bass trombone in a volunteer jazz band, the Cincinnati Jump & Jive Show Band. Other than that, I practice trombone/alto sax/guitar, play video games or read.
Update: My guitar-building business has started, and I'm currently working on my first prototype. Look up Ivaldi Guitars on facebook to see what's going on!
I build and play guitar(about 7 or 8 years now), amongst the myriad other instruments I play. I'm fairly musically inclined. I have built two electric guitars, an acoustic, an archtop, and otherwise I own two more electric guitars and three electric basses. My life may turn into an episode of Hoarders, but with guitars.
