I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, but am now stuck here in northern Virginia!
I'm a music fanatic, primarily indie rock and all of its many derivatives. I've played the drums for 17 years, though I'm currently on a hiatus from it (more on that below).
I enjoy a good adventure. I love road tripping, camping, hiking, anything outdoors basically. I'm big into fitness whether it's running, weightlifting, crossfit, etc.
I like cars. Stick shift and made in Germany is the only way to go.
I joined the Marine Corps at 25. I'm probably the most un-military military guy ever, aside from the haircut and being in good shape (I was into fitness way before I joined).
I worked as a music instructor for about 5 years prior to joining the ever delightful Marine Corps. I played in bands for a lot of years and got to travel all over the country and record a few solid albums.
Other than that, I take a pretty lighthearted approach to life. I'm extremely sarcastic, and I try to find humor in everything. I really believe that having a sense of humor is the only way to make it through this world. I enjoy Belgian and craft beers, going to shows and taking my dog to the dog park. Exciting stuff, I know. If you want to know anything else, just ask!
