My self-summary
Hey! How's it going?

I'm a graduate student at the Cleveland Institute of Music where I'm getting my Master of Music degree. I'm from Los Angeles, where I've lived almost my whole life (except for college).

I play the pipe organ, and I'm studying organ performance. Eventually, I want to get a doctorate and work as a church music director or (ideally) the professor of organ at a small college. And relax, I'm not too religious. I just find the music very moving and powerful. You know that stereotype about the guy whistfully saying "Aahhhhh, Bach!!!" while lifting his arm to the heavens? That's basically me. :^P

My bachelor's degree is actually in physics rather than music. I got my bachelor's degree in Cleveland too, at Case Western. I'm glad that I studied physics as an undergrad--it's nice to have floating around in your head, and on occasion it comes in handy.

Let's see. When I'm not frantically practicing, what do I do.... I guess you could say my first love in life was railroads and steam locomotives. I volunteer at a railroad museum maintaining and operating a steam locomotive from 1922, and I'm a federally qualified locomotive engineer. My grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great-grandfather all worked for the Santa Fe Railway, so maybe it's genetic....

I also really like going on random adventures, either in the city or in the mountains or rural highways. I've discovered probably 20 awesome ice cream shops that way, and I've found some beautiful vistas. Sometimes it turns out to be a bit of a misadventure--my friend and I spent New Year's Eve one year stuck in snow on Mt. Gleason, which is north of LA. I don't plan on ever doing that again, but it was definitely worth it once--the sunrise the next morning was amazing!
What I’m doing with my life
Not taking pictures with a cell phone in a mirror.

Also, going to grad school to get my master's degree in organ performance.

Also, working towards the day when I have a doctorate, and people I don't like will have to call me 'Doctor'!
I’m really good at
Listening to people
Being there for my friends
Driving a manual transmission car
Fixing stuff
Knowing where to get good ice cream at 2:38 AM
Laser tag
Historically-informed performance of 18th century German counterpoint. Ya know. Just in case you ever need that....
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure. People tell me a lot that I'm a good listener though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: My favorite composers are Mendelssohn, Haydn, Schubert, and Bach, although Schumann, Vierne, Gounod, and Beethoven are awesome too. I've also been starting to listen to Mozart's music more and more lately. Outside of classical, I really like Johnny Cash. I've got most of his songs memorized.... Oh, and CAKE and They Might be Giants are awesome.

TV: I'm a sitcom addict. Thanks to the wonders of Netflix, I've seen every episode online of How I Met Your Mother, The Office, Parks and Recreation (the awesomest show ever), Better off Ted, and most of Frasier. Because I'm a nerd, I've also seen every episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and every Star Trek movie. The Voyage Home is, of course, the best.

Movies: I love stupid comedies. Some of my favorites are Airplane, Brain Donors, Once Bitten, Slammin' Salmon, Camp Nowhere, The Emperor's New Groove, and Despicable Me 2. I also really like historical and epic movies from the '50s and '60s, like Disney's version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Anastasia with Ingrid Bergman and Yul Brenner. The dialogue in movies was just awesomer back then.

I suppose I could mention this too here. I really like paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries, but I don't know as much about art as I would like. My favorite painters are Ivan Kramskoy, John Singer Sargent, Caspar David Friedrich, and Albert Bierstadt.

Books: I like Kurt Vonnegut a lot, and Terry Pratchett's Discworld books. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card was an awesome book too. Too bad Orson Scott Card kind of went off the deep end....

And food. Ummm. I'm a guy, so I'm pretty much always hungry. I like just about everything, except Vietnamese food. If I had to eat one thing only for the rest of my life, it would definitely be sushi. Or ice cream. But sushi would probably work much better from a long-term standpoint.
The six things I could never do without
My friends.
My car.
Mountains. (Except there aren't any here in Cleveland....)
This is tougher than it seems....
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to see a movie with a friend, or exploring some new highway I haven't been on before. I really don't care for bars or clubs. I'd much rather go for a walk or go explore some random highway to see where I end up.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For the life of me, I cannot figure out what endorsing a check does. I've even asked bank tellers, and it stumps them every time.

  • Near me

3.) You can take a triple integral.
4.) You can explain to me what the heck endorsing a check does....
5.) Please, please, please, you believe in a natural process by which species change and adapt over periods of thousands or millions of years in response to their environment.
