My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Composer/musician/teacher. Loves music, bicycles, motorcycles, languages, crossword puzzles, NPR, comedy, movies, maps, geography, LPs, camping.

I might put a shirtless picture of myself on here just because I think it would be funny due to my lack of ab definition.

A year ago I sold my car and bought a motorcycle. It's a lot of fun, and it gets 50 mpg. N.B. Motorcycle suffered some serious engine damage. After taking nearly the whole thing apart, I've almost got it running again. What you can take away from this: I own a LOT of tools, and I can fix a lot of shit.

I'm originally from Northwest Arkansas. I've lived in Baltimore for eight years.

I'm unique, just like everyone else.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching music theory at Johns Hopkins and Towson University, writing music, hanging out with my dog. Update, dog deceased 9/11/13. Very sad about it. I guess see above... Finishing my doctorate in music composition at The Peabody Conservatory.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Again, crossword puzzles, making up and finishing limericks (I have Carl Kasell's voice as my voicemail, from the "Limerick Challenge" on Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!), trivia. Long distance bicycling, I'm not fast, but I like touring. I have twice ridden from Baltimore to my parents' house in Arkansas, once a southern route and once a more northern route that also included riding to New York first. I hope to one day cross the whole country. Snow skiing, but not water. My older sister and her husband have nicknamed me RIG, which stands for random information guy. Apparently I am a fount of random dates, names, and facts. And actually I'm really good at being overly modest. The art of motorcycle mechanics, but no zen.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard, if I have one. When combined with my usual hat, people often say I look like the Gorton's fisherman captain.

Music: Mahler, Scelsi, Berg, Nørgård, Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Messiaen, Lutosławski, Ligeti, Berio, Bach, Shostakovich, Sibelius. Too many composers to list, that is, I feel like people are douche bags when they list a ton of names to seem like they're really smart because they know people/artists/names that other people haven't heard of, so I'll just stop there. And then some non classical stuff: Björk, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Neutral Milk Hotel, Nellie Mckay, Rilo Kiley, Kurt Weill, Fats Waller, Rainer Maria, Arcade Fire, Tim Minchin

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Why would I include that here of all places?

I have not, nor am I likely to ever see Dirty Dancing.
