I'm into hiking, disc golfing, art, film, improv, retro video games, renaissance, ancient history, and almost anything having to do with science, fictional science, or straight up fantasy.
Back in high school, I started taking classes in Kung Fu and instantly fell in love with the style. It guided me through difficult times, and gave me a glimpse of my own potential. I had never really applied myself up until that point, so this was like opening the floodgates of focus. I dove head first into the art, and continue to train in kung fu to this day...just laying that on the table, haha. I may risk sounding like a motivational speaker, but starting Kung Fu was one of the best decisions I've ever made. It gives me the drive to set knew increasingly difficult goals for myself physically, mentally and spiritually.
Music is another passion of mine, and I don't use that word lightly. Music truly is the voice of the soul. It gives us a way to connect with others by using sounds to convey our emotions, and can tell us a lot about who we are. I play the drums, mandolin, and piano in my band Fade Up Fade Out Bye Bye. I'll admit, we're kind of fucked up sounding, haha. If I had to describe our sound I would say it's similar to Frank Zappa. We're like a jazz/funk/rock band that doesn't mind throwing some hip hop/blues/french café in there.
