My self-summary
I'm a teacher. A band director actually; at a junior high school, which is my dream job. I work with 4th-8th grade students.
I have a bachelor's degree in music education, and I've got one more summer to go before I finish my Masters' Program.
Music is my passion - listening, performing, and most definitely teaching. I'm always looking for new music. Although I'm passionate about my music, I believe music is very personal. So I don't push what I like on other people. I say be proud of whatever you love!
I'm a pretty laid back guy. I consider myself to be extremely hardworking and driven, and I feel I give 110% towards my job, family, and friends.
You could call me a hopeless romantic. I am definitely a gentleman. I am looking for a potentially long-lasting relationship.

Avoiding confrontation, but not afraid to stand my ground.
