Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, been some years since I've last been on one of these sites so
here we go:
I'm here to meet and hopefully get to know some new people. Just
testing the waters. Born and raised in Grand Rapids. I love this
town and Michigan in general. From Michigan's outdoors to GR being
a "small town wrapped up in a big package," just love it. Helps
that all my family and a ton of my friends are here too; couldn't
be without them.
I've been playing guitar for the past 20 years. I also really enjoy
singing, playing the mandolin, the bass and pedal steel guitar.
Music is a huge part of life my and is my vocation.
I love staying active, I love the outdoors and when I'm not playing
music I'm a fly fishing nerd. I also enjoy running/jogging, fitness
(even though I'm not a health nut), reading, cooking for others and
spending quality time with my family and friends.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a full-time musician and have been so for the last 10 years. I
absolutely LOVE it! I work as a side/ session musician in West
Michigan. I front a local cover band, work as a musician with the
Circle Theater and also work with 3 or 4 other bands as an on-call
guitar player. Anything from blues/soul, r&b, country, rock
etc....I love to play it all. Played with a lot of different people
and have seen a lot of different places over the years with music
(now I'm sounding like an old man).
I love to teach people and during the week I teach guitar lessons
through a music shop and privately. I've even "guided" a few people
on fly fishing trips. I just get the biggest thrill out of someone
enjoying something new that I'm passionate about.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I love reading non-fiction books. I'm a sucker for biographies
(musical and historical figures), books about Everest, K2,
WWII,....nerdy stuff. Oh, and I love to read my Michigan Gazetteer
(I love maps).
I enjoy Christopher Guest movies (Spinaltap, A Mighty Wind), Cohen
Brothers movies (Big Lebowski, Fargo, No Country for Old Men). I
thought Lincoln was great.
Breaking Bad, Idiot Abroad (love that English humour), old
Simpsons, King of the Hill, and Da Ali G Show round out my
Listen to way too much music to list everyone I like. Some of my
favorite albums would have to be, Making Movies (Dire Straits),
Voodoo (D'angelo), Continuum (John Mayer), and Closing Time (Tom
Waits). I'm on a Hall and Oates kick right now though.
Love to try new foods, I'm really into: Thai, Sushi, Indian,
Mediterranean, seafood, Creole, Spanish, authentic Mexican and
Ethiopian. I can also whip up a mean Spinach and Zucchini soup from
