My self-summary
I'm incredibly driven to change the world for the better through arts and arts education. I live to perform. The stage is my temple. Music is my higher power. I was born into a musical family and have been playing my whole life. My main instrument is the bass but I'm pretty decent on guitar and keys. Pretty much any instrument you give me I can make music on.

Unlike many musicians I have also been lucky enough to have a very strong mathematical and logical mind. There was a time in my life where I almost became a research scientist. Although I love science, I am so happy with the decisions I have made.

I graduated NYU in 2010 with a degree in jazz performance on the upright / electric bass - with some various minor focuses (comp sci, music tech, music business)
What I’m doing with my life
Mon-Thursday: I run a music school called "School of Rock" and if you've seen the movie, I am the Jack Black of my school. I teach private lessons and run rehearsals where the kids form bands and I teach them how to be rock stars. It is so rewarding to share my love of music with the kids. There are so many moments at work where I have to do a reality check because it is such a wonderful job I have; I get to share, inspire, and be a mentor to these amazing kids. I am the kind of person that needs to be around people at work. I used to work in a pro-audio repair shop fixing amplifiers and keyboards and what-not. The loneliness of the shop was too much for me.

Thanks to my inclination to numbers, science, and my natural drive I have always been an entrepreneur. I can remember being a little kid and having all of these little business ideas and carrying them out. Now, as an adult that drive and imagination hasn't stopped. I currently have two small businesses that are still afloat and another BIG one in the works.

One of those businesses is an iPhone app company. We have developed an app that my band tours with to create live visuals that can be projected on the band. The consumer version allows you to make your own wildly effected videos and share them as GIFS. Who doesn't love a good GIF!?

I am also in a successful touring indie rock band. We just got off a long run of tours and are staying local this summer which is going to be a nice change of pace. I do love traveling and am hoping to take some time off this summer to explore on my own - without a tour itinerary. Maybe find time to go fishing / camping.
I’m really good at
I like to tell stories. One of my biggest gifts is my ability to make a story bigger than life and capture the audience with details and my wit. Late nights in the tour bus are conducive to me improvising silly outlandish fantasy tales such as "The Adventures of Snugglepuss" - I'm kind of seriously (not at all) trying to develop that one into a children's book. All i can say is that tears of laughter were shed by all in the bus when I first told that story.

I like to create and be creative in all ways. From making music, crafts, photos, movies, plays, websites, sidewalk chalk drawings, cartoonish monster costumes, jewelry, documentaries on the life cycle of frogs, to cooking: I love to make things; and to share the joy of creativity with the people around me. Some of my favorite nights are spent indoors with a bunch of supplies and our imaginations.

Im really good at fixing things and solving problems. Im very handy with tools and can be quite the MacGyver when needed.

Drinking whiskey. I love whiskey, bourbon, scotch, rye. If it is brown, alcoholic, and old - I will probably drink it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look like a musician and am proud of my beard. I promise it won't get out of control. I do groom it regularly
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll just list a few of each that come to mind.

Books: One flew over the cuckoo's nest, Great Gatsby, Slaughterhouse five, Plato's Republic, On The Road, Electric Kool Aid Acid Test, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

Movies: Star Wars, anything with zombies, Terry Gilliam movies, Tarrantino movies, Spinal Tap, oh and all Mel Brooks / Monty python

Shows: Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Gallactica, Parks and Recreation, Modern Family, Bones (guilty pleasure), Arrested Development, Firefly

Food: Thai, mexican, peruvian, argentinian, chinese, korean, BBQ, peanut butter, anything spicy. I am a bit a Sriracha addict.

Music: It is a major cop out when people say, "I listen to everything, like, literally, everything". When we start using words like "everything" - we open the floor to a lot of doubt as well as some serious late night philosophical debates. So, no, I don't listen to everything but I do listen to quite a bit more than some. I started making a list of artists, but to be terribly honest, it was getting rather long and unwieldy; there were so many commas (like my last sentence).

I grew up with a steady diet of classic rock, Motown, soul, and jazz. I went through an angsty phase in my teens and I was opened up to punk, alternative, and hard core. In my later teens I went through a hippie phase and got into jam bands, electronic music, more jazz, and middle eastern music. Then in college my ears were exposed to classical music and i fell in love with romantic and impressionism composers as well as neo classical and 20th century composers. Through college to now I've been listening to a lot of electronic music, indie rock, folk, minimalism, and I am constantly seeking out new music.

Just to give you some names and commas here is what I listened to the day when I made this: The Beatles, Radiohead, Brian Eno, Haim, The Flaming Lips, Steve Reich, Fleet Foxes, Boards of Canada, Dirty Projectors, Bjork, Pink Floyd, St. Vincent.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I want you to think I am thinking about: zombie apocalypse.

What I am trying to think about: How I can leave a legacy that has a positive impact on the world.

What I am actually thinking about: music, spicy food, work, music. whiskey, girls, snacks, tools, internet, the validity of online dating, scotch.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays are great. The school I run is closed so I have the whole day off. I will usually sleep in a little then I'll go to my band practice in the afternoon. After that Ill get dinner with a friend or a date. After dinner I'll continue going out with friends or bar hopping around Brooklyn. Sometimes Ill opt for a lower key night and stay in and do something fun and creative or just watch a movie and relax.
