I am intensely driven to succeed in everything I do, while stopping to smell the roses along the way. I know how to have fun and find humor all around me. I have also been known to make people laugh from time to time.
I adore new experiences. I enjoy eating at new restaurants. I love to hear an awesome song for the first time and then hear it again. I have an endless thirst for knowledge. I love to travel. Visiting a new city and discovering all of its wonders is heaven to me. I have visited many places in the U.S. and can't wait to see more of it and the world.
Art and beauty make the world a tolerable place for me to inhabit. I especially appreciate and enjoy film, music, painting, and beautiful women. Stanley Kubrick, Darren Aronofsky, and David Lynch are my favorite filmmakers and 2001 is my favorite film of all time. I am also fond of Full Metal Jacket, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, Black Swan, Mulholland Drive, and many others.
If Salvador Dali was a boxer he would knock out the entire art universe at once with one hand tied behind his back. Though Vincent Van Gogh would put up a tough fight; Dali would win as long as he protected his ears. That is all I have to say about painting.
Music is my life. I breathe, drink, eat, and shit music. I play bass in 3 bands. I work in a music store. I am a mild-mannered salesman by day and a raging rockhero by night. I have a wonderful circle of musician friends who are truly awesome people. I absolutely love concerts. Metric, The Flaming Lips, Fleetwood Mac, U2, Pink Floyd, and Florence + The Machine are some of the favorites. Listening to music is a part of everything that I do and I am always in search of new music.
I have lived at least one other life. In this life I attended USF and received a B.S. in Computer Engineering. Then I moved to Orlando and worked as a software engineer. During this time I married my high-school sweetheart. We had a beautiful daughter and named her Rain. We separated and divorced by the time she was 3. I became a single parent. With each passing year I become more and more dissatisfied with my job and my life. After 12 years, I quit my job and embarked on a year long odyssey around the country. After much experience and reflection I created a new life for myself. My daughter is now 19 and living on her own. And I am enjoying my freedom, independence, and the endless possibilities all around me.
I can't wait for the world tour.
