I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Spent 13 years of my life as a touring musician (mainly in the punk and metal genres with a few other more mellow projects thrown in).
The last band I was a part of was based out of Des Moines, IA. So, I left all of my family and friends and made the move.
I was lucky enough to travel to places I never thought I would get a chance to visit. I got to do things which I never thought I would do.
And most importantly, I got to meet tons of amazing people. That experience helped me grow as a person a lot, and for that, I am greatly appreciative.
I ended up really liking the Midwest lifestyle and decided to stay.
Really enjoy traveling. I get away as much as possible.
I am a homeowner and have completed several remodeling projects. I am always doing some project around the house.
I completely remodeled my first home and VERY recently moved in to my second home. My style is very much Mid Mod.
I play the Bass, Guitar, Drums and keyboards. Jack of all trades, master of none.. or so I think. I just never could settle on one instrument.
I spent most of my life playing punk and metal music however I like just about any genre of music. I can find inspiration in all types.
I have no kids. I have never been married.
I have 11 tattoos.
I'm a decent artist. I like to draw and paint. I also enjoy photography.
I am a movie buff. You name the movie, I probably own it.
I REALLY enjoy cooking. Always trying new dishes.
I am not much of a drinker. I drink MAYBE 3 or 4 times a year and never to get drunk. I dont have a problem with drinking or people who drink, its just a personal choice.
My favorite sport is hockey (Detroit Red Wings). Also a fan of football. Call me a nerd however I enjoy bowling. Curling anyone?
I am a animal lover. I have 2 cats which I adopted. They are simply amazing and I feel as though I really lucked out finding such wonderful creatures.
I live my life one way. I treat others as I would like to be treated myself.
Wow, was that boring or what? :)
A far cry from living out of a suitcase but I've enjoyed it thus far.
