Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a friendly, open-minded and compassionate person that likes to
have fun but also knows when it is time to get things done. I have
a zest and curiosity to life and love to continually learn. I
believe we all need to keep part of ourselves open otherwise we
never will discover anything new. There is so much to explore. I've
learned a lot in the past year and am excited to share new
experiences with someone special.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
During the week, I do Accounting work for a non-profit in Okemos.
On my nights and weekends, you will find me playing my keyboards,
bass & guitar, having a drink out at a local pub, or patio,
seeing a terrific and inspiring performance, or spending a quiet
night home with my dog. In the summer, I like to take camping
excursions to Lake Michigan, meet friends at some exciting
festival, and also take trips to the mountains in both the east and
west. I'm hoping to travel to Europe next year, and more beyond
that as time and money see fit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Music! I have been performing in various groups since I was a
teenager. Keyboards are my main thing, but bass is becoming a close
2nd with guitar catching up, (my main writing instrument.) I also
write and record songs in my mini-studio. Gardening, running,
hiking and camping are other activities that are up there on the

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a good listener and that I have a decent sense of humor. I try
not to sweat the small stuff, so keeping it real and pleasant is
what I always strive for.

I like classic rock and 90's alternative music the most, though I
dip into progressive and folk music too. Bands I like include Pink
Floyd, The Who, Flaming Lips, Wilco, Foo Fighters, Radiohead,
Depeche Mode, New Order/Joy Division, aah that list could go
I don't watch a ton of TV but when I do, I prefer The Office,
Parks-n-Rec, Mad Men, Shameless & Dexter and I do have a guilty
pleasure for The Voice. I like mostly comedies for movies. I'm very
open-minded when it comes to food. Ethnic foods in particular
impress me such as Japanese, Indian, Chinese, Italian and Thai.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make the world a better place. Try to find new things to
write about. Both lyrics and melodies. I also think about history,
the world, and places to travel.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
sitting on a patio drinking a delicious Oberon with good friends,
playing music either alone or with various other musicians, or a
quiet evening with my dog.
