Like a lot of us, I've had a few lives and careers. Currently I have a gig in the hospitality biz with a fair amount of responsibility that pays the bills and allows me some space and time to pursue things that feed me. I write and play music and also have a background in the theater and sketch comedy/original musical comedy. Still do children's theater every summer. Have a lot of room for volunteer work and service in my life. I am not defined by my job, but I have one. And I'm in a band, man.
As for dating...not in any hurry after all we've been through but feel open minded. Meeting for coffee after a bit of communication seems reasonable to me.
