Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a professional musician who has a day job tuning pipe organs.
By night and on weekends and several months out of the year I sing
with various professional opera companies and choirs and
I really care about my friends and family and seek to nurture and
strengthen bonds with all.
I have a great many passions and find more all the time. Obviously
music is number one. I usually wind down from a day of singing or
tuning by singing more or playing music. I love playing Beethoven
and Mozart and Bach on my piano, and also love playing jigs on my
mandolin. I love jamming with friends too. It would be a bonus if
you played an instrument or just liked singing.
I have been home brewing for 5 years and still brew lots. I get
lots of pleasure in brewing great craft beer and sharing it all
with my friends. Bonus if you like beer and exploring new
Cooking is a huge part of my life. I eat vegan at home and get a
kick out of trying new kitchen creations. Though I will eat
anything offered to me when out. Strangest thing I've eaten?
Probably fish eyes and jellyfish.
Keeping fit is central to my happiness. I bike everywhere I can and
don't mind getting caught in the occasional rain as long as there's
dry clothes at the end. I'm a fair weather runner (no snow). I'm a
member at a squash club and just love smacking the ball against the
wall with good guys Trash talk is key.
Learning and exploration are central to me. I usually go on a long
canoe trip each summer and usually travel abroad. I'm thinking
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a professional musician. Most of my work comes though singing
in choirs and opera companies. While I keep advancing my career I
also tune pipe organs with a buddy of mine. No two days are the
same in my life, that's for sure.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Some books I like are Charming Billy by Alice McDermott, Lakeland
by Allan Casey, The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey, Eating Animals by
Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm not so much a movie guy or a TV guy. I
will watch old episodes of the X-Files, or maybe a documentary on
the food system. I absolutely love classical music. Beethoven piano
sonatas and string quartets, Mozart piano sonatas and operas, Verdi
operas, Josquin de Prez choral music, Bach cantatas and French
Suites, Brahms lieder. Sometimes I listen to bluegrass and folky
stuff and jazz.
Food deserves its own paragraph. I will eat anything. Food and
drink are an exploration. Mussels in wine sauce, paella, sushi,
beans, garden tomatoes, pizza, figs, potatoes, fresh beer, good
regional wine, date squares, m&m's from a vending machine,
avocados with olives, olive oil on everything, dal. You get the
