My self-summary
I'm 50% responsible dad with a day job, 50% musician who plays the drums and loves to stay up late. I am a morning person exactly 0% of the time.

My two boys, 12 and 10, are my top priority. I have them half the time, and see them nearly every day. Monday through Friday I'm an IT guy for a local hospital system. It's challenging and keeps my brain nimble.

I play drums whenever I can. I started playing gigs when I was 15, and haven't stopped. Some years are busier than others. Since my marriage ended 3 years ago, I haven't played as much as I like, but that could change soon. Over the years I've played rock, blues, RB, jazz, zydeco, whatever. I even played country and western in Ireland for a year, back in the early nineties. Lately, I get called for jazz gigs. When I go out to see music, my first stop is the Estate on Murray. If I don't have kids on a Friday, I'm likely there.

The time I have left is spent getting fresh air outside, usually on my bike. I like to go long and slow. No spandex leotards for me. My first goal for 2014 is the 75 mile route at the Ride for the Arts. Depending on how that goes, I might shoot for a 125 mile ride in July. Besides cycling, I like hiking at state parks, e.g. Lapham Peak, long walks around Milwaukee, or sitting on my porch taking it all in. Fire-pits in my back yard are another favorite of mine.

I am not into sports, but I do like to follow the Packers. However, if I have a choice between a bike ride or watching a game, the bike ride wins, every time. No interest in the Brewers or the Bucks, but it’s fun to go to a game now and again. I'm not into motorcycles, either. These two qualities put me into a minority, it seems.

Who am I looking for? Someone intellectual, open-minded, curious about the world, liberal, and who likes to make fun of the absurdity of life.

If any of this appeals to you, let me know. Let’s get some coffee and get acquainted.
What I’m doing with my life
Unraveling the mystery that is my two boys
Earning a living without going completely bonkers
Playing gigs to maintain my sanity
Training for the biggest, longest event in my life: old age.
I’m really good at
Washing dishes and vacuuming. Which is handy, because I'm also good at dirtying dishes and leaving a trail of debris.

Listening. It can be a blessing and a curse. Background muzak in restaurants is tortuous. The beach or the woods - much better.
The first things people usually notice about me
Most of the time, it's the horns. Close runner-up: the clown shoes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm in the Duke Ellington camp: there's good music and bad music. I haven't come across a genre where I wasn't amazed by something. I tend to gravitate to jazz, and anything with some serious rhythm: New Orleans, Louisiana, Jamaica, Brazil, Memphis, Nashville. I've also got a thing for the organ, both the Hammond B3 and the big units in church. I dig anything by Bach.

Movies hypnotize me: I get really caught up in them. I love big epics, and slow foreign movies. I don't like dumb movies, but it might take me half an hour to figure out that what I'm watching is dumb. Or it might take me two weeks.

Food? Yes. Every day. Spicy is good: Indian, Thai, Mexican, whatever. Sausage is good, too, which is convenient, because in Milwaukee, sausage grows on trees. I'm always up for trying something new. I like sushi, but I haven't worked my way up to sashimi yet.
The six things I could never do without
My kids
My drums
My bike
My ipod
Good coffee
Books and magazines
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's the difference between good music and bad music?
On a typical Friday night I am
either watching a movie with my boys, or on my way to a gig. If neither of those is happening, then I'm looking for a nice meal and perhaps planning on catching some jazz or other live music later.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will only wear wool socks.
