My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an artist of sound and visual design. I love to share my love of art through performing, teaching or creating. Deep, I know but it sums it all up. :P

Ultimately, I am looking for a relationship. I am not rushing into marriage or kids - not till I find the right girl. Someone who understands what it means to respect and encourage each other. I'm a good guy that doesn't have baggage or addictions. I live a healthy lifestyle while knowing exactly what I want. I'm driven, happy but never satisfied with where I'm at in life (if you are, you're dead).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an elementary school music teacher teaching band, orchestra, dance, choir & a film club.

I am also a freelance videographer and steadicam operator shooting Chicago sporting events and athletes, local commercials, independent films & weddings. Some highlights of my video career are: an Animal Planet Television series as Assistant Camera, the Jackson's videographer (for a day) and working pro sports media.

I DJ parties, events.

If you didn't notice, I play guitar. I'm usually busy practicing technique, improvising solos, writing, writing and writing music. I'm currently playing a cover band AND I'm looking for a new original band. Recently, I have discovered that writing my own music is a very liberating experience!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall, fit, chiseled facial features and bald (cleanly shaven).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Because of my background in filmmaking, I am naturally a movie lover. I love movies that stimulate me visually (camera work, composition and/or special effects) but that doesn't mean I turn my head to character development or the actors ability to invite me into "their world" based upon their performance. I am a fan of many classic movie masterpieces such as Once Upon a Time in the West, Citizen Kane, The Godfather, Sunset Blvd, Raging Bull, Cinema Paradiso and a bunch of others. Other movie favorites are Back to the Future (all time favorite actually), Star Wars (of course), Lord of the Rings, El Mariachi, Billy Madison, Hitch, 12 Monkeys, Children of Men (a must see!), Family Man and the list keeps going.

TV:
What is a TV?

Netflix:
History Channel, The Simpsons, Movies, Documentaries

Books:
The Steadicam Handbook (400 pages of fun if you're a steadicam op!)
The Four Agreements
The Power of Now by eckhart tolle (if you have enjoyed this book, we have a good chance of getting along)
Steve Jobs (he was whacked but an inspiration)

Music:
SWING - Frank, Ella, Dino, Sam, Louis Jordon, Indigo Swing, Ray Charles
GUITARISTS - Ed Van Halen, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert, Tommy Emmanuel
HARD ROCK - VH, Mr. Big, Chickenfoot, Extreme, Foo Fighters, Chili Peppers, Aerosmith, G-n-R, etc...
POP - MJ, Billy Joel
CLASSICAL - Mozart, Beethoven, Smetina, Tchaikovsky, Saint-saens

As far as country and rap/dance/house I like a handful of tunes from those genres but that's about it.

Food:
Mostly Organic
Gluten & Milk free (my body can't have it any other way)
I do my best to be sugar free. (Sugar is toxic and addicting)
I usually cook my own food. I prefer to know exactly what's going in my body and I give my body what it needs most.
I'm not perfect but I do my best.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.) My health
2.) My family
2.5) Positive cash flow
3.) Car (stick shift)
4.) Videomaking gear (all of it)
4.5) My guitar gear (all of it)
5.) iPhone/iPad
6.) Internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Dream, do and figure out the rest later. Because by that time, it will be over. It's the curse/blessing while being an artist. Now, it would be much easier if I "chose" one art form and focused on that alone... but it just doesn't satisfy. Keep at it, be always "on" & do better each time you try. Can I have an Amen???
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
what day is it? ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
