Well....I skipped this section and did all the rest and now reluctantly return to this. I actually think there's plenty below and in the never ending section of questions, but I'll try to play by the rules.
I'm a goodhearted, intelligent and funny guy. I love a good time, good conversation and good company. I keep it pretty straight faced and hold my cards close to the vest at first, but once I'm comfortable and digging the situation, watch out! You'll never know quite what to expect out of my mouth next.
Curious George was my favorite book as a kid. Cat in the Hat, of course, was right up there.
At first, I'm a pretty nice and normal seeming guy, perhaps even impressive and/or interesting to whatever degree. Some might think I'm boring and vanilla on a quick first impression. Not quite, however. Once you give me reason to open up and you dig a little deeper, you'll see JUST how surprisingly unique and funny I am compared to a hasty impression.
I guess I should get some of the basics out of the way. Grew up in NJ, college in New Orleans (LOVE THAT CITY!!!), grad school in music in Indiana, lived also in Seattle, Zurich and numerous stays for months at a time in other places around the country in my performing journey. Spent many summers as a yout attending and working at an outdoorsy camp up in Maine that is probably the best place on earth. It definitely had a big impact on me and I get back to visit when I can.
I have a lot of great friends from the camp years, the college years, my music world, and of course, from the formative years growing up through high school. To me, people are one of the most important aspects of our lives, so I like to make an effort to cultivate and maintain relationships with good friends from throughout my journey. Likewise, I think that communication is of utmost importance in a relationship and like to keep things as open and honest as possible.
MAN! Is it just me, or is this one long and boring self-summary? Let's just call it a draft. Stay tuned for brilliant, witty and length slashing revision.
Oh, by the way, my user name has nothing to do with NY or where I live.
