I love music, indulging in good food and wine, hanging with my
eclectic group of friends, and trying on newness. I've have a
passionate spirit and a compassionate heart. I have been an avid
traveler (and am overdue). I have loved and lost and loved and lost
but my heart keeps getting bigger. I have a ton of different
interests, but music is the apex, as a musician and a fan. I get
out most weekends, but am equally a homebody. I run my own software
business, I'm a reader, I'm an opinionated wannabe political
pundit, I love to cook, I have a huge list of restaurants I'm
trying to check off the list, I believe that the Buddha got it spot
on right, I'm honest, funny, goofy, loyal, and a fun guy to hang
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a software guy that in the last few years moved from
engineering to working with inventions. I work from home most of
I've been playing guitar most of my life and gig all over the bay
area. I don't watch TV so I can usually be found at nights
practicing or noodling songs. I usually do the jam band sound
though I love to play jazz. And I'm just as much of a fan, so I go
to a lot of shows.
There's a whole slew of other things I love to do too. More
I’m really good at
Having fun where I am, rocking out, my work, having a great
conversation, laughing, kissing, smiling, being a giver, and
talking to almost anybody about anything.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love the classics, especially 20th century authors.
Jitterbug Perfume is still one of my all-time favorites. Vonnegut,
Hemingway, Bukowski go back for me. A new one I recently read is
Everything Matters by Ron Currie, amazing. So many to name, I love
to read and I've got 3 or 4 usually going at a time.
Movies: I love going to the movies and just as well much of a
pleasure is going myself. I can't go more than a week without at
least one movie night, sometimes even if it means renting something
sub 50% on rotten tomatoes. iTunes is kind of like the fridge, I
keep regularly opening it up thinking there will be something new
Music: I have a music composition degree, so I like to think this
is my wheel house. I appreciate all music - good is good. I love
the local music scene here. I have my staple favorites and get most
of my new release info from KCRW out of LA. I love jam bands as
much as I love Ryan Adams, Massive Attack, Debussy, and
Food: Sushi, Thai, all nuts, blueberries, chocolate anything. But
really pretty much everything, save for eggplant.
The six things I could never do without
Music, good health, my friends, family, adventure, optimism.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can wear my favorite jeans for days on end. A habit from the days
of traveling light.
