My self-summary
I'm a laid-back, genuinely warm, affectionate guy who appreciates simplicity. Music is my passion and where I find the truest expression of my spirituality.

I've been told I'm a great listener and a calming presence. While I value sincerity, I have an absurd sense of humor. And I have a pretty ridiculous uninhibited laugh, but you might have to unleash it.

I love the energy of the city, but appreciate stillness and silence and the outdoors even more (I'm from Maine, it never leaves you). Pursuing the beautiful things in life is what interests me most.

I'm super liberal and try to be engaged with issues of social & economic justice when i can. But I'd like to be more actively involved than I am right now.
What I’m doing with my life
Playing music that hopefully moves people in some way, and trying to be an empathetic, compassionate and generous human being overall.
I’m really good at
Listening, finding humor in odd places, playing the saxophone. Being affectionate.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my height. Maybe my eyes, which seem to contain a lot of different colors. Also, people say they're calmer when they're around me. And according to some, my laugh is unique and kind of charming.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The inadequacy of words to convey most things. Ideas for comedy sketches / short films that may or may not ever get made.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out at a show or performing...or watching movies at home. Maybe at a house concert / pot luck / the awesome indian or tibetan joints in my neighborhood.
You should message me if
You're open, affectionate and up for doing anything or nothing with the right person.
