Single, professional guy. Been in Grand Rapids about a year. I
travel a lot for work(playing music (not in bars)). I moved here to
teach and have enjoyed the town so far. No kids. No crazy ex.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a musician, so there is always more to hear, study, enjoy, work
on, etc. Recently finished my doctorate in music. Trying to balance

the road. I also think about music a lot (obviously) and there are
so many cool things to be inspired about. Sometimes it is great to
just contemplate the universe too.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually playing a gig. Being a musician is funny because we have
weird schedules, but it is an awesome thing to do and I love it. If
I'm free, I would be grabbing some drinks with friends, going to
concerts, small parties where people talk to each other like adults
as they sip cocktails, or collapsing on my couch and watching a
