Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a classical musician - I play bassoon and it's pretty sweet
sometimes. Currently I play with a local symphony and hopefully
will move up from there...
Besides that, I've done some traveling and had some wonderful

knowledge and culture is one of of the greatest things you can
I consider myself quite a foodie, making all sorts of delicious
foods. Cassoulet was my latest accomplishment (so fatty but soooo
delicious), who knows what's next?

classical kicked in; I played sax), especially Charles Mingus

When it comes to food, I love pretty much all kinds. I lean towards

italian food and, well, everything.
