My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born and raised in rural northeastern Pennsylvania, I have found my way to NYC via Philadelphia in pursuit of jazz and music. An avid outdoorsman, I enjoy good conversation over a few drinks and anything passionate, artistic, and fulfilling. I tend to gravitate towards the humorous and I am attracted to those with a strong intellect and a passion for something.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I currently teach high school in Queens NYC and I love it! Teaching music and watching how it changes student's lives is extremely fulfilling! It truly reassures me that my life is not being lived in vain!

When not teaching, I am a recording artist/composer and I have 6 CD's as a leader. I play the baritone saxophone and I have chosen to strive to make this instrument my artistic voice.

I also enjoy visiting my parents in Pa as often as I can and the outdoors....activities including fishing. You can also find me spending time with my beautiful niece (and at times babysitting....which is a topic for another time!)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I suppose I am really good at the saxophone...I spent many years as a musician practicing diligently to the point where now I am receiving many very positive reviews from critics. It feels good to be rewarded for my hard work and diligence.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I definitely go into Jim Carey mode in the classroom, it is so much fun!!! A corny pun is usually involved on a daily basis as well. In the right atmosphere, I think I can come across funny. It is definitely fun and humor is a big part of my everyday life!
But first thing? I don't think people really tell you what they notice about you first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Has anyone seen the original 6 Tenacious D episodes with Jack Black? (before he was famous, mid-1990's) These I really believe are masterpieces and some of the funniest stuff ever! Speaking of 90's, Seinfeld all day!!! Family Guy.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
fishing rod
sense of humor
good friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think about lesson plans, the greater unanswered questions in life vs. how downright ironic and humorous it usually is, how to be a better teacher, my next move in my music, fishing, my family, and my amazing niece!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with close friends or driving in my truck somewhere exciting!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a passion for something. You like to discuss the deeper stuff but also like to laugh and be silly. (I do tend to gravitate towards people who are unique and interesting, and those that like to discuss more involved topics other then the weather etc.)
You are secure, driven, goal-oriented, and know who you are and what you want out of life. Finally, you detect something in this profile that sparks your interest and resonates with you.
