I am pretty much an open book. Ask me something, and I'll have an
answer. I'm a very motivated guy with big dreams and a lot of drive
to pursue them. Music is something that I'm incredibly passionate
about. If I'm listening to it, composing it, or teaching it, I'm
happy. I host a monthly open mic in Chandler. If you are a
musician/singer, ask me about it!
What I’m doing with my life
I am digital media developer (web and graphic design, internet
marketing). I work for a great company in Tempe. I also teach drum,
piano, and guitar lessons a couple evenings a week, and have
returned to school to pursue music education.
I've done a lot of traveling in the US and I'm always looking to
travel more, both in and out of the country (though I have yet to
venture overseas). I would love to meet someone who is up for new
adventures, visiting new places, trying new foods, and living life
to its fullest.
I’m really good at
Music, web design, and making coffee, and baking! (Especially
baking boozy cheesecakes!)
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite book is "The Sun Also Rises" by Hemingway. Catcher in
the Rye (Salinger) is a close second. Love the Harry Potter series.
The Stand by Stephen King is incredible. I like a lot of classic
literature. Stuff your high school teachers and college lit
professors make you read.
I love all kinds of music, but some of my favorite bands and
artists are Yellowcard, Something Corporate, Billie Holiday, John
Mayer, Aesop Rock, The Get Up Kids, Sublime, No Doubt, Dashboard
Confessional, Death Cab For Cutie, Say Anything, Perma, Frank
Turner, Garth Brooks, and John Coltrane. I love anything
Some of my favorite shows are Chopped, Once Upon a Time, Family
Guy, The Big Bang Theory, Bob's Burgers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer,
That 70s Show, and House.
Movies... My Sassy Girl (the Korean version), Rent, Guys and Dolls,
Empire Records, That Thing You Do, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Edward
Scissorhands, Big Fish, Aladdin, Donnie Darko, Serendipity, Amelie,
Moulin Rouge, the Phantom of the Opera....
Food... I try to eat healthy, but I am a sucker for Cajun food.
Crawfish étouffée, boudin, gumbo, jambalaya... I enjoy Korean food,
especially a good kimchi soup. I love to grill. If you're looking
for me in the evening during the spring and summer, I'm probably in
my backyard grilling! I'll try anything once.
The six things I could never do without
Assuming we're not being literal (food, water, oxygen, etc...)...
Friends, My guitar, My dog, Music, Disneyland, my iPhone... Though
it would probably do me some good to lose the iPhone every once in
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what's for dinner... Kidding. Sort of. I do like to cook! But
seriously, I try to "stay in the present" but I do often think
about the future. I'm definitely a day dreamer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Coding or Designing, grabbing a beer with friends, hanging out with
my dog, or driving to California, maybe writing songs on my guitar
or playing piano.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Um... I'm a pretty open book... I'm a grown man with an annual pass
You should message me if
... you understand the difference between "you're" and "your". :-)
