I like to surround myself with people who inspire me to be better. People who are positive and treat others kindly. People who stand tall for something/anything. People who are deeply moved by a single lyric or melody. People who dream big, and then fumble while they fumble. People who are rarely grumpy, and rarely complain. People with a pulse that reverberates.
I also get along very well with people who are honest/transparent with their scars. From past relationships. Failures. Bad parenting. Whatever. We share this. Everyone shares this.
I spent the first 25ish years of my life surrounded by art/music. My father is a professional jazz musician. So was my grandfather. I studied classical guitar in college. Somewhere along the way, I started spending more time writing software, and kicked art to the curb. So, I'm currently re-discovering how to express myself artistically.
I love to create, and to build things. I'm currently trying to finish building a bike that I started a few months ago. I'd also like to build a fire pit and a hammock stand.
