My self-summary
I am a sculptor and I work in metal. I do large scale pieces, jewelry, and everything in between. I also work freelance for a couple companies remodeling people's homes.
My favorite activity in the world is riding waist deep powder through the trees on my snowboard. I play percussion in a band and I really enjoy the collaborative process of making music. I have a killer sound system in my workshop and most nights you'll find me there rockin out to music and operating commercial grade power tools.
Yoga and healthy eating are big parts of my life, as well as meditation.
You are a glass half full kind of person. You know the true definition of karma and don't talk about it like you lost a bet. You enjoy adventures. Having an itinerary is great, but I use it as a rough outline. I enjoy exploring and finding hidden gems. So should you. Collaborative cooking is a must. I enjoy coming up with healthy/ savory dishes. You should know your way around a kitchen or be excited to learn.
Seeing live bands and dj's for the purpose of dancing is something we should do together. Often.
Good luck out there through this tedious and akward process. I hope you all meet your match.
What I’m doing with my life
Making objects, both functional and artistic. Welding, working with wood designing. Coming up with vegan recipes. Playing basketball and tennis. I recently started skiing again although on a powder day it's all snowboard. Getting more and more involved in the family business (just ask). Practicing TaiChi, Yoga, and Meditating. Learning healthier eating practices. Meeting my neighbors and making a difference locally.
I’m really good at
-Designing and working with metal.
-Snowboarding in knee deep powder through the trees.
-Shaving my head ... I recieved my maternal Grandfathers genes: baldness, and a great shaped dome.
-Scrabble - I used to play competitvely. I'm always looking for a challenge.
The first things people usually notice about me
At 6'2" I always forget that I'm tall. Banging my head on ceiling fans jogs my memory. I always marvel at how short my family is in photos.

At an art opening, hosting a dinner party, making art, or fostering an impromptu dance party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I delivered the Hartford Courant as a young child. The food section would come on thurdays seperated from the rest of the paper. Many times the people on my route did not recieve their food section. Oh and I like 80's synth pop.
