I work as a tennis pro, teaching kids to play tennis, which I
really enjoy. I have coached high school teams. I am a big sports
fan: I particularly like college football, but also like pro
football, watching hockey, tennis, golf, and basketball.
I recently started teaching myself to play guitar. I became
interested in playing because most of my favorite musicians are
guitarists, and wanted to try to replicate their music. I am still
learning. I enjoy hunting for records, and still prefer actual CDs
to buying digital copies.
I graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in
history, although this is not applicable to my current job.
I am occasionally intense, but also laid-back at others. I don't
get stressed about work, money, school, etc., but can scream at the
little football players on the tv. I like meeting new people, but
also am happy to spend some time alone.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Place where I want to travel, songs I want to learn on the guitar,
what life would be like if I were famous, my roommates annoying me

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

really bother me.
