I'm a midwest transplant who grew up riding bikes, visiting my grandparents' farm, and assuming that most of the country was covered in corn fields like Iowa is. Since then I've seen a lot of the world (including all 50 US states) and built a life I could never have even imagined as a kid, but at heart I'm still a friendly and optimistic Iowa boy who wants the best for everyone.
I'm passionate about everything I do, it's my secret weapon and my downfall. I spent six months figuring out what colors to paint my walls and inventing the painting technique to get the pattern I wanted. It was agonizing but now it's absolutely beautiful and my friends tell me it looks like it belongs in a home design magazine. Was it worth it? I can't even say, because I don't know any other way.
When I'm not working I'm making music. I have a tight group of friends who all sing together, mainly classical music (more specifically Early Music). A friend and I even started a record label and we've turned out some discs that I'm really proud of. And if you've ever heard "the monks" sing Compline on Sunday night at St. Mark's, I sang as part of that choir for several years.
I'm looking for someone who can appreciate and maybe even match (good luck!) my passion and enthusiasm.
