I am a bass player- I learned playing jazz punk and oldies but I can and like to play pretty much anything. Musical theatre and cruise ships were my last foray. Now I'm back in the indie pool. I grew up dirty third coast.
My dear friends came up with a life philosophy called "Rage Law" that i tend to ascribe to. I'll describe it with an experiment-
"Leave a pot of excuses to boil.
Let it all, boil away.
Observe the salt.
That's Rage Salt.

Other notable interests include - Live music of all kinds, reading, NPR/Community Radio, biking, wikipedia diving, hanging out, Traveling (48 states, 16 other countries, and hoping to keep that number going up), playing pool and often getting my ass handed to me, cooking, raging - although this has gotten smoother with age. Riding my bike, going to a coffee shop for a good chat or reading sesh. Walks, swimming, and the occasional nature romp.
I love high energy and funny people. I dislike staying at home too often.
One of these days, I might get sick of what I am doing and go to grad school, probably to be a clinical psychologist. But probably not.
