My self-summary
I'm a musician and music professor. I play jazz and classical saxophone. I actually started on guitar and still play it, but I'm waaay better at saxophone, having completed three performance degrees on the instrument. Pulling off a career in music certainly comes with its sacrifices. For instance, you end up spending a lot of time listening to music as opposed to reading. Encouraging, I know. But I still consider myself fairly well-rounded.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach jazz studies and some theory at the u of r and try to play out as much as I can. I play in a good local salsa band and in a saxophone quartet that plays higher profile gigs from time to time. I also play in different incarnations of a jazz combo.
I’m really good at
Depends on your definition of really good. But I will probably school your ass at ping pong. And boggle too. I do play tennis (ntrp 5.0!).
The first things people usually notice about me
The guns. No, I'm not sure, maybe my hair. Or maybe that I already have them figured out? No, that was totally random.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Lynch, Kubrick, Goddard, Bunuel, Almodovar, Ben Stiller, Haneke, but I still need to see The Piano Teacher; Deuce Bigelow, European Gigolo (one of those rare cases where the sequel is better than the original!); Jaws, Rocky IV; Point Break is a true classic. Mullholand Drive, A Clockwork Orange, the Shining is solid, love Cronenberg's early stuff, all of it, especially Existenz, but not so much his bigger movies, although A Dangerous Method is great; Mo Betta Blues and Do the Right Thing. Possibly my all time favorite is Belle de Jour. I know I may seem like a total weirdo coming out and saying that, but there you have it. Made in USA (Goddard) is also an incredible film. I used to check out more herzog stuff. Abbas kierastomi. Takashi Miike.

Books: Camus, Burroughs, definitely Henry Miller, Karouac, Kurt Vonnegut, Flannery O'Connor. The Trial, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Invisible Man, Crime and Punishment. Not much contemporary stuff, I guess. Lately, I've been attempting to read poetry from time to time. It's been an excellent exercise in posturing.

Music: Petey Pablo!! 24 hours a day. No (well, sort of no; I'll keep freak-a-leek on if it comes on in my car), I listen to a lot of jazz; not a ton of classical. Miles davis is responsible for putting out arguably the best jazz records of all-time. I love hip hop. My listening varies depending on what I'm working on. Lately I've been listening to: michael brecker, seamus blake, the jazz messengers, faith no more, earlier phish, a lot of a tribe called quest, robert glasper, Coldplay, duke ellington, joshua redman, NIN here and there. Later Miles records.

Shows: Six feet under, Dexter, Get a Life, Home Movies, Seinfeld, Curb, Breaking Bad, In Treatment, True Blood (I guess), Boardwalk Empire (I guess), Real Time, also Smiley and West! (I know that's radio, but whatever).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Quantum mechanics, just all day long; for sure. And when i come to conclusions, I say "whooooaa" out loud, like someone on acid discovering the meaning of life via a Trey Anastasio solo. So either that or Post-structuralism, more during the evenings.
On a typical Friday night I am
Meet me in the's goin' down!!

(If you've caught the Yung Joc reference here, no, I'm not actually a drug dealer).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am no longer allowed to vote. Message me to find out why!!

(That's a joke, btw...).
