UPDATE: Satch is still hanging' in there like a champ. I now have a new puppy to add to my pack. He's a Siberian husky and his name is Woodrow.
From an emotional standpoint, I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, which makes me a pretty shitty liar. At the risk of sounding cocky, I am highly educated and consider myself a very intelligent person. I completed my doctorate in music (trumpet performance to be more specific) five years ago. It took a lot of effort to accomplish this and I'm not ashamed to say that I have received a great deal of personal satisfaction from having reached that milestone in my life.
What do I enjoy? First and foremost, music, but I'll get to that in the "What I'm doing with my life section." Aside from that, I love a great conversation and will talk your ear off if you let me. I love to cook when I have the time to do it right, especially when I can fire up the smoker for a backyard BBQ. I love hanging out with my friends. I love good beer. If I can combine all of the above mentioned activities, even better!! I like to hit the town and check out live music when I'm not the one actually playing the live music. I love great food and all of the killer restaurants that Austin has to offer. I'm a huge Longhorn fan. I love the outdoors, particularly camping and hiking. What else.......oh!! I also love to read, and do it often.
