I'm an easy going musician who enjoys being outside, photography, movies, NPR, cooking, and whiskey. Nothing beats a long road trip in the fall, and I've got a soft spot in my heart for dogs. I fall in and out of love with running on a regular basis. I like to learn new things and try to read as much as I can. I visited all 50 State Capitols in 5 years, and will be starting to branch out to the international ones in 2016!
What I’m doing with my life
While not playing piano, practicing guitar, or coaching singers on
music, I'm traveling or working on my yoga skills. I'd like to go
back to grad school eventually, or maybe move abroad. I'm still
figuring those big picture details out.
I’m really good at
Laughing, punctuation, folding laundry, making you laugh, adding a
soundtrack to life, crossword puzzles, coloring inside the lines,
taking your picture, sleeping, playing games, smiling, finding my
way around a new place, eating, and singing in the shower.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love books by Carson McCullers. Stories about music and
musicians, biographies, historical fiction, and suspense.
At home I like all sorts of movies, from foreign romances to zombie
masacres. I tend to lean towards the more thrilling/epic movies
when I'm dropping my $13-$17 to see a film in theatres. That being
said - "The Fountain" was beautiful on the big screen.
The nearest and dearest artists to my heart at the moment are
Sufjan Stevens, Nine Inch Nails, Hot Chip, Jamie Cullum, Mindless
Self Indulgence, NERO, Regina Spektor, and Crooked Still.
When it comes to food, I'm pretty open. Given the choice, I usually
like things a little spicier, and I've never met an ice cream I
The six things I could never do without
Black Iced Tea.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'd rather be outside. Particularly during the fall. Or spring. Or summer. Probably winter too.
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical is unusual. Preferred? Sipping on Makers on the rocks and reading a good book. Or watching cartoons. Or Star Trek. Or Law & Order. Or making lists on OkCupid.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once ate at Chipotle 4 times in a 48-hour period.
