i'm a musician, filmmaker and writer. i read and write everyday. i
enjoy every moment, the so-called little things, like the first
taste of coffee in the morning and a random call from a friend. i'm
good at being alone and i love a crowd. i host a lot of parties and
have a great time meeting new people. i tend to ask a lot of
questions: "where did you grown up? what do you do? do you like it?
no? then what would you rather be doing?" i'm fascinated by human
behavior and if i could start over i might be a psychologist.
people tell me i'm lucky to have the life i have and i agree.
What I’m doing with my life
i've always been a professional musician (pianist, producer) but at
middle age i decided to learn how to make movies and i'm happy with
how movie-making's going so far and definitely plan to keep going
with it. i opened an art gallery in 2006 and that's been a lot of
fun and has let me meet a lot of great people. my most recent
musical project is a series of piano and cello recordings on which
i play the piano. i live in a small town but i get to travel enough
to big cities to balance my small town life. i do a lot of online
networking, so i feel like i'm in constant touch with world.
I’m really good at
playing the piano, putting words together, helping people think
more deeply about themselves and their life.
The first things people usually notice about me
a lot of people, when they come into my home for the first time,
say "wow! have you actually READ all of these books?!"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
too hard to answer. i have a crazy wide range of tastes in most
things, from very mainstream/middle-of-the-road to the arty and
intellectual. i listen to virtually all kinds of music, from
classical, jazz and country, to electronica, hip-hop and post rock.
i like going to hear live music. i like going to movies and plays.
i love restaurants, love eating in general. i like to cook and want
to get better at it. favs include italian, mexican, indian, thai,
and classic pizza n burger joints. i like red wine and drink
socially. for example, i love a good margarita at a mexican place.
when i'm at home my cooking/eating tends toward italian. i'm always
reading at least 3 or 4 books, and i usually have some kind of
music playing in my home.
The six things I could never do without
morning coffee, internet connection, my friends, music, books, andy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
all kinds of things and i definitely spend a lot of time thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
having dinner with friends, or going to hear a band, or maybe
playing music somewhere myself, or enjoying a quiet evening at
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
