My self-summary
I teach and play the drums for a living. I'm fortunate to be able to apply my passions towards my career as well as influence some very amazing kids along the way.

I enjoy experiencing museums, nature, live music, dive bars, and places beyond where i live and work. I also enjoy cooking (mostly vegetarian) and spending time with friends and other artists. I don't play video games (other than wasting time on my iPad), and I don't have a TV. I like being out in the world even if I am by myself.

I'm looking for people that evaluate a person based on their personal qualities and ethos. Not their car, income, or toys.
What I’m doing with my life
Being a barista, teaching my middle school and high school percussion kids, pouring beer at Pigeon Head, and waiting to hear back from a graduate program in Ashland.
I’m really good at
Rock, paper, scissors
Funky beats
Making soup
Cheesy jokes
The first things people usually notice about me
Lately it's been my long hair and my pretty lattes
