I was born and raised in Southern California and have spent most of
life here. My background is in anthropology and music which pretty
much define my main interests, so you are much more likely to find
me wandering around cultural events, musical performances or
art/museum exhibits. Watching organized sporting events are not a
priority for me although its not completely out of the question. I
would attend such things, its just their are other things I would
rather do. Traveling being one of them, I've been to most of North
and Central America and a few places in Asia, Bali and Java being
favorites. I'd love to do some more exploring at sometime in the
near future. Oh, and I work in the Music school of a local
University, which I enjoy very much but keeps me way too busy
during the school year.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to be creative, helpful and in the moment.
I’m really good at
Taking things apart, I need to learn how to put them back together

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where is that special someone, how can I cut down on my work
commute time. Now that my living room remodel is done, when am I
going to get back to the hallway remodel.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually stuck in traffic somewhere. Ok ok, serious answer, most
Friday nights I am at home working on some sort of creative project
involving music with dance, video, or all three. Sometimes you may
actually find me out visiting friends, or at a concert, or at an
art opening. But of late you'll find me cleaning out the closets in
my hallway. ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have yet to watch a single episode of Breaking Bad. lol
