I'm a native New Yorker with a passion for music and substance. While music is my favorite, I also have a deep love and respect for all crafts and creativities. In fact, one of the most beautiful things I have ever experienced was playing guitar while someone sat on my couch and sketched. I like to laugh and have fun. I am also honest, dependable and always happy to listen to whats on the mind of someone I care about and offer insight. I am always thrilled to try new things as well. I exercise every day whether it's swimming, a long walk or a dry gym workout. My biggest pet peeves are bullying and extreme prejudice (including racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.). I believe that we all have some prejudice; the important thing is that we manage it by keeping an open mind.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Blues, Roots, Classic Rock, R & B (late 50's through the 70's), Reggae, some Country, some Grunge/post-Grunge and whatever else sounds good to me.

Food: Almost anything but raw tomatoes, liver and gefilte fish
The six things I could never do without
Music (performing and listening), along w/all other arts
People of substance
New learning experiences
Music (it's just that important that it had to be said twice, even
though it meant passing the limit haha)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music, the well being of myself and people I care about, things
that make me laugh.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
During a scavenger hunt at sleepaway camp, a grizzly bear was on
the list, and my friends submitted me.
