Hey there... I'm a restauranteur, semi-pro opera singer. From
Oklahoma, I have settled here in Knoxville after graduate school
and enjoy the little gems that Knox Vegas has to offer.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I work as a restaurant manager and spend as much time as
possible working on a bit of music. Otherwise... hanging with
friends, soaking up the maximum amount from my Y membership (aka
balancing my tree pose), exploring my creative side and listening
I’m really good at
being patient... singing, playing a bit of accordion, attempting a
perfect loaf of bread and just being "chill."
The first things people usually notice about me
my size... I am the preverbal "big guy" but I feel extremely
comfortable with my body. Otherwise, I hope it is my laughter and
generally good mood.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Nathaniel Hawthorne is one of my favorite authors. But any
historical fiction is good for me.
Big movie buff...minus being able to quote every other line.
American Beauty, Casablanca, Luhrmann's Romeo & Juliet,
Midsummer Nights Dream,... the classics and other dramas.
Listen to a lot of jazz (Parker, Davis, Coltrane) but enjoy all
kinds of music... my pandora site has well over 20 stations.
Crooners, punk, indie-rock, alternative, classical, etc.
My taste in food is pretty much like my taste in music... anything
with lots of flavor is ok with me. Mid-rare, lots of garlic, and
fresh produce get me excited about any meal.
The six things I could never do without
pen & paper
the open road
hoppy beer/ black coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my job, how to spend my time & ways I can make a difference in
this little world of ours.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually working, but otherwise checking out some theatre or a live
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nervous about meeting someone... online.
You should message me if
there was anything that caught your eye so far... happy to meet for
that simple cup of coffee. Not looking for a hook-ups, four-twenty
resources, or to be a sugar daddy....
