Anyway, I'm a 6'4" "gargantubeast" (thanks to my best friend for the term). I am friendly and I try to be gentle with all the little people. I tend to not know my own strength sometimes and I apologize in advance for the inconvenience. There are two main things in my life: music and sports. I've played trombone since I was in 3rd grade but haven't been a part of an ensemble in a few years, sadly. I love going to shows, football games, or hockey games; but I love pretty much any sporting event I go to and I'm open to trying new things. Despite my deep love for music and sports, I love talking about anything and can actually get serious and have good conversations. I love thoughtful discussions on whatever the topic. So um ... Random Facts:
My favorite band of all time is Thrice.
I love hockey (huge Tampa Bay Lightning fan, yes Lightning die-hards exist) but love doesn't really begin to describe it properly.
Despite being born in Kentucky, I was raised a Florida State Seminoles fan.
I got in a fight with a parked car and ended up getting a concussion.
I've been asked for my autograph while waiting to get an autograph, despite the fact that I am not famous in any way, shape, or form.
I am one of those people who can't remember lyrics unless they hear music.
I had a cat named after a Stephen Lynch song.
I've injured my knee more than an average person does in an entire lifetime.
