My self-summary
I fix people's houses for a living. I also teach guitar lessons/music theory on the side. Mostly beginners to intermediate but I also teach advanced music theory & its application.

I workout almost every day. I was in a really bad car accident in 2011 that messed up my spine. I was laid up for about 3 years and wasn't able to do anything. I was barely able to walk. I have since then exercised to get better and not be in so much pain. I'm to a point now where I feel pretty good. I'm at 200 lbs now and getting more muscular every day ;).

I also play guitar/vocals for my new band. In my old band we opened for Obituary, Nasty Savage, and we played with 100s of locals from all parts of FL, GA, NC, TN, KY, and NY.
What I’m doing with my life
I play lead guitar for Archangel, a local power thrash metal band. Our next show is on 10-28 at the Orpheum as direct support for Seven Kingdoms.

I also play lead guitar/vocals for a yet unnamed prog-metal band. We are currently working on our 5 song album that is scheduled to be out at the beginning of next year.

Exercising and spending time with my dog. And practice, practice, practice my guitar.
I’m really good at
Fixing things, playing guitar(electric or classical), cracking jokes/having a good time, chess, crossword puzzles, cooking, massages(guitar fingers)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm 6'3", tattoos, my deep voice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I usually don't watch much T.V.but some that I'll catch on HULU or other online sites - The Simpsons, Brooklyn 99, Venture Brothers, Modern Family, Family Guy, American Dad, AFV,

My favorite bands are : Down, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, COC, Acid Bath, Pantera, King Diamond/Mercyful Fate, Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, System of a Down, Lamb of God...you get the picture.

It's been a long while since I read any books other than biographies about musicians. I'm now reading both Blacktooth Grin about "Dimebag" Darrell from Pantera and a Music Law book.

Most of Steven King's older writings - The Stand, It, Christine, Carrie, The Shining, Dark Towers 1-4, Thinner, Different Seasons, The Dead Zone, The Dark Half, Firestarter, and a ton more.

About 30 of Dead Koontz including Phantoms, The Bad Place, Mr Murder, The House of Thunder, etc.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm always thinking about music. Writing new songs or just improving existing ones. I teach guitar for a living so I'm coming up with new lessons for my students.

I'm renovating my house 1 room at a time so I like to think about different improvements I can do.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home or a friends house cooking out, writing music for the new album, or at a concert/Brass Mug or Crowbar. I like to support local musicians.
You should message me if
You want to hang out with me at my show(heavy metal) and have a kick-ass time.
