My self-summary
I am an eternal optimist and believe that man is fundamentally good despite our proverbial fall from grace. I am actively searching for a way to get back into the garden! I believe that laugher is essential to one's well being and I try and crack-up as much as possible. I live for live music, whether playing it or listing to others. I love to travel and have played in almost every state (as well as a two week tour of Japan) with my old band. I love experiencing new cultures and trying new things. I did semester at sea in college and it changed my teenage myopic view of the world.
I've toned done my wanderlust somewhat but, I recently bought a new Airstream Bambi travel trailer for the purpose of taking long weekend trips around Texas. Just take a Friday and Monday off and we can have a mini vacay! My ethos is that I work to live not live to work. I want to meet a kind-hearted gal who is intelligent, likes the outdoors, is interested in art/film and who would travel the world with me. I am fiercely independent and am attracted to woman that are similar. I love spending quality time with my friends and family but, every now and again, I need a day to myself to think and reflect. That being said, I would be willing to settle down with the right gal. I own my own home and am financially stable. I find pure joy spending time with my family and the outdoors. I don't really care about external appearances at this point in my life; if we have things in common and you have a good heart we will probably get along famously. If you have cute furry friends you should invite them along.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a professional photographer by day and a woodworker/luthier by night. I shoot mostly weddings and portraiture but, recently I have been shooting the myriad of music festivals in our great city for an online magazine. In my off time I like to build wacky furniture and acoustic guitars/ukuleles.
I’m really good at
Playing the guitar and drums, self-deprecating humor, finding out how things work, listening, making my friend Anneke laugh until she wets her pants, manipulating light with my 5D mark 3, growing tomato plants that never fruit, and planning adventures.

The six things I could never do without
My guitar, my camera, my family, my friends, my bike, my iphone (I know, I know...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
meditation, design, finding the meaning, music, art, film, the world, photography, philosophy, philanthropy, adversity, the human condition, travel, wood, tools, where to empty my Airstream's black water tank, culinary adventures....and puppies
On a typical Friday night I am
at a dive bar, at a show, meditating, cooking, watching a movie, sipping bourbon and playin' the guitar on my hammock or just maxin' n relaxin'
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I thought I discovered that I had a third nipple once...unfortunately, it turned out to be just a spider bite. Also, I have a mirror image identical twin brother (look it up!). Or, just read this if you are semi-interested and lazy...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twin
