My self-summary
‎"It's a pleasure for you all to meet me" - Tracy Jordan


I'm a musician, a teacher, a characteristic Libra, and a right-brainer. My world view has been shaped by Christians, pagans, yuppies, hippies, rednecks, and socialites. I laugh irreverently when I shouldn't, and I'm relentlessly friendly despite a crippling case of resting-bitch-face. I love nature, great food and libations, and animals (with the exception of spiders, which are Satan incarnate). I vibe well the the Autumn months, which I believe are the most charming and seductive time of year. #PumpkinThings
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a music teacher and private lesson instructor with a M.A. in Instrumental Conducting. I just moved to VA Beach to teach band and keyboard at 10 private schools in the Hampton Roads area.

I recently started a partnership with Push Comedy Theater in Norfolk to provide music for some projects going on there, so I'm excited for that to take off.

As far as life goals, I'd like to eventually try my hand at gardening (tomatoes and herbs) and dancing (swing, salsa). I've traveled, but I have to do more of it; I mean its severely necessary.
I’m really good at
... cooking. I don't bake [flour everywhere] but I like to get creative at mealtime. Aaaaaand I play piano by ear, so I can probably play your favorite song or at least fake it :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Music the Brain and Ecstasy, Kitchen Confidential, A Whole New Mind.

Television Shows: 30 Rock, No Reservations, HIMYM, Dexter, Last Week Tonight, Arrested Development, New Girl, Downton Abbey, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Brain Games, Westworld, Stranger Things, The Night Of, Black Mirror, 3%, the OA.

Music: Muse is my favorite band in the whole wide world, followed by Keane, Fitz and the Tantrums, Lake Street Dive, and Ben Folds Five. I worship jazz pianists Bill Evans and Dave Brubeck as though they were gods. I'm usually rocking WHRO or WHRV on the radio as I'm driving around.

I have an unhealthy crush on Christen Press, Lindsey Stirling, Ingrid Michaelson, Sara Bareilles, Brandi Carlile, Zooey Deschanel, Grace Potter, Emily Haines, ZZ Ward, Sherri DuPree Bemis, and Aoife O'Donovan.

I'm a medium rare foodie who thinks the pig is the noblest of all edible animals.
Six things I could never do without
my hands and fingers (my livelihood)
close network of friends

Here's what I COULD do without:
people who carry guns in public (not affiliated with law enforcement or armed services)
trucks that "roll coal" with confederate flags
fast food restaurants
domestic 'lite' beers
refined sugars
I spend a lot of time thinking about
climate change
the Big Food industry
travel destinations (Mediterranean Sea, please)
being a Philadelphia Eagles fan in Virginia
owning a baby tiger
opening my own music academy
buying a bar and naming it Puzzles...
On a typical Friday night I am
not sure what to do... Back home I was in several bands so I'd usually be out gigging on weekends, but now I'm hoping to check out the local music scene as a spectator rather than a performer #SemiRetired
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I have a weakness for an attractive pair of legs...
also green eyes make me forget how to language
You should message me if
you don't believe in trickle-down economics;
you love thunderstorms;
you believe humans originated in Africa no less than 100,000 years ago;
you think golf is boring, but miniature golf is awesome;
you clap on two and four;
you have conversations with animals;
you like pumpkin patches and apple orchards;
you believe Schrödinger's cat is dead, but you would open the box anyway;
grammar is important to you

If I don't message you first, it might be because I'm doing that stupid thing where I swipe right and wait to see if you do it too. Since I don't post selfies of my biceps and my tricked-out car that runs on pure bull shark testosterone, you can imagine the rating game doesn't work out so well for me.
The two of us
