Music is a huge part of my life. I listen to it for pleasure. I make music in my spare time as a creative outlet. It is also a central part of my business.
I'm kind to strangers and a great friend to those who know me well.
I spend quite a bit of time in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco.
When I can, I make music - nu disco, house, and tech house. Occasionally I perform live or DJ. However, I don't really pursue it as a career anymore. It is fun and creatively fulfilling.
I'm a social person by nature. Time with friends is very important.
I love to be outside - running, basketball, biking, skateboarding, hiking, BBQing and playing music on the roof deck.
I have an awesome dog who acts as my snoozeless alarm clock. She is determined to make me a morning person, but I'm a night owl at heart.
