I appear lazy but am always at work on one thing or another.
I've had more than 40 jobs to support my life as a musician/creative type. The variety of jobs is staggering. How did I manage to get into the entertainment business, legal, financial, hospitality, and Information Technology - among the many industries? Was I really a dedicated government worker at one time? Yes! I don't get this about myself, except to say I did what I could to put a roof over my head and have something to eat, and I am fascinated by everything. I always felt like I was a sociologist doing field work when I had a 'normal' job. If you want a corporate type, look elsewhere.
I have often been a trouble-maker. Sometimes for the excitement, other times to do the right thing. I despise bullies and have taken down a few. Some bullies have exacted revenge on me. On that note, I am an American citizen in exile and will probably not return there. The US is a bad neighborhood in my experience.
I'm a scarred warrior - looking to relax. Wiser and funkier...
I want to settle somewhere and have a nest. Spain has been in my sights for years now. That dream does not fade. I may have a detour in the Czech Republic. I love Prague and always wanted to live there for a time.
I prefer American music, but nothing new. I play and write rock music fairly well. I like bits of everything related to Blues, Rock, Funk, R&B, Jazz, Country. Electric guitar, played well, is what drives me.
If you like mushy meaningless love songs or 'chick flicks', we will have a difficult time communicating. That said, a great love song with depth and simplicity can bring me to tears.

I'm a foodie and a pretty decent cook.
Don't contact me if you are controlling or careless with loved ones. If you cling to your smartphone, your arms won't be available to hold me close, so please don't call.
