If you would like an idea of what my life is about watch these:
As of August 13, 2013 I have moved from Olympia to Seattle after moving from San Diego, California to Olympia 2 years ago and I gotta say, I absolute love it here.
Below is my resume:
My life is music.
I'm quite the nerd.
I LOVE COOKING.
I am a compilation of some of the greatest failures and triumphant victories of all times.
I AM NOT PERFECT. But I aim to be the best I can with what I have.
I love instrumentation to the point were I want to learn how to play every instrument I see.
I am loyal, and will strive to bring the best out of any relationship I have (family, platonic, and romantic).
I'm a firm believer that any type of real relationship has to grow from a strong and trusting friendship.
I'm also a full time professional musician. I do studio recordings (mainly guitar and piano) for hire, give lessons, and play shows with incredible artists and groups all along the west coast. Everyday is a humbling experience considering I get the opportunity to learn from the best musicians I've ever met...for a living.
...that's about it and I'm beyond content with it.
As far as the future is concerned, my goal is to make music that will inspire a positive change in life. Music is the one true experience that has been with me through everything, and I'm devoting my life to understanding, respecting, and sharing it with as many people as I can.
I also plan on starting a new approach to the music industry. I want to change how touring, venues, marketing, networking and various other things are being used and promote the idea that music is a relationship between players and listeners, not just buyers and sellers. We need to cut out the middle man (labels) and get back to the basics. The power of music belongs to the listeners and the players, not these companies. I have tons of ideas to change this and am dedicated to seeing them through.
Writing music to the point where I dont sleep for 48 hours.
Providing an unbiased opinion.
Being comfortable in what most consider uncomfortable situations.
Making super badass paper airplanes.
Mixing drinks....(thats a lie)
Hide and seek. (I'm kind of a ninja)
Also I occasionally wear suits and ties. I try to keep it as classy as possible.
The Looking Glass Wars, anything Chuck Palahniuk, the social contract, Oryx and Crake, and many more.
Coffee and Cigarettes, Where the Wild things are, Romeo And Juliet (new version), Cruel Intentions, Forrest Gump, inception.
*Correction, when I say "everything" I may have been a little hasty. There are a small select sections of music I'm not into (example: you will never hear me blasting "someday" by nickleback on my iPhone). However, I do appreciate their work, and try to give credit where credit is due.
The politics behind forgiving vs. forgetting.
"how did they write that?" while listening to music.
Family and Friends.
Figuring out my sex schedule during the Zombie Apocalypse (this is important.)
Staying true and loyal.
Daily fun adventures.
Spiders make me squirm. My Arachnophobia is as large as America's debt.
Oh and I can recite every word to the lion king. My dad died the same year that movie came out so it's beyond important to me.
