My self-summary
Hello :) My name is Erik. I'm a life long musician(particularly a drummer), and currently play for a local fusion rock band. I also play session drums for a regional pop rock artist and am closely associated with the region's premier recording studio.

I'm very passionate about the environment and like to spend as much time outdoors as possible. I'm rather fond of camping, hiking, small boating, swimming, and have even been known to do some rock climbing from time to time :P I'm very into fitness and try to get top the gym 6 days a week.

I'm very easy going, and light spirited though know when it's time to be serious. I generally prefer a quiet and relaxed environment with close friends than huge parties, busy bars and clubs(which are very much so not my scene). Also I really enjoy wearing suits, so pretty much any excuse to dress up is good with me :P.
