My self-summary
For starters, I'm not very good at talking myself up, so I guess here's goes nothing. I'm Tony. I moved home from the Navy (former aviator) and am back in my home town for good now and loving every minute of it. For an ex-military guy I'd say I'm pretty laid back and am goofball in my group of friends who will do anything get everyone smiling. I'm a big family man and will do anything and everything (including taking a leave of absence from work and moving back in with my folks after my pops had a heart attack) for my family or my friends who are like brothers and sisters to me. I kinda a big softie and I guess as my Godmother says, I have a heart of gold and an will of iron.
One of my huge passions/addictions is music. I'm pretty much a self proclaimed band junkie and stage whore haha. I play guitar, bass, piano, harmonica, drums...pretty much anything I can get my hands on and make something beautiful out of! I also work at a music store so my life is filled with beautiful music 24/7/365! I also love to cook. I learned from my Italian grandmother who barely speaks a lick of English so you could say my blood runs thick with red wine and red sauce haha. Being a Navy guy, anything that has to do water also gets my engine started! I love to sail and fish and can just spend a day sitting on the beach with a cold one enjoying this little slice of paradise I'm lucky enough to call home. I love to go out for a beer or two on the weekends, fire up the smokers for a backyard BBQ with my buddies, and pack up the car for a random road trip, but at the same time, am a hopeless romantic at heart and enjoy doing dinner and a movie at home or spending a lazy day sleeping in and ending it with a good glass of cabernet sauvignon and the sunset.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, living life to the fullest and making up for time I lost at home while I was in the Navy!

Work wise, I work in a local music shop, volunteer coach wrestling, and am playing local gigs with my band and working on our first album.
I’m really good at
Well I already rambled on about my love for music and have been told my current band isn't that bad. I will say my cooking isn't that bad either haha. My Italian and my BBQ will win over any heart haha.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure, cause I'm not the one meeting me for the first time haha. Probably my goofy smile or my wisecracking sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Surprisingly, I'm a big reader. My favorite author of all time has to be Ernest Hemingway. I love his writing style that can blend his manly stories with a love story and make those stories fly off the page. My favorite one by him is The Sun Also Rises.

Movies - I'm a big comedy fan! If it makes me laugh, I will watch it. I do have a bit of a nerdy side and love my super heroes too (my favorites being Captain America and Iron Man).

TV - Lets see...Breaking Bad, Family Guy, Big Bang Theory, South Park, American Dad, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League (all time favorite!!!), SNL (huge fan), Doctor Who, and my one reality show guilty pleasure...the Amazing Race, just to name a few.

Music - Well I've rambled on about this for quite some time but I'll listen to everything from classic rock, to country, to punk, to reggae and ska. A few of my favorites are The Who, Social Distortion, The Dirty Heads, Ben Harper, The Beatles, and Frank Turner. And I can't forget a shameless plug for my band Graffiti The Llamas!

Food - Anything and everything. There's so much good food out there, it's a shame not to try everything twice (just to make sure I didn't hate it)...and being a guy, if it's got bacon in it, try it three times haha
Six things I could never do without
1. My friends and family
2. My guitar
3. Good food
4. The sea
5. A night out every now and then
6. Laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Too many things. The inner workings of a man's brain can be a scary place haha.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with a few of my buddies, playing a show or jamming out, or just relaxing at home with a cold one and a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Just ask one of my buddies, they'll embarrass me for days haha
You should message me if
You actually sifted through my ramblings and want to know more!
The two of us
