My self-summary
I'm a teacher and musician. I'm originally from Maryland, but really love the west coast and can't imagine leaving.

I love riding my bike down to the beach and up the bike path to Venice for happy hour. Hefeweisen has been my favored flavor lately: soap and flowers. I really love to cook and can make pretty great sushi.

I'm so happy to have a job I love. I used to be an engineer and hated it so much that I did a 180 and changed career paths. I'm definitely about living a life you enjoy rather than fulfilling others' expectations.

I'm extremely passionate about my music and have been spending countless hours lately in the studio and at my computer producing my band's first full-length album. The excitement is really building as it's starting to come together. In fact, I'm too excited not to share our progress!

Since I'm working at the computer a lot, you're welcome to keep me company. AIM: SheinkopT
