Six things I could never do without
1. My conscience (moral compass), faith, contentment in knowing thyself.
2. My amazing family & Friends<-- (this includes my dog).
3. [MUSIC: listening/experiencing it, creating it, singing & playing live for just one person or 1,000's of people].
4. My Guitars
5. My PASSION FOR LIFE: hunger to create, drive/motivation to get there, & patience during the process!
6. My Canon
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music!: morning, day, night & into my REM cycle. Trying to understand why people do what they do... Also, how I can improve myself through growth & new perspectives. Where I want to travel next. Why isn't there a loading lane/zone for Musicians Downtown? Cosmology, Quantum Physics, the Universe, Consciousness, & Enlightenment.

What happened to the delightful art of courting, wooing, dating, like the old days. There was mystery, intrigue, & the dynamics of the daters would unfold slowly but sweetly. What happened to that dance?
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm playing a gig, watching others play live music, soldering, out of town doing something adventurous, creating something: (music, jewelry, painting), relaxing at home, or hanging with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sneeze like a ninja!
You should message me if
I can't believe you made it this far! I wrote a freakin' novel it seems. Sorry no cliff notes at the moment to navigate through this overload of too much bio etc.

You like adventures. You want to go see some live music or sample great food. You would like to explore Austin with me. You think we can learn from each other. You like a challenge. You want to grab a beer/whiskey etc...

I have a job, a vehicle, my own place... Please have the same :)
The two of us
