My self-summary
Austin, TX, you old so-and-so...

I'm fully immersed in that whole "Renaissance man" groove, and taking time to all. If anything below catches your eye, chances are there's a lot more to be said about it!
What I’m doing with my life
Laying groundwork for additional musical undertakings (funk band, rock band, a capella...); and, to actually pay the bills, I work landscape and lawn care for a small company. Getting paid to be outside, and listen to KUTX all day :D

Over the past few years I've been extremely lucky with travel: I've wandered the streets of Paris, hiked in the Rockies, and read Dickens on Isla Mujeres. New Zealand is next on the list (to satisfy my love of landscapes and LOTR), and in the meantime I'll plan a few road trips around the U.S.

I have a lifelong love of camping, hiking, and Frisbee, and if you have an outdoorsy bone in your body, we'll get along just, me, nature, and Uncle Sid.
I’m really good at
Music. I've been around it my whole life, and I seem to have a knack for playing some tasty grooves.

If someone's feeling down, I'm usually able to cheer them up with a joke that's dumb and requires an explanation that tends to nullify said joke.

When I was younger I was hesitant to try new things. Now, nothing's too weird to try once, and my comfort zone tends towards the Twilight side (not the book, just a bad play on words).
The first things people usually notice about me
how I tower over the majority of my friends. Otherwise, I'd say my sense of humor and willingness to go with the flow.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Way too many to mention, so here's a grab bag of 'em:

Books: A Song of Ice and Fire, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, A House of Sky, Undaunted Courage, Animal Farm, Wind in the Willows, Nicholas Nickelby, Neil Peart's travel writings, musician autobios

Movies: LOTR, Dumb and Dumber, Forrest Gump, Some Like It Hot, The Lion King, Chaplin, Hot Fuzz, Office Space, Toy Story(ies), and just about any Christopher Guest film

Shows: King of the Hill, The Simpsons, Sherlock, South Park, Dexter, The Office, Breaking Bad, Archer, Bob's Burgers, Parks And Rec, Portlandia

Music: The Who, Rush, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, U2, Eric Clapton, Chicago, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Of Montreal, Graveyard, Shakey Graves, The Band, Waylon/Willie, Johnny Cash, Mastodon, Between The Buried And Me, Metallica, Captain Beyond, and Justin Vernon's various projects.

Food: I'll try just about anything, and I'm always down for Mexican or sushi.
Six things I could never do without
Music: Listening to it and making it...hard to beat.
Traveling. I have a goal to see the literal South Pole.
A sense of humor. Mine is a mix of satire, dry wit, and only the worst of puns.
A good bourbon....not much more to say on that.
Outdoor activities: camping, hiking, canoing, Frisbee, disc golf, swimming...
Snickers. Again, it's all been said.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Getting more tattoos....and more instruments.

How to incorporate spirituality in my life without making a label of it.

Is it selfish to pursue artistic dreams over active humanitarianism, or does being your passion make you even more capable of positive momentum in the world?
On a typical Friday night I am
out for new people and fresh experiences. Or fresh people and new experiences.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will probably beat you in a Disney lyric/sing-off.
You should message me if
you enjoy making music, being outdoors (with or without psychedelics) , or you take the term "make a day of it" as a personal challenge.

And if you like bass players, because I've heard we do it deeper...
The two of us
