My self-summary
Like many others here, I find writing about oneself to be awkward at best, ridiculously egotistical at worst. To spare you all the pain and agony, I'll be brief.

I'm a working musician/artist.
Fortunately I've had a long running career to subsidize the above activities; it's in a field that many at first think is not related to the above, but I think they're very closely related. I will not bore you with details - I'd be more than happy to share if asked. (There are hints throughout though. If you make it to the end, you should have a pretty good idea of what I might do.)

I can be intense, sarcastic, and darkly humorous.
I can be laid-back, sincere, and just plain silly.

I'm a pretty open minded; I'm always looking to learn something new and broaden my perspective. This includes a fondness for travel.

A close friend described me as an "extroverted introvert". I would say this is fairly accurate.

Also, I'm a divorced single dad. (It would be disingenuous not to mention this...)
