My self-summary
I love stories and songs, and believe that shared stories and songs create bonds that can be hard to break. The bonds that can be forged through such commonality can be unbreakable, yet in some cases, could never occur without it.
Now on first shift, actually have evenings and weekends.
I'm a musician trained on flute and violin, with a degree in composition. I also play a little bit of mandolin and sang in concert choir in college.

I am a musician, well read, and philisophical
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure that out while I hold a regular job to pay the bills. Contemplating life, God, and what I should do. Songwriting or composing, depending on what stuck in my head. Designing a game or few in my spare time (card and board, not video). Happy to play music about every chance I get now, which is much more than it used to be working 2nds.
I’m really good at
Music- I'm in a Celtic band and used to play at church as well.(May return, just on a break).
Meandering through a conversation, taking it through 4 or 5 subjects, and back to the original. This can be disconcerting to some.
Studying a multitude of subjects.

The six things I could never do without
Stories, songs, friends, games, laughter....oops that's five. Oh well.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
music, poetry, stories, the things that dictate the way we relate and transmit that relationship
game design and theory- the mechanics of making choices
On a typical Friday night I am
