My self-summary
First off, I have 3 kids (12,15,18) that I love very much. They live with their mother out of state. I have them in the summer and at Thanksgiving or Christmas. Sorry if this is a problem.

I grew up on the North Side of Chicago. The son of a Beatnik Writer, Jazz Critic Dad & a sunday school teacher mom. I was a precocious child but that didn't last as Rock & Roll stunted my growth in college. I was always athletic, I played football, hockey, & baseball, but never fit in with the jocks. Although I let other football players cheat off me on tests. After college I became a professional musician for 10 years. Got married, moved to N.M., had kids, divorced.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, Playing music, raising my kids part time, trying to be a good role model.
I’m really good at
I really am a great guitarist. Also a very good hockey player for my age. Old and slow but always in position.
The first things people usually notice about me
My striking Norwegian good looks or my sometimes self-effacing manner.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like Indie Film & Music. For film favorites are Jim Jarmusch & Gus Van Sant. All time favorite film is Dr. Strangelove. For music 16 Horsepower, Flat Duo Jets, Nick Cave, 40's, 50's Blues & Country, Louis Prima. Too much to list.
The six things I could never do without
My kids, music, art, architecture (I have a degree in City Planning), Hockey (hoping to play into my 70's), Chicago Style Pizza ( at the risk of sounding like a snob , the closest good Pan Pizza is Rosati's in Phoenix)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music (Still Playing) & the Tiny House Movement
On a typical Friday night I am
Wondering why more good bands don't come to Abq.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was a domineering teenager( I was a jerk) and young adult that became a compassionate human being. Having kids & getting divorced are both enlightening & humbling.
You should message me if
You like people who aren't run of the mill.
