My self-summary
Thanks for visiting...I am a quirky, warm, creative, goofy, serious, caring, supportive human who strives to make the world around me a little better. I am open minded opinionated, accepting and compassionate. I strive to be honest and kind. I love to learn and experience cool things and share those things with the people around me. I am trusting and trustworthy and at times spacey...not Kevin...I consider myself a democratic socialist so politically I am very liberal and care deeply about the world and what's happening on it...and not...I love to hang out with...learn and laugh with...share life with loving bright people.
What I’m doing with my life
I am working hard at being the best human musician educator and friend I can be.

Making people feel good about themselves...sharing ideas and experiences. I can motivate students to learn and I play the saxophone. I can get people to laugh...even when it's at me.

I work very hard at being supportive of the people in my life.

I redirected my life recently- thus I eat very healthy...have lost nearly 160 pounds since Christmas 2013...more to go...but I love all types....just no more soda, junk food...etc...

Philosophy...Zinn, Gandhi, MLK, Giroux, Jesus(the sermon on the mount is socialism), Pokey, Coltrane, Beatles, Feldenkrais, Meditation.
Six things I could never do without
The people in my life
My Love Bird
My Saxophone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Love...All You Need is Love
How to make the lives of the people around me better and enjoyable..
How to improve myself
How to get better at the things I do
How to get my students to learn
The world and the injustice in it and how to improve the many problems...climate change, the assault on education, women's rights, and workers rights...wanting peace and equality.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something rediculously cool, endlessly hip, and infinately fun with somone like you...going to a concert or hearing live music at a the Green Mill...or at a movie, watching a dvd, working, hanging out with people much smarter than me...eating good food...sharing ideas...laughing...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit not can ask me anything....but then it won't be private anymore...I am very open.
You should message me if
You think we could add something to each other's lives. I am open to new friends as well as obviously looking for a romantic partner as I do like love.
The two of us
