I grew up in a philly suburb, went to Villanova and then began exploring the city after college.
Music has always been a encompassing part of my life as a writer, player and listener but more as a means to self-exploration then a career expectation. Career has only more recently become an interest.
Also love nature, pretty sights and socializing. I live near fairmount park which is great place to spend my weekend mornings. I'm social with high school friends but also hang out with the many creative types I've meet along the way.
I decided about two years ago web development would be a good flexible choice for myself as a career direction and I began to self teach myself how to code and design. After free-lancing and working odd jobs, i found a solid one close to me that I'm enjoying. It's quite a relief after years in constant reflection of vocation. I like to think pulling myself through the whole process helped me garner perspective.
Although, I've become a little more settled I still have a huge appetite for life. I'm always writing words and music and would love to be able to do a tour eventually. I read a lot, these days mostly books on meditation. Psychology and mindfulness studies have a strong appeal to me but there's a lot to take in between all sorts of modalities. I'm currently just taking it in. I'm also truly loving it.
I'm also really good at being patient. As much as I experienced frustration trying lots of different things during my twenties, I do think I was patiently working through a lot of my own stuff.
I like movies and shows but it's actually in this category, I'll actually go much less intellectual. Sure I can enjoy art films and have plenty of favorites but the age of 'netflix and chill' is sort of upon us. I use TV and movies to unwind and enjoy adventure and comedy.
Music I love. I go to the philadelphia folk festival every summer and it's essentially my favorites part of the year. I'm thinking about going to the Austin Psych fest this April. I love Bowie, Dylan, Byrne, Young. I dig shoe-gazers like Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. I might have a slight obsession with the Brian Jonestown Massacre.
