My self-summary
I am generally having a blast at life, working at a cool company, playing music with amazing people, eating great food every day, and still enjoying the perfect quiet moments, too.

I originally wanted to be a scientist, lawyer, or president of a bank, but I am now, after pursuing a career in music, simply working as a top manager at a tiny business.
What I’m doing with my life
Moving forward: I don't know if its my German heritage, but I have to keep working on something or I get anxious. Getting excited about each day (well, after a coffee or six). Meeting new people, trying new things.
I’m really good at
Making music, cooking, solving problems, and persistence.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm tall, that my eyes are so brown they're black. I can be quiet. I have a very goofy sense of humor that often gets me in trouble. I like to think that I am analytic, and don't talk unless I have something to say.

Also, tattoos. I give the impression that I got them and outgrew them and cover them with business attire, but in fact, I just got tattooed in February. I like them all, even the bad ones. They indicate brotherhood in the dudes who got tattooed before there were good tattooers everywhere.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: weird fascination with anything WW2: Stephen Ambrose, etc. Science Fiction, Business Press, and popular science round out the selection. I am well read, but I don't love any of the classics. Soft spot for Wuthering Heights.

Movies: anything: from Lars Von Trier, the Cohen Brothers, to Rambo, I am a child of the eighties, the cold war, and anything that cuts right to the human condition. Inception and The Prestige are recent favorites, I will never turn down a good war movie. Children of Men!

Shows: TV? It's so much better than it ever was! Mad Men is a particular favorite, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, the Mindy Project, Dexter are my current iTunes choices. I loved Battlestar Galactica, hated Lost. The Sopranos and Oz were great in their time, haven't aged well, but MASH certainly has.

Music: YES! Just saw Nick Cave in Philadelphia, Morrissey was the last concert before that that made me feel anything, love indie and friend's music. Jenny Owen Youngs is my current go to. I grew up on Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, had a crazy Led Zeppelin and Metallica run, Leonard Cohen, Arcade Fire, Paganini and Beethoven. I am currently thriving on Country and Western, looking for a champion to unlock hip Hop for me. Music is the fundamental language.

Food: french, italian, lao, thai, sushi, american, pennsylvania dutch, german-american, alsatian, irish, spanish, good god, lay it on me! I sell food for a living, I love food for a living.
Six things I could never do without
Really, really good lipids in the kitchen (olive oil, butter, cheese)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work, play and history.
Love, war, and poverty.
Streets, things and holding them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Improving my home, playing music, appreciating music. Reading.
You should message me if
You want adventure, or to go to a museum, or to talk about anything.
The two of us
