My self-summary
I am a composer, producer, and doctoral student navigating the joys of academia. I spend a lot of time in rehearsals, performances, and planning said events. I've been in KC for several years and am still seeking out new social activities around town. Originally a Denver native, but promises of advanced education brought me to Kansas City.
I love travel (especially around Eastern Europe), music, social action (doing something... anything... to better this world), and apparently parentheses.
I am also a bit of a gaming geek. I love challenging games of Scrabble or all out Risk-style strategy games. And fun little card games that last 5-10 minutes.
What I’m doing with my life
I thoroughly enjoy writing music and focus as much time as possible on it, in addition to teaching, and directing music groups. The rest of the time I'm usually at rehearsals, reading, gaming, and occasionally jogging or hiking.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at dancing a polka. I waltz and swing dance too, for those more formal occasions.
People enjoy playing my music so I must be doing something right there too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I get mistaken for others often. No one famous. Just random others. So I guess first looks can be deceiving?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy reading. Period. But I really enjoy pulp novels - science fiction and mysteries. I'm currently reading a great mystery series by Craig Johnson set in Wyoming. Wonderfully vivid depictions of my stomping grounds. The rest of the time, I'm usually reading music books, artist biographies, or something by Terry Pratchett.
I'm a sucker for Mel Brooks. History of the World and Young Frankenstien were wonderful movies.
Music is a wide open morass. I listen to so much that although I'm sure I have favorites I'm not sure what they are. Moxy Fruvous, Oingo Boingo, Devotchka, Shostakovich, Satie, and Stravinsky (this list changes often).
Six things I could never do without
Music, staff paper, music, keyboard, books, and music?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Writing music. And cheesy mysteries.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a concert. Concerts of all types. First week in KC, I saw the orchestra at Kauffman and a punk show at Vandals. It was a fun week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to read these profiles from the bottom up.
