My self-summary
I am a graduate student at SOU and I am performing with the Left Edge Percussion Group and working with the SOU Raider Band Drumline as part of my assistantship.

I identify myself as a music educator. But, I've been known to be the teacher type in my other jobs away from music.

I am looking for good people to share knowledge, perspective, and stories with.
What I’m doing with my life
Practicing as much as possible.
Achieving mild success at meal planning and cooking
I’m really good at

Getting distracted by people's pets

Doing Dishes

Playing the marimba

The first things people usually notice about me
Changes pretty often I feel. Wardrobe, playing, car, teaching, hat, company, language, etc.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: most recents include: The world in Six Songs, The Real Frank Zappa book, Musicophilia, 1000 recordings you need hear before you die, Check the Technique (a brief history of hip hop).

Movies: Haven't kept up on movies really. Show me one.

Music: Funk/soul, hardcore, punk rock, hip-hop, jazz, chamber ensembles, drum corps, world/ethnic musics.

Shows: Archer, old school simpson's, The Wire, Daredevil, Peaky Blinders, stand up comedy, Anthony Bourdain, Chopped

I also haven't owned a TV in several years.
The six things I could never do without
- the opportunity for expression
- musical exploration
- new projects
- garlic, onions, mushrooms, and cheese (not necessarily together)
- perspective
- my marimba
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can further myself as a person, musician, educator, and professional.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either in the practice room or out having drinks with my fellow grad students.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tear up at almost any well directed father/son moment.

I also really enjoy Antiques Roadshow.
