My self-summary
I love going for runs and playing with my dog, also getting out and having stupid and/or ridiculous adventures with friends. I'm the unusual pianist who loves playing for auditions and improvising, I play musicals, cabarets, and random gigs here and there on the piano, fiddle, trumpet and bass (getting better). I'll sing too if you ask nicely. Creating food and feeding people makes me happy, and I especially love cooking with/for friends and family. I get pretty excited talking about music culture and education, also the history, techniques, and cultures of every kind of food.
What I’m doing with my life
For play - playing/recording piano et al for theater
For work - transportation safety research, education, and analysis management, doing my time for 4-6 years in the real world, next wanting to go back to school for masters/PhD in engineering... or something like that
I’m really good at
- cooking anything and everything in sight into a tasty meal
- playing whatever you want on just about any instrument you hand me
- casually debating interesting current events etc
- playing with and training animals
- fixing not working things
The first things people usually notice about me
tall, always seem to have delicious treats around, get way too excited discussing really random things, easily distracted
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
anything made with good fresh ingredients, good fun, and decent technique. I'm currently cooking a lot of Japanese and Mexican food

On a typical Friday night I am
either performing music or theater, out with friends for a drink, or having friends over for food, many drinks, and music
You should message me if
you're hungry
or you need to make music
or you love to laugh while thinking
or you like jamming out and moving your body
and you like dogs
The two of us
