My self-summary
I'm your basic red-blooded male; no more, no less. I work hard, play hard, love hard, and sometimes fall hard. Over the course of my life I have experienced some astounding highs, and some devastating lows. It has been my good fortune to know some interesting people and have some interesting experiences, and I know that more lies ahead.

I'm the unvarnished truth. I am what I am, with no pretenses, no illusions, no artificial colors or flavors, and no apologies. As I prepare to embark on the next phase of my life, I find myself seeking a similarly real woman with whom to share the journey. If that's you, then come on down!
What I’m doing with my life
Having finished my bachelor's degrees and earned my teaching certificate, I am about to embark on a new adventure as a middle school orchestra teacher. Because I don't know when to stop, I recently started working on my master's, while at the same time maintaining my army career. I'm even managing to work in a performance here and there. Things are, at long last, starting to fall into place.
I’m really good at
many things...some can even be discussed in public :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't really get to see myself from the outside, but I suspect that most folks first notice my near complete lack of a "don't say that" filter...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Pretty much reading textbooks right now...

My all-time favorite movie is Casablanca--not sure I would have the cojones to walk away like Rick favorite flicks include MASH, Gone with the Wind, the first Star Wars trilogy, the Harry Potter series, and Shrek

Favorite shows include Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men (but it just wasn't as good after Charlie Sheen left), Barney Miller, MASH, Soap

I'm a classically-trained musician, so naturally I gravitate towards so-called "classical" music. However, my iPod also has AC/DC, George Strait, Frank Sinatra, Prince, and Chuck Mangione, among many others...

I'll eat just about anything that's put in front of But when I want to dine, I prefer Italian, Mexican, and good old American steak :D
Six things I could never do without
My violin
My kids
My friends
Good books
Great music
Not necessarily in this order... :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I'm going to land once I finish school...
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing a concert, attending a concert, or racked out...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, if I said it out loud, it wouldn't be private, would it? :D
You should message me if
You want to...
The two of us
