My self-summary
I am most passionate about all things musical. Creating, playing or listening to music in all its shapes and forms drives my life. I hope to share the magic of the world in the music I create.

I am deliriously happy with my wife and have no plans to replace her. We are, however, open to what life may throw our way in terms of friendships or possibly beyond with the right person(s).

London was fun. Sadly, back home in Ohio.

Looking for a workout buddy? I'm working to get back into "fighting trim" and wouldn't mind someone who could push me along the path. I was 200# at my lightest and I'd like to get back to that point. I'm, thankfully, not as heavy as I've been, but 250# is more than I want to be.

I am empathic, mellifluous, and erudite
What I’m doing with my life
I am a freelance percussionist, composer and web designer. I recently taught at a community college as an adjunct professor of music, teaching primarily theory. I'm now a full-time casino employee.
I’m really good at
Music , computers and games (video, board, card, whatever).

I'm also fairly good at public speaking and editing and it appears I'm good at teaching, too. Though I work better with college-aged students.
The first things people usually notice about me
My wife said she noticed my eyes and smile first (though she's lying, because she admitted it was actually my ass). I would have thought my height (I'm fairly tall). If I'm wearing my glasses, my eyes are not as noticeable (damn you near-sightedness!). Since I don't like to wear my glasses anymore, I try to stay in contacts as much as possible.

Six things I could never do without
Music, My Family, My Friends, Internet access, Innovation, Creativity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
life and faith, computers, music, humor, design and baseball.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends or home with friends. Usually games are involved and often a movie or other DVD festivity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a little OCD. Living with a roommate this past year has really opened my eyes to just how much I like things in a certain spot and kept in a certain manner. I'm learning to live with things not exactly as they could be, but I've found I'm more cluttered in my life because of it.
You should message me if
You're interested in getting to know someone as a friend first and seeing where life decides to take things. I'm willing to stay open to whatever type of friendship/relationship develops.
The two of us
