My self-summary
Okay, let’s see, where to begin…

I have newly returned to Seattle to plant roots and dig in for the long haul. I’ve lived and travelled all over the world, seen a plethora of beautiful landscapes, and have decided that this majestic corner of the Earth is a place that truly feels like home.

I’m an artist. I play the drums professionally and write music for a couple of different bands, go on tour every now and again, and enjoy vibrations as my primary form of expression. I also produce, engineer, and mix records. I’m building a studio right now with a fellow engineer and band mate in Seattle, and hope to have that fully operational and bringing in lucrative funds within the next few years. I’m also a writer who is working on finishing a novel on post-traumatic stress disorder (I’m a Marine Corps Veteran) to help people suffering from childhood abuse and the horrors of warfare, as well as a collection of short stories.

I do like going out to catch shows, visit the museum, and hiking, but I’m most comfortable at home cooking a good meal, watching a good film or some of the new fantastic television shows coming out, reading a good book while enjoying a cup of tea, listening to music on vinyl, or sitting around and talking for hours on end with a bottle of wine or a nice glass of bourbon.

I love to travel. Seeing this beautiful planet is something I will continue to do. I am always excited to meet and interact with other cultures to see how they make their way through this fascinating gift of life. On the agenda is Paris, Ireland, South America, and the Great Rift Valley in Africa; more to come as more money rolls in.

I thoroughly enjoy learning. I try and learn something new every day. I’ve studied major religions, American history, human civilization, physics, chemistry, and astronomy, with no intention to stop any time soon. I find life a fascinating occurrence, and look forward to what I may uncover next.

I have a dog named Saturn. She is awesome. She is half pit bull half mastiff, and a sweetheart. Basically, she is the closest thing to me. I adore her.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying not to waste time. I am writing a novel, producing records, playing drums for multiple groups, taking long walks through the void, playing with my dog, talking about physics, watching things that are funny, doing copious amounts of research, reading books, cooking delicious food, working out, going on hikes, cleaning my house, appreciating art and sleeping.
I’m really good at
Raising both eyebrows at the same time, spotting a phony, reciting movie quotes, mixing a record, cooking food, lifting heavy things, memorizing music, making cocktails, training a dog, and tying shoes.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes, big earrings, genuine smile, and tattoos.

Companionship
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the cosmos, life, and the motions of the oceans.
On a typical Friday night I am
At work, or one of the following: checking out live music, setting up a tent for camping, reading, building a fire, writing, sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was on the reality television show "Excused". It was one interesting experience and by no way reality.
