Father. Small Biz Owner. Musician.
My son comes first in my life. Although it's been said so many times to the point of triteness (if that's a word), children have a profoundly life-altering effect on a person. No prouder dad has ever existed, even when I'm being assaulted with the same Justin Bieber song time. time. and time. and time again.
My other passion is my work. My parents are farmers, and I graduated college as a musician, so after working a couple of "real" jobs and doing the middle management thing, I started my own online company and am greatly enjoying it. Never had a better boss and it gets me back to my roots of working for myself and having direct control over success or failure. Super stressful, but super rewarding
I'm into music from Punk to Hip Hop to Country and all points in between. I love to play music...Strangely enough, I had a much easier time finding other musicians in Austin than I do here
I've been called a music snob, but I'm more of the opinion that people in Phoenix need to open their ears to more than house music and "Pumped up Kicks"
I love sports, primarily participating in them so always up for basketball, flag football, golf, tennis, bowling, pool...Whatever.
I play guitar.
I play basketball
I love snowboarding
I love the dives in Scottsdale and Phoenix. If the bar's not at least a little raw, I probably won't like it
I'm one of the fortunate ones. Great family. Amazing friends. Doing stuff that I love to do.
In another person: Not looking for anything really specific. The only quality that I appreciate across the board is a sense of humor and wit. Wait, I guess that's 2 qualities.
All I ask of you is one thing: please don’t be cynical. I hate cynicism — it’s my least favorite quality and it doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard, and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.
