My 2 sons are AWESOME! Love them to death, love our guy time, love being a dad. I teach private music lessons (and work in real estate banking, but only until my studio gets big enough for me to teach full time). I play violin mainly, but also play and teach viola, cello, piano, and voice. Optimism is my middle name. There is ALWAYS a bright side and I will ALWAYS find it. Happiness is a choice and I love being happy.
Music composition is also a very important part of my life. Music is such an important outlet and I enjoy sharing what I do with those around me.
I love traveling. My mother is from Germany and I served my mission there. My parents own a tour company and lead 2-3 European tours a year. Fun stuff!
How can not just LOVE the restored gospel??!! It is absolutely the driving force in my life. Without the atonement there can be no happiness, healing, fresh starts, or friendships. I owe everything I am to my Savior and I strive to emulate His example. Constant self improvement is very important to me. I love my priesthood, and will not trade it for anything.
I write music (songs, movie scores, theatrical arias, you name it!). I also like being with friends as it provides emotional release as well as the opportunity to build up and to be lifted by others. There are a variety of things that interest me but I tend to gravitate to theater, social gatherings, and outdoor activities (boating, shooting, archery, hiking, rock climbing, all depends on my mood).
