Music has been part of my life since I was a quite young, and playing the piano and listening to everything from rock to world to classical keeps me centered. I grew up on the coast and love rain, fog, and the ocean. I've spent many happy weekends in the redwoods and that place will always be close to my heart. I’ve been a writer, a musician, a teacher, and a city planner, and now I'm an environmental planner who protects the water. Although our jobs do not define who we are, my resume definitely captures many of my interests.
Despite my love of nature, I also appreciate cities and I like to explore new places on foot or via public transit rather than on tour buses. I believe that learning about the history, architecture, and environmental aspects of a place before visiting it adds much to my travels. Once there, I like to seek out microbreweries, coffee houses, museums, live music, local events, and places to sit and watch people. In general, I opt for casual dress and dining over trendy and chic, but I’m equipped for either. I enjoy conversation and companionship, but I’m also very comfortable with solitude and do need a certain amount of down time.
So, there it is—a bit about my interests and, hopefully, about yours. If you happen to be that bookstore-strolling, NPR-listening, city-exploring guy and you would enjoy sharing music, museums, movies, and more, please drop me a note so that we can get to know each other.
