About Me

Just following the crowd, like a sheep.

1.  I am 29 years old, since two Thursdays ago.

2.  I was born and raised on Cape Cod, and I live there now.  The only time I didn't live here is when I was attending college on the North Shore.  I've never lived outside of Massachusetts.

3.  I studied art and majored in illustration.  This means I hate hipsters more than your average person.  Art school was teeming with them.

4.  I play the guitar, but I'm only average at it.  People that don't know how to play say I'm good.  I started when I was 12.  The first three chords I learned were Am, Em and D.

5.  I also play the bass.  I usually get stuck playing it in band situations, but I don't mind.  People who do play say I'm good.  I started out playing the upright bass, but quit after a year, because I didn't like the teacher.  I picked up the instrument again a year later in guitar form after my brother brought home a copy of "Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik".  I was 11 years old, and I've been playing ever since.  I get offended by people that pick up a bass because it's the easiest instrument to "fake it" on.

6.  The bass line is the first part of a musical arrangement that I hear, and it's always been that way.

7.  Plucking my eyebrows makes me sneeze.

8.  Despite the fact that I have a BFA with a concentration in illustration, I've never held a steady job as an artist.  However, I can tell you whatever you need to know about chimneys, deli meats, or the best time to buy a timeshare on Cape Cod.

9.  I have been in four bands in my life.  They all stank, but not because of me.  I promise.

10.  Whenever I write a list, I usually cap it at ten entries.  It just seems like a good number.  Not too long, not too short.
