The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about learning. I want to know everything I could possibly know. I will never turn down an opportunity to learn. I love sports, mainly baseball, because they're a way to learn, a reference, a collection of data. I'm very passionate about music, both playing and listening. I'm passionate about being the best person I can be, and constant self-evaluation. I want to hold myself to the highest standard in everything I do, even if it isn't necessary.
I typically spend my leisure time
The perfect day would be one that included an unnecessary amount of time spent making a breakfast that would start the day off right, the viewing of a baseball game, and dinner at a place I've never eaten before. Hopefully there would be time for plain old relaxation as well. I like to get in as much golf as I can, and I play in a men's baseball league on the weekends.
The most influential person in my life has been
Creativity and intelligence come first. With those two attributes, you're able to make all other attributes fall into place. Being intellectually challenged on a regular basis is good for the mind and keeps things fresh and interesting.
The first thing people notice about me

The last book I read and enjoyed
Mo Meta Blues - Amir "Questlove" Thompson
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Friends and family. They mean more than anything.
- Opportunity, however it may present itself.
- Creativity, and the constant chance to learn something new.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Probably nothing. There's no need to give away everything about yourself five minutes into meeting someone. Seems to be a dying sentiment these days.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Energetic, Intelligent, Loyal
A little more about me
I like to think I'm a pretty well-rounded person that surprises people in a lot of different ways. I'm an old soul, but I certainly know how to have a good time. I'm probably the most sarcastic person you'll meet, and I'm always out to make people laugh, which I think I do pretty well. I'm hardly ever serious, but I know how to be when it's necessary. Everyone will tell you they love music, and I'm no exception. I studied music theory throughout school, and I've played at least 8 instruments at some point or another. These days, I try to take in as much music as possible, and play guitar every single day.
