About Me

So who am i?

No matter where you go…there you are. It’s all in the reflexes. Nuke it from orbit…it’s the only way to be sure.

A Family Guy

Not just a fan of the show, but a husband, and father of two boys. My wife is convinced our eldest is actually my clone. Nyahahahaha.

A Musician

Seven years of piano and two of ukulele as a child helped me blossom into tuba-playing adult. I’m currently on hiatus, but normally perform with a local wind ensemble throughout the year. I love movie soundtracks, and some of my favorite composers/ensembles include:

  • Aaron Copeland
  • Alan Silvestri
