- Started playing alto in second grade. Played variously alto, tenor, bari and soprano through high school and college. I particularly enjoyed playing in jazz bands and pit orchestras. I', just getting back into playing after a very long layoff. Just for my personal enjoyment. But I wouldn't mind performing again, just amateur stuff would be nice.
- The tattered remains of the lovely New Jersey Shore.
- History, reading, experimenting with various setups trying to find that elusive "sound" on my horns.
- Wok in a hardware store because there aren't many history jobs out there.
