About Me Well,I grew up a loner,but turned into a gregarious person.Have been burnt by a number of people,and trust sometimes is an issue with me,but honestly,I love people and am very open and accommodating.
Music is a tremendously large part of who I am.I was gifted with an ear and have been playing the piano and keyboards since I was 7 years old.I've been playing professionally since I was 17.As the years progressed,I became more and more proficient at songwriting and singing in addition to the keys,arranging,percussion,and learning to play the guitar.
I'm very open with expression and emotion.Being a human-being,you have emotions.Most guys have been brought up to be "closed" or to keep their emotions hidden.I've never been that way.My heart is always on my sleeve.In my opinion,having the strength to be yourself,being able to show your weaknesses,showing your heart & your feelings is the only way to truly be yourself and if you want to ask,"What makes a man truly a man?",I would have to say that that is it! If you don't have the strength to be yourself,you're not a "man" at all.
Well,even though I have been royally hurt by past relationships,I suppose even after all of the heartbreak and "The Break-up" in '99-2000,I still am a hopeless,er...(ahem),I mean,hopeful romantic.At this point I only dream.
Yeah...I'm also a dreamer.Very idealistic,very hopeful that the world could be a better place than what it is if only people learned to stop pointing fingers,be themselves, and simply learn one of the greatest yet simplest teachings- "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.".Not really all that difficult.
Whew...I'm getting wordy here! Well,I love nature,rain,balmy full- mooned nights,writing (poetry,songs and commentary),am an amatuer Egyptologist,am endlessly curious and love to explore new terrain.I love to share who I am and also what others are...their cultures,talents, feelings,desires.And lastly,when I meet anyone with compassion,anyone with ardent care or conviction of the heart,it turns me on more than I can say!

Wild Fact About Me I lived on the streets 5 times in my life.A vivid,seven part,prophetic dream I had back in 1987.My strange connection with the number 11,primarily 11:11 or 11/11.Ask me about "The Dream" and 11 !
My Philosophy I tasted of tremendous joys and of the lowest lows you can imagine.I've rubbed elbows with the rich and the famous and with the impoverished.And despite any pain or turmoil,I am still open to others and to hope.If you haven't tasted of most if not all facets of life,or haven't opened yourself to all peoples,free of bigotry and hatred,your ability to live and actually know life is stunted.Seeing both sides of the fence or all facets of life gives you a powerful perspective and makes you a unique person of vision.
What Gives Me Hope Just within the last 5 years I have met the warmest and most genuine people and I feel very blessed to call them friends.If I've met these "treasures" here locally,there must be others out there that are just as wise,just as real,just as caring.I imagine there are many "lights" out there in the darkness.And "The Dream" continues...
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Finding a way to give every single person on the planet a home and passing a law making True Love mandatory.
