My life has always been accompanied by music. I grew up listening to the radio and watching music videos on cable TV. In high school, I listened to alternative rock, gothic rock, dance, new wave, industrial, and ambient music. In college, I started listening to jazz and jambands.
I enjoy seeing live music on a regular basis. I have attended hundreds of live concerts by a diverse range of bands and musicians in venues of all sizes from bars and theaters to arenas and stadiums.
I live in Berkeley with my wife, Jeannette. I have been in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2000. I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio.
