I’m a guy full of life, caught in what feels like a vice. I’m a single 29 year old guy with the ambitions for something great, or at least a life of adventure, but the life I have boxed myself into is something much different.
When I was a kid, I used to dream of diving the Great Barrier Reef, and swimming in the coral. My occupation was going to be a marine biologist because of my love for the sea, but I ended up pursuing music instead.
I come from a small town, but I live in a big city now. I spent some time by the ocean before when I lived in Florida, but I now live in Chicago and the closest I have is Lake Michigan. I have learned how to sail, and how to captain boats and yachts. I’ve learned how to repair guitars, and how to build enterprise class IT systems… but nothing has really made me feel as at home as the sea. I have never been a guy for 9 to 5 but the life I have chosen has a mandate for that schedule. I am an around-the-clock- kind of guy. I always have been, well before I worked in the I.T. field.
I’m an intelligent guy, I know how to crack a joke, I know how to banter, and I’m very high energy around the outdoors, and most specifically around the sea. I’m not an indoors kind of guy if I can help it. I have a very spiritual side to me, and the sea and earth speak directly to that side of me.
I guess, to make a long story short, I have been a mechanic, an athlete, a teacher, an actor, a musician, a singer, a Luthier, a carpenter, a car washer, a waiter, a writer, a skier, a kayaker, a wanna-be rock star, a starving artist, a guitar player, a drummer, a bassist, a singer, an audio engineer, a farmer’s helper, a sailor, a captain, a beach bum, a good person, a bad person and lots of things in between. I am an adventurer with the spirit to prove it, and the sense of humor to help everybody laugh along the way.
This opportunity, would allow me a chance that I have wanted to be closer with the sea, as well as gain a skill that I have always wanted, and be able to teach as well. I have been known throughout my life to have the ability to decide something, and commit with everything I am in order to achieve the goal I have in my mind. In this case, the goal I seek is personal freedom, and I have decided to cross all boundaries necessary between my goal and my reality in order to achieve it.
I hope we have the chance to speak more, and I look forward to an opportunity to prove my resolve.
