Born in the bay area, I've migrated slowly eastward via Durango, CO and ended up in DC. I got interested in mandolin in college at UC Santa Cruz. I wanted to play something different, and ended up taking lessons for a while and teaching myself. I haven't played for years and have just picked it up again, this time hopefully for good. It's my antidote to everything stressful in grown up life.
Eating, drinking, local food, anything outdoorsey, music and tech geekery.
