About me

Gender MALE
Industry Technology
Occupation Programmer/Manager
Location Cape Cod, MA
I'm a public radio listener/baseball fan/movie buff whose passion is music.

I like to think of myself as politically aware, but I also love the mundane (celebrity gossip - woohoo!). I often fall asleep watching TV while doing a crossword puzzle, and as a result I have pen ink on all my bed linens and pajamas. Too much info? Maybe, but I think it says something, though I'm not sure what.

By day, I work as a computer programmer; by night, I'm a bar and club rat. I sing with one band (Chandler Travis Philharmonic) and several of its variations (Chandler Travis Philharmonette, Modern Maturity); I sell merchandise for another band (The Incredible Casuals); and I try to check out the Cape Cod music scene as often as I can haul my sorry old ass out of the house.

I also host two radio shows on Community Radio station WOMR out of Provincetown, MA: "The Omnipop Omnibus" airs alternate Sundays, 1 to 4pm and starts with a one hour Gospel Brunch followed by two hours of freeform omnipop. "Out There" airs the 2nd & 4th Wednesday of every month and is a modern jazz and experimental show.
