I love spending time with animals, and the fact that I often get to do it outside while getting exercise is a bonus.
When I was young I often had hamsters, snakes or turtles, along with the occasional goldfish. Growing up my parents had a couple of cats and Shih Tzus, which is why I often fall for small dogs. I now have a lab/border collie mix named Chauncy Black, he’s the coolest, just turned 14 and still loves to hike! I also have two cats named Phoenix and Teddy
For the last 25 years I’ve been playing drums in bands, many different genres, but often rock. I also enjoy playing the saxophone, and even sang in a band.
I also love photography, especially nature, animals and live bands. I was once the photo editor of a music magazine.
I love being outdoors, especially if there’s camping or kayaking involved. I also love sports and have a fairly ridiculous sports memorabilia collection.
Sometimes I probably leave people with the impression “he didn’t really talk to me, but he sure enjoyed talking to my dog”.
It means a happy animal, and a happy human.
