||I grew up in the freshly painted suburbs of St.
Louis, Missouri where I drove a Big Wheel and occasionally tee-peed my neighbors. In first grade, I was kissed on the cheek by Lisa Kirchoff and
have been disastrously drawn to the female ever since. I spent ten years
of my life making pizza and even went to college before realizing that there
were musicians dying every day- someone had to take their place.
I will not give up on the idea that life can be as adventurous as an
Indiana Jones movie, and though I wish I was an astronaut, I believe that we
can be the first band in space. I know it would require some training, but
we're in pretty good shape.
||Filtered through suburban anonymity. Late-bloomer/ripened. Past master at
pessimism. Excessive tooth decay- enchanted by gelatinous candies. Tepid
love for caffeine. Wardrobe: glasses and headphones. Visuals: furry dogs,
women's legs. Attempting less than perfect personal canonization.
Pleasant disposition- occasional cathartic destruction. Fear of terra cotta
and dry hands. Loathe self-confidence. Sentimental.
||I'm what most people would consider to be an "ugly sleeper"...my mouth is
always open, my eyes are never completely shut, and I snore so loud that
witnesses often fear I might one day swallow my own face. I drool. I never
know where my keys are. Most common place to recover them--hanging in the
lock outside the front door. Twice I've pulled away from a gas station
before disengaging the pump from my tank--thank God those hoses are
break-away. I squeeze the toothpaste from the top of the tube first. Both
of my credit cards are currently residing in bars I've been to recently,
waiting to be closed out. I never lift the seat before taking a leak. I'm
the one who put the empty box of cereal back in the pantry. I once
encountered a shortage of toilet paper during an emergency situation--the
only available resource I had to call on was some coffee filters. I am the
esteemed drummer for Colony.
||I grew up in Kansas City, Missouri and have played in bands since the age
Nickname in college: "Strange". Went through a phase where I wore all
black for months straight. Got a Masters in Neuroscience, because I
think electricity in our body is cool. Metal and glass fascinate me.
Amplifiers can be furniture. Sunday on the couch!
I try to fight it, but I constantly fly by the seat of my pants. When I
am really busy, I make sure that I am busy smelling the roses. I
believe I am an informed optimist. When I
play a show, I forget you are there. Jack-of-all-trades, master of
