I value honesty, integrity, and commitment. At this stage of life there's no time for games or false promises. I speak what's on my mind but do so with finesse and respect. I am a father, a grandfather, an uncle, a brother. My parents have both passed on and my mom just passed away this year. It is sometimes difficult to know that I can't just talk with her or see her. Music has always been a part of my life and seemed to dovetail nicely with a long technical career in engineering. Sounds inconsistent but there is a rooted connection between math and music. I am a work in progress and working to shed COVID weight. I was unable to go to the gym for several months so that had an overtly negative effect. I know it's an excuse...but there you have it. I'm working to do better now. I have five grandchildren..4 girls, 1 boy...we're a little outnumbered. My oldest is 14, my youngest is 2. My daughter decided that she needed to have some babies later in life.
