Like the great philosopher Cookie Monster says, "Me just kind of throw stuff in bowl and mix and hope for best." Writer, drummer, engineering consultant, and university professor. I'm a "sleep is overrated" kind of person. I have friends on every continent, except for Antarctica. Just moved back home to New York after too many years away (overseas, in the South, and on the West Coast), and still getting my bearings. I play an unhealthy amount of sports, from cycling to hockey to rugby to golf and most everything in between. Vinyl, cassette, CD, mp3, or playing drums or guitar, music is an essential part of my day. Life philosophy: What would Steve McQueen do?
