After graduating from PSU in 2001 I played in a band full-time until 2005. We played everywhere from Killington, VT to Key West, FL, and played festivals with bands like Jimmy Eat World, Reel Big Fish, Violent Femmes, and Wilco. I have a collage at GameFace Tutoring to prove it.

In December, 2009, I rejoined the music world by co-lead-singing with The Fuzzy Bunny Slippers. That lasted until August, 2010, when I realized that I can't get home at 5 a.m. and still run a business the next day.

I was 9 places away from winning a trip to the World Series of Poker in 2006. I won 2 tournament to get me to the finals, and came in 15th place out of 153 people for the trip to Vegas. It would have been sweet.
