Please​ ​excuse​ ​the​ ​seemingly​ ​infantile​ ​writing​ ​style​ ​of​ ​this​ ​bio,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​intentional.​ ​The​ ​purpose​ ​of​ ​it is​ ​to​ ​give​ ​some​ ​specific​ ​information​ ​about​ ​myself​ ​and​ ​I​ ​have​ ​no​ ​interest​ ​in​ ​following​ ​archaic grammar​ ​rules,​ ​particularly​ ​the​ ​idea​ ​that​ ​it​ ​should​ ​be​ ​in​ ​third​ ​person.​ ​I​ ​am​ ​writing​ ​it​ ​and​ ​it​ ​is about​ ​me,​ ​therefore​ ​there​ ​will​ ​be​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​“I’s,”​ ​I​ ​do​ ​not​ ​apologize​ ​for​ ​that​ ​and​ ​that​ ​alone​ ​I​ ​hope will​ ​give​ ​a​ ​useful​ ​clue​ ​to​ ​part​ ​of​ ​my​ ​nature.​ ​I​ ​was​ ​born​ ​in​ ​New​ ​Orleans​ ​and​ ​I​ ​love​ ​it​ ​here.​ ​My formal​ ​education​ ​has​ ​always​ ​been​ ​in​ ​public​ ​schools,​ ​including​ ​the​ ​universities​ ​I​ ​attended.​ ​I dabbled​ ​in​ ​more​ ​than​ ​a​ ​few​ ​studies​ ​but​ ​only​ ​managed​ ​to​ ​finish​ ​one​ ​degree​ ​program​ ​in​ ​music.​ ​It was​ ​that​ ​discipline​ ​that​ ​led​ ​me​ ​to​ ​education​ ​as​ ​most​ ​musicians​ ​will​ ​take​ ​on​ ​private​ ​students​ ​to supplement​ ​their​ ​income.​ ​My​ ​work​ ​experience​ ​is​ ​varied​ ​as​ ​well.​ ​I​ ​have​ ​loved​ ​working​ ​outside and​ ​with​ ​my​ ​hands​ ​every​ ​bit​ ​as​ ​much​ ​as​ ​jobs​ ​requiring​ ​more​ ​academic​ ​knowledge.​ ​Education has​ ​been​ ​the​ ​bulk​ ​of​ ​my​ ​work​ ​history.​ ​I​ ​love​ ​it​ ​for​ ​the​ ​challenge.​ ​I​ ​love​ ​it​ ​for​ ​the​ ​many opportunities​ ​to​ ​make​ ​a​ ​hopefully​ ​positive​ ​impact​ ​for​ ​someone.​ ​I​ ​love​ ​it​ ​for​ ​the​ ​opportunity​ ​to work​ ​with​ ​other​ ​like-minded​ ​coworkers.​ ​Finally,​ ​I​ ​love​ ​it​ ​for​ ​the​ ​gift​ ​of​ ​being​ ​able​ ​to​ ​work​ ​with beautiful,​ ​unadulterated​ ​souls,​ ​particularly​ ​like​ ​those​ ​I​ ​have​ ​found​ ​here​ ​at​ ​Chartwell.
