Who AM I?

Recently @tmonhollon tweeted: What Defines You

Check it out, it is a good read and will make you think.

It got me thinking. Thinking specifically about a couple of DM messages I
sent to another Twitter follower. He had sent me a DM and asked if I was a
musician. This made perfect sense, as he is in the business of music.

The two melded into one thought in my mind.

I am first and foremost a musician and artist.
Every other part of my life, both personal and professional
springs from this starting point.

I have been making music longer than I have been doing any other conscious act.

I responded to him:
Yes, I am. In fact I have been making music longer than anything else. Vocalist, guitarist. Mostly Celtic, Country and Gospel these days.

And I was a 23 year Roster Artist w) the Kansas City Lyric Opera amongst other music theater credits... (Tenor) ;-)

So, in a way, you could say...

I'm Jean ValJean ;-)
