Former cradle Catholic turned evangelical fundie Christian turned atheist. Fortunate to make a living doing what I love, which is composing and performing music at a high level. Beliefnet has helped me come to terms with my disbelief, which should not be construed as a hatred of theists. There are some theists here, like Clyde, Horton and Artemis who I very much respect, and who have taught me without realizing it.
The music of Bill Evans, Miles Davis, Pierce Pettis and Richard Thompson, the writing of Borges and Mark Halperin, good food, good company and the love of my friends and family keeps me going.
