Hey! I'm Ben. Been in Denver a little over a year, with a bunch of Great Lakes states before that. Born and raised in Michigan. Traveled a very scenic road until I finally crash-landed in Colorado. Now I work for a tiny pharmaceutical company that makes a brilliant new therapy for Alzheimer's disease. I love what I do. * * * I play a lot of instruments, and I add more to my resume whenever I can. My favorite thing to do - the most fun I know how to have - is to make music with my friends. * * * I've seen Phish 49 times since June 2009. I love ALL music. It's where I spend the vast majority of my money and free time. * * * I'd love to have a co-adventurer, co-planner, and co-pilot. Somebody who can't imagine a life without art, and somebody who knows how to bust it on the dance floor. Let's go find some trouble to get into!
The band/artist I have seen the most live has been Phish for over 4 years.
3 of my other top bands/artists I have seen the most live are Widespread Panic, Mike Doughty, and Weird Al!
On my night off you could probably find me pregaming, grooving at a show, and/or postgaming.
One of my favorite shows was My Morning Jacket - 5 hours in a lightning storm beginning at midnight, Bonnaroo 2008
A fun show memory is 10 Red Rocks concerts this summer... 5 of them in the pouring rain.
My favorite venue is The GORGE!
My astrological sign is Libra and that gives me the right to see all sides of an issue.
If you like me, you'd better like spontaneous singing and deep conversation.
If I could play any instrument it would be the baritone sax (SEXIEST instrument, period).
Two things that are important to have in my life are music everywhere and spontanaiety.
I would love to learn how to parasail.
The quickest way to my heart is teaching me something I didn't know, and the quickest way to my bed is looking me in the eyes and telling me the truth.
If im not out seeing live music I am usually travel, travel, travel... A little less often now since I adopted a rescue cat.
A song that usually gets stuck in my head is Dancing In The Moonlight by King Harvest (dat bass!)
If i could choose anything off the dinner menu it would be grilled pineapple garnishing... anything.
