Carlos, at ten years old, is a remarkably wily cat. He is primarily an outdoor cat, except for occasional day-long naps on the comfort of something soft and indoors. Most outdoor cats don’t survive more than a few years, probably due to encounters with predators, but he has managed to thrive outdoors living at the foot of a mountain wilderness.
I'm from Huntsville, Alabama where I work as a Software Engineer and part-time banjo instructor. My wife Miiko and I worship at Rivertree Downtown.
I've been playing various instruments since my teen years. I started mandolin and dulcimer at about age 17 and banjo at 20. I love just about all kinds of music. In terms of banjo styles, I play and teach Scruggs, melodic, clawhammer, and 2-finger styles.
I'm also very keen on theology, being a Trail Care Partner with the Land Trust of North Alabama, photography, urban planning, architecture, astronomy, ATM (amateur telescope making), birding, martial arts, and about 30 other distracting hobbies to a (mercifully) lesser extent.
