See...that's what I'm talking about. Good on Apple for doing this. I'll just have to wait in the dark for a while before Android pushes one out. Darn it!

Story
Tagline
Music is the breath of life - it is my desire to spread my passion for music to the next generation - whether as an educator or arts administrator.
Introduction
Depending on the day of the week and the hour of the day, I am engaged in many activities. My primary job is as an IT consultant in the mortgage industry. My passion work is as the House Manager for the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra and as the President of Opera Jacksonville.
