I am a classically trained tabla player from Ohio. I lived in California for eight years teaching, learning and performing tabla. Met my wife in California and she now works for the US Forest Service in Annapolis,MD. We have lived in Oakland,Ca, Knoxville,Tn and now Annapolis. I also buy and sell antiques. My specialty is vintage fountain pens but also do Arts & Crafts period furniture and accessories, vintage jewelry and watches and much more. We love the outdoors and travel. We spend our summers in the Catskill Mountains and the Lakes Region in Maine. We love good food, music and time with friends. We are quiet people. We meditate daily and my wife does a daily Yoga practice. We are mostly vegetarian. We love kids and dogs but have neither! Our life motto is : If it needs done yesterday, do it today, if it needs done today, do it now, if it needs done now, do it!
