freelance drum teacher, team building facilitator, band leader, African drum repair
Hey, I'm Ed!
Nashville, Tennessee, United States · Member since August 2012

short answer:
I am a father, teacher, drummer, band leader, community organizer, team building facilitator, sailor, lover of camp out festivals, roller skater, lover of racquet sports. I'm in great health having a great life. I do some yoga, dance often, eat pretty well, play well, tell the truth and love a lot of people…
Nashville is a great place and I am committed to helping you have a great stay in Nashville. I have six listings here but some,especially the Master Bedroom and the Front Guest Room are often unlisted for longer monthly stays. People moving to Nashville love it here and some stay on a while :)

medium answer:
I got my home in 2002 and established it as Paradise Village. I have long been interested in community, gatherings and various forms of group play.
I began working as a performing artist in my early twenties. I have done a lot of theater, clowning, singing telegrams, improv comedy, sketch comedy, stand up comedy, commercials, TV, film, drumming, dancing, performance poetry.
I discovered west African djembe drumming when traveling across Canada doing my one man show in the 90's. Most of my performance energy now goes into drumming, facilitating and teaching. I have been a lead ropes course team building facilitator for over 15 years with Adventureworks. I taught drumming at several private schools for ten years. Lotta kid fun. I've had a percussion ensemble called The Love Drums for ten years that makes people dance. And my darling son, Edison, is in a band called, The Drumbinos at his Montessori school.

I am friendly and I am interested in other cultures. I enjoy meeting new people. Love my peeps from Black Rock City. I am a good communicator so let me know what you want and we'll work it out. You'll be safe, comfy and amused here at Paradise Village. People love it. I do too. :)
