It's been more than 20 years since I played in Confront and recorded the first Integrity 7", but I've felt like "hardcore" has been a part of my life the whole time. I don't make it to shows very often, but still get the same rush from the music and the message. I even try to keep up with some new bands, and frequent the HC retirement community of the Livewire board. I've lived in Washington DC for ages, and teach CrossFit, a high intensity strength and conditioning program (www.crossfitdc.blogspot.com). The energy and community remind me of the old days. I even ripped off the Bad Brains cover for our CrossFit DC t-shirts.
My girlfriend and I love to travel, and usually spend a few weeks each summer in Asia. Last year I even made it back to visit Cleveland!
