Who is Xavier?

Born at a very young age, I am a man of mystery and power, whose power is exceeded only by my mystery. I am a sample size of one, not statistically significant, nor representative. That is why X is a variable.
Some know me as a multi-instrumentalist, producer, movie/TV composer and songwriter. Either way, I have a really cool day job. My favorite songwriters include Paul McCartney, Burt Bachrach, Stevie Wonder, Jimmy Webb and Tom Waits.  My childhood idol was Steve Gadd.
My life philosophy is "And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make."
I don’t like to get bogged down in the details, but the details are what are most important. I have an unhealthy fear of bridges and heights, but I am totally comfortable on stage. I am an INTJ. I will teach my brand of engineering and production to all that will learn. I like to practice hot yoga when the room is cold. I am a Gearslut, Coffee-Drinker, Meat Eater, Melody Lover.  I’m very busy and important.

Who is Ophelia?

Here's a list, in no particular order, of items you may find interesting to know about me, Ophelia.

I am terrified of cable cars.  Cats are my weakness.  I was born in Texas, but only have an accent when I drink or talk on the phone with my family.  I adore scarves.  My left knee is numb from a motorcycle accident.  Stilettos have no place on my feet, or in my home.  I own enough CDs to make a coffee table.  I studied opera performance in college for a minute.  Sweatpants are awesome.  My hair really should have its own zip code.  My eyes are blue and I'm shorter than most people think I am.  At age 7 I wanted to be a lawyer.  I think laughter is sexy.  I'm inquisitive to a fault.  Good music gives me goosebumps.  I enjoy juice.  Writing and singing songs is therapy, without the bill.  I'm awkward sometimes, and I'm okay with said awkwardness.  I drive too fast.  I love practicing yoga.  I've been accused of being "too observant."  I have the same sense of humor as a 5th grader.  I graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.  Writing music with Xavier ROCKS.


Collectively we're interested in:

finding the perfect jingle bells, exploring weird sound textures, ridding the world of flyaway cat hair, wearing cool glasses, finding THE microphone, performing Bossa Nova tunes on the Q Chord, late-night studio haunting, traveling to remote destinations, scarves that don't leave fuzzies stuck to your lip, writing writing writing songs, 4th grade humor, fun hats, big hair.
