If this is indeed your first go-round with me, you’re probably wondering who the heck I am. In the spirit of first-blog disclosure, here goes!
I’m Phil Traynor. I’m originally from Syracuse NY, and I live in Clearwater FL now. I’m 52 years old, married for the 2nd time (Bonnie), and father for the 1st time (Abby). My day job involves computer technology, and makes me happy; my primary avocation is music. I’m a jazz musician and composer, as well as a recording engineer. I play drums, bass, keyboard, and guitar. It’s been that way for nigh onto 40 years now. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t love music, and didn’t love playing it.
I have some ancillary hobbies, like video editing, being a Photoshop nerd, being a Christmas light wacko, and nerding out in a few fan universes; Star Trek, Harry Potter, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and its television subordinates).
