About VanTheKraut
I'm Van...
I started as a strictly metal player but eventually branched out to play a few kinds of music. Presently, I love playing
Vintage Heavy Metal (70's and 80's)
Classic Rock (Think George Thorogood, not George Harrison)
Blues/ Blues Rock (Robert Johnson to ZZ Top)
and finally OLD Country (strictly old country, new Country is about the worst thing to happen to the genre ever.)

There is one "hobby" that I place above guitar and that is football. It's something that I was taught that if you care about it you dedicate your life to it until you can't do it anymore. It means going to the gym at 6 AM before work/school, practicing snapping during my lunch break, and swimming/running at 6 PM after work/school. All to get one step closer to my dream.

Football (American/Amerikanisch)
Tinkering with cars.
Guitar (Duh!)
UFC/MMA fights


I work 60 hours a week at two jobs. Spring/Summer: Second Nature Outdoor Solutions (Landscape laborer), Ace Hardware (Retail). Fall/Winter: St. Louis Bread. UPS (Warehouse)

My goals in life are to-
Graduate High School (Check!)
Earn a football scholarship to a University. (Walking on, so half a check)
Earn a degree in Neuropsych with an emphasis on Brain Trauma in Sports.
Buy and completely rebuild a 1984 Chevy Camaro.
Get signed to play in the Arena Football League.
Make heavy bank for a decade or so.
Once I'm too old for that I'll either go into Neuropsych.

Ask to be friends, I'm less of a Jerk when you get to know me...
