Terrell Kent Holmes

Loves jazz, astronomy, and the Yankees.

About Me

I was born and raised in New York City. Stargazed from the bathroom window of my 13th floor apartment with neither telescope nor binoculars when I was a kid. Had my jazz epiphany toward the end my of sophomore year in college when I heard "Kind of Blue" and "A Love Supreme" for the first time. Work as a Budget Analyst pays the bills. I'm a member of the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York, for which I occasionally write book reviews and other articles. I have visited twenty-two of the current major league ballparks and hope to see all thirty before the end of the decade.
