I have loved music since I was a very small child. Got my first drum kit at 6, followed by a trombone at 10, and guitar at 13. I taught myself piano and music recording in the mid 90's. And following - what had then been a long standing dream - attended The Musician's Institute's guitar program at 30 years old. I have been a professional guitarist and DJ, but these days I am rediscovering the simple joy of just listening. Without music I wouldn't be the person I am today. I wouldn't have had most of the experiences I have had in life and I wouldn't know most of the people I consider close friends. I truly can't imagine what my life would be like without it.
