Musician — I’m a lifelong musician who plays guitar, piano and trombone, builds my own analog synthesizers, operates a home studio, and generally immerses myself in all things music.
Blogger/Writer — I’ve written hundreds of articles about artists, live events, gear, and industry trends, which gives me unique insight on the workings of the music industry.
