Music (obviously), playing instruments (keys, a little bit of mallet instruments, some guitar, saxophone, etc.), music recording & production, gaming, collecting vintage games & musical instruments.
Grew up in a medium-sized town in west central Indiana, where I still live, although I am currently commuting to work as a Chemical Engineer in Indianapolis (about an hour one-way). I try not to let my work define me, because although I do enjoy my job, music will always be something that I am extremely passionate about. In my spare time in the fall, I help teach the marching band at my high school (these competitions are a big deal in Indiana). I enjoy it enough that it keeps me coming back year after year. I occasionally work on music projects with my brother & friends, but we have yet to release anything in any sort of organized way. I am fascinated by the music recording/producing process, and hope to be somehow involved in it someday.
