I was raised in South Africa before the booming 90's drew my family out of that deteriorating place and into the dribbly, wet arms of the Northwest. We officially arrived in the promise land during 2001 (so, really, we had missed the boat). I had been an avid musician since the age of 8 and continued to explore different sounds after arriving in the US, until a break from that medium occurred at 18 (I have since returned to music). Writing has been a long time passion of mine and I continue to beat myself up over silly little nuiances and obscurity.
I'm not going to say that I'm a caring, thoughtful and warm individual because, face it, 90% of the people that feel the need to say that are probably lying. I'm not really sure what I should be saying, since a shotgun summary feels kinda crass. I suppose I'm the sort of person that says crass, without sticking their nose in the air (which is a pretty good character accomplishment).
