I have lived in Orange County all my life, but have a great fondness for Los Angeles. Between the two counties, there's just so much to explore: art galleries, museums, hiking trails, unique places to eat, and venues to check out new music. But don't get me wrong, I can still enjoy an evening at home. As long as I'm with good company, I'm usually game for whatever.
Music is a huge passion of mine. I enjoy going to concerts and discovering new music. I also play guitar, which lends itself to playing in bands once in awhile. Writing music and playing live is very exhilarating and cathartic, and I wish I could do it more often.
