So I guess this is where I write about what makes me tick...
Music has been an essential part of my existence since I was 6, when I took my first piano lesson, got my first acoustic guitar when I was 8, electric guitar when I was 11, and drum set when I was 12. I played drums in several bands from 1998 until 2006, then got a bass and started writing lyrics for a new project that I'm currently in the process of recording a demo for in my newly set up recording studio. By currently, I mean I've been saying this for 10 years ;)
I also sing and act, I got involved with community theater in 1999 and have been in over 20 musicals since. Haven't taken the official tally, last audition I had I swore I would make a resume because I can't keep track. Have gotten to meet some really cool people over the years and play a lot of fun parts.
My other passion in life is working with electronics and designing electronic products. I've been working on a design for an electronic drum set and a few other cool music gadgets for about 10 years now off and on (much like my demo), but hope it won't be too much longer before I complete first design. I am lucky enough to be able to also embrace this passion while making a living as an electronic technician at a great company, I actually love my job!
Aside from my work and hobbies, I lead a simple life, old cheap car, small rented cottage, 40 hours a week as a skilled laborer. Not into going out and constantly blowing a bunch of money on new shiny things, I'm not a cheapskate but there are much better ways of enjoying one another's company than going broke from extravagant living.
Personality-wise, I would be lying if I said I was a social butterfly in all situations, being in public and in social settings is a very shy and awkward thing for me. First meetings I don't make a lot of eye contact and am usually very nervous, but once I'm comfortable with someone my eccentric, outgoing personality comes out and stays out. You'll find I'm one of the most loyal and compassionate friends you could ever ask for.
