This is a music blog!

I suppose you want to know about me

Listen, we are all here because we are fans of music, right? I mean, how else would you end up on this page? Well, besides worrying about questionable pizza toppings...

I find that I was very fortunate to grow up in an environment that inspired an exploratory and eclectic taste. I can remember drives in my dad's Ford Focus (blue, hatchback) while listening to the Gorrilaz, Depeche Mode, Fatboy Slim and The Prodigy. My mom, on the other hand, was a near-expert in gay icons (Whitney, Madonna).

Neither of my parents were musicians, but I realized early in my life that they always wished they would've been. To ensure that neither my sister nor I had such regrets, they heavily encouraged learning instruments. For me, it was the piano, saxophone and synthesizer. Like any aspiring musician of this epoch, I then downloaded my first DAW in sixth grade.

Music would continue to dominate my life and I became a voracious consumer of musicological books, blogs, forums and other early-internet artifacts. I would constantly seek new music and musical experiences. 

I was (and continue to be) a pretty good musician. However, I realized that my pursuit of music wasn't in the creation of it, but rather the documentation.

I would go on to study journalism in college to better hone my skills in documenting that which I love!

So, that's what I'm doing! Thanks for reading!
