Music Preferences

Metal, electronic, classical, folk, pop, rock, rap, jazz, R&B, ambient...nearly everything. I particularly love anything with dramatic choirs!

Interests (non-headphone)

I have been in orchestras, wind ensembles, marching bands, a jazz band, metal band, etc., and have done vocals practically my entire life, piano since ~1993, and trombone and guitar since ~1996.

Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)

manual SLR camera
Pentax K1000

countless video game consoles
