About Me:

I have been into audio since I was 15 and bought my first AIWA bookshelf stereo. Upgrades ever since

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Jamming music, and raising my son.

What I do for a living:

I run a kitchen at a nursing home. IEMs work great for when in my office.

I like clean and deep bass, forward mids, and sparkly treble void of sibilance.

Being a dad, Baseball, Golf, and hanging with my smokin hot Fiancé
