I’ve been fascinated by music & sound since a young age, when I’d spend hours listening to my dad’s albums through headphones. After we got our first boombox with a microphone, I created experimental sounds with objects ranging from a metal slinky to coffee cans. Borrowing a cousin’s boombox, I would create “ping-ponged” multitrack recordings with two machines. I’d often seek opportunities to play with the PA system at school, so that I could beatbox and hear the bass resonate. Whenever we visited a department store, I’d spend the entire time in the electronics section tinkering with the keyboards.
As a teenager, I often spent whole weekends composing & recording, starting with a small Casio keyboard & 4-track recorder. I’ve sometimes pushed music aside for career & financial reasons, but am happiest when I regularly make time for music . As technology has evolved to computer-based digital audio workstations, I remain amazed by how much capabilities have grown over just a few decades. It's an exciting time to be making music. Thank you for listening!
