Interests

Music

I've been around music my whole life. I am a multi-instrumentalist, but my favorite is the guitar, which I've played since I was 14. I've been involved with various projects over the years, some as briefly as a couple of days while others have been around for decades.

Gaming

Although I don't always have the time to play, I enjoy a variety of video games, from open-world adventure to 4x strategy. I also like board games and have invented a few myself!
