Introduction

If I have to choose one thing that I'm passionate about, then I would have to choose music. Ever since I bought my first CD 10 years ago, it has permeated me in every way I can possibly think. After that first experience, I quickly dived into my own sister's extensive music collection to catch up on all I've been missing out on.

It continues to evolve and become more complex as the world becomes more complex. This power is so attractive to become a part of, and participate in it as well. What can I say, I'm a musician. You become your passions, like lawyers, doctors, and actors. So that's what I've become. I've fallen into music so much, that its who and what I am. That, is what I call passion. ...read more.
