Before I found myself dabbling in the world of visual design, I was tinkering with musical instruments. Beginning with viola in 4th grade, I soon moved on to bassoon and although I wasn't extremely passionate about it, I never forgot it. Eventually grandma bought me my first bass guitar at age 14 and after many years of keen listening, I taught myself many instruments and home recording techniques. I've included some for your personal enjoyment.

Like visual design trends, my goals in music and stylistic approach change with time. First, I experimented with "getting a good sound" on whatever instruments I was working with. Next, it was getting the "biggest" sound which often included many layers of instruments. Now, when I get around to it, I try and exercise restraint with the amount of layers (or tracks) I use and focus on more interesting playing.
The sound samples below span around 15 years and vary in quality but regardless, I hope you enjoy!
