The music industry as we know it now officially a wasteland. All good music comes from an organically grown fan base online. This is the way it’s supposed to be.

I visualize problems when I solve them. I see the big picture. I see words when I spell them. I love the processes of building. I enjoy working with my hands. I like to see how things tick. I analyze music by the melody, not the lyrics. I can read a faces very well. I’m a salesman. I love to engage people. I convey concepts effectively because of my natural ability to get the global perspective. I’m an artist first and a mathematician last. I enjoy the writing and reading. I embrace technology. I love efficiency. I embrace learning and I love tools.
