I know way too many useless facts. Somehow I just pick them up out of random conversations, the same way gas station receipts collect in your cupholder. I'm also a sort of self-proclaimed renaissance man. When I find a skill I fancy having, I learn how to do it; I was tired of the selection of synthesizers that were available to me, so I made my own.
I'm fascinated by mathematics, but my first true love is music. When I was 6, my parents rented a house that had a piano in it, and I couldn't get enough of it. At 11 came a bass guitar, 13, an electric guitar, and at 14, it all changed when I got an audio interface for my computer. Since then the world of music has turned into my veritable playground.
