I dedicated the tutorials category of this website to music creation and other digital art like photos, video and text.

My Experience

I’ve been playing music since I was seven years old and making movies on my mom’s camcorder from when I was 12.  In high school, I took a photography class.  My photo teacher seemed to like my work so much that he helped me complete my final assignment although I was technically suspended from school.  I’ve also spent tons of time writing journals, blog posts, songs and poems.

I’ve done my best to be consistent in most of the creative areas that I practice.  Given that I’ve started these arts so long ago, there’s a lot of information to share!  I plan to deliver this wealth of knowledge in my trademark infotainment style.  That means I emphasize humor and the overall experience of learning.
