When did you start playing?:
I grew up in a pretty musical household, my mother played guitar & piano and my father had an excess of 800 cds and was always listening to new, exciting and weird music so I was always interested, but I started taking learning and practising seriously when I was 13.
Why did you start playing?:
Seemed like a very good method of expressing myself and engaging my overactive brain.
Describe yourself in 3 words:
Hyperactive, Analytical, Philomath
Where do you see yourself in 5 year?:
Hopefully actually publishing that vast collection of half baked and rapidly abandoned creative projects i’ve been starting in life (Screen plays, Video games, Board Games, Novels, Solo Albums etc).
What is your best trait/ worst habit:
I have a very cautious approach to knowledge and critical inquiry, I will double check and source check basically every news article I read (I’m so fun at parties). I am a constant new project juggler which results in 90% of everything never being finished.
