Well, it's one louder, isn't it?

I love playing and recording music. I play the guitar and bass mainly, though I dabble on keyboards and drums. I run a recording studio here in Jersey. For a while I worked in NYC as a jingle engineer where I learned my recording chops. I'm in the process of recording a CD. My music is mainly mopey songwriter crap. I also have a day job in electronic publishing that helps keep the lights on and a roof over my head. Maybe someday I'll take the plunge and pursue music full-time. I live about 15 miles from New York city with my girlfriend Allison cookieguggelman. She's great, she's from Seattle and she came to live me. The reason I'm starting a journal is because my memory is bad (despite what crankyisgood says) and I want to write down all the funny things that happen to me and my friends.
