I am originally from Michigan and currently reside in Arizona.
My interest in high stereo began in college when I went to purchase my first basic stereo. DIY has been a major component of my interest in this hobby for about a decade now. Athough it was long overdue. While it was always a dream of mine to build my own gear going back to my early 20s, I didn't overcome my initial fears to do so until my early 40s. I have since built several pairs of speakers, power amps, integrated amps, phono preamps, etc. both tubed and solid state, and done way too much modding. I'm a virtual compendium on the sonics of boutique capacitors, resistors, potentiometers, etc.
My discovery of music began early in high school. I had long heard that the Beatles were considered the greatest rock band of all time. I had some familiarity with their music by then, obviously, so I began investigating their music seriously. I can confirm that they are indeed the "Shakespeare" of modern music. From there I went through other year-long phases through high school involving Led Zeppelin, Rush and Pink Floyd. My musical interests expanded once I got to college, but my foundation is in the classic rock "greats". These days my tastes are much more diverse across most genres, but I still lean heavily towards Rock and Alternative.
Professionally I am an engineer. My other hobbies include bowling, cars, watch collecting, health and fitness, and fine scale model building.
