I'm a student at The University of Iowa majoring in Informatics, a branch of Computer Science that includes a liberal arts focus in addition to technical courses; I chose music of course :-) I'm am a big sports fan (Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bulls). I've been playing trumpet for about 10 years now and I'm currently learning guitar and ukulele.
My Favorite Bands
A lot of people say their musical taste is very eclectic when it isn't; I ACTUALLY listen to just about anything except for country (FAIL) and some obscure folk-y type things; However, my main musical interests include metal, rock, jazz, and electronica. Favorite bands include:
Metallica, Opeth, Soilwork, Megadeth, In Flames, Nightwish, Scar Symmetry, Lacuna Coil, Rage Against the Machine, AC/DC, Red Hot Chili Peppers, All That Remains, Shadows Fall, Bullet for My Valentine, Tool, Dream Theater, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Chicago, Reel Big Fish, Earth, Wind & Fire, Disturbed, Ozzy, Rise Against, Tenacious D, Sabbath, Dio, Aerosmith, Van Halen, etc.
