First and foremost, I am a musician; I've played and written music seriously for seven years. I will listen to any music once, but I mainly enjoy listening to and playing styles of rock, blues, jazz, ska, reggae, techno, and hip-hop (I've been rapping for about a year as well). I sing and play guitar and keyboards in a band called Sanctuary Lost, hence my username (facebook.com/sanctuarylost). I also record other bands' music semi-professionally in my local area. I am interested in psychology, neurobiology, and virology, but I'm going to school for a music production degree. I also have a first dan black belt in taekwondo/kickboxing and am interested in martial arts of all styles.
