I am sixteen, a junior in high school, and am an aspiring guitarist and composer. I'm very into jazz, classical, and complicated rock music, though I am open to most other forms forms of music. I've been composing since elementary school, though I have only recently become more serious about it. I have played guitar for over three years, I played violin for seven years and hope to pick it up again someday, and I have played piano on and off since elementary school and will pick it up again when I have some more time. That more or less sums up all I'm willing to say about myself online; if your wondering what my style sounds like, keep in mind that the eclectic style of Frank Zappa and Mattias IA Eklundh is a primary influence for me.
TL;DR: I play and compose music. Don't be afraid to add me as a friend as I am always looking to meet new people.
