When it comes It’ll creep up on you Like nicotine withdrawal. You won’t even know what Is trying to overcome you You just feel like something is different about you. Your lungs breathe oxygen And you can’t handle Having just that anymore.Your fingertips are free With nothing in between them.Your lips are sealed tightly With nothing in between them.

First and foremost, I love music and writing. Since I composed my first pieces of music and poetry I've been obsessed with creative output. Music and writing are a constant puzzle I want to solve, whether it is a blog piece, recording session artists, short stories, or full length albums. I am the owner and head engineer of Groove: Music Studios. Currently, we offer professional audio mixing and mastering services. I am also the Senior Editor/Staff Writer at The Borfski Press, an independent publishing company that I co-own with my wife, Dagney.
I am currently working full time in music retail at a small business and part time as a professional musician and writer. I love working in a local shop, building customer relationship management skills, and having the opportunity to sell things I love. My expertise include audio production, live sound, music retail, writing/blogging, and publishing. I especially enjoy writing and learning about music gear, specifically vintage pedals. There's something very special and exciting about stomping a pedal's switch or flipping an amp on for the first time.
