Describe Your Current Gear

My current audio gear consists of a pair of Grado SR80e's and a pair of Sony MDR 7506's a couple pairs of headphones that I absolutely love, both are very versatile and well made.

Musical Moment

A moment where music made an impact on me, was when I had the chance to see Roger Waters in 2017. It was one of the first times I feel like I had been able to feel the impact of politics within the music, and alongside this, one of the first time I had felt the weight of the government on my shoulders. When The Wall started playing, it was almost like the lyrics grabbed me and focused themselves around my life.

Favorite Bands

1. Woody Guthrie 2. Bob Dylan 3. Pete Seeger

Hi-Fi Intro

The first time I stepped in to the world that is high-end audio, was when I first purchased my Grado SR80e's, while they are not the best headphones offered by Grado the sound quality swept me off my feet, I spun my Mobile Fidelity copy of Kind of Blue by Miles Davis and it was an absolutely transcendental experience.

Audio Passion in One Sentence

I will do anything I can, to get myself as close as possible to that milky in-studio sound.
