Music



One of my passions is playing guitar. I started when I was a junior in high school and practiced fairly regularly until I ended up in graduate school, when research and work, and more work, and family, and more work made me put it aside, except for playing once in a long while. A few years ago I decided to try to take guitar a little more seriously and have begun playing at open mikes.
