I started studying classical piano, jazz, music composition, and music theory at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati from the ages of 5-15.  At 16, I was living in Belgium and studied at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel in Brussels, Belgium.

At the age of 12, I got my first synthesizer (still have it) and have been fascinated by electronic music ever since.  In the years since, I learned to play the guitar, electric guitar, clarinet, flute, and a smattering of other instruments to try to recreate their performance characteristics while using synthesizers to recreate their sound.
