A picture of me onstage

...so who's this guy?

Well, I guess you could say I'm a closet geek, who loves to play guitar and read. My curiosity always gets the better of me. I tend to dive deep into subjects I find interesting. I'm 21 years old, pursuing an IT degree and living in Fairfax, VA.

I'm also a music freak. I love everything from indy-rock to [Traditional Jazz]. I play electric and acoustic guitar, as well as the 4 string banjo -- otherwise known as the 'Plectrum' or 'Tenor' banjo. I cheat a bit with that, though, and tune it similar to a guitar. I've been playing music for 11 years and have been a part of the [Capital Focus Jazz Band] for 3 years and counting.

... hangouts

... he said what?

I wrote a little [poem] about a run in with our Salvadorean neighber we had earlier this year. I also wrote a tutorial on installing/configuring linux on the [Sony Vaio VGN-S260]. It's linked from a number of web pages and forums for linux support on laptops.
