My name is Sean. I like to make music, and have been doing so literally longer than I can remember. My primary instrument is guitar, which I’ve been playing since around 1988, but I can usually find my way around anything that isn’t a wind instrument.
I’m a child of the 1980s, and grew up loving video games, especially JRPGs. I still enjoy them even as I have children of my own now. I also enjoy Doctor Who, Star Wars (and Trek), Red Dwarf, Black Books, Tolkein, Robert Asprin, Douglas Adams, Anne Rice, and Charlaine Harris.
My favorite Disney characters are Stitch and Mufasa. I love goofy, fun anime like Tenchi Muyo and Trigun, but I don’t get into more serious stuff like Vampire Hunter D or Berserk. Fullmetal Alchemist walks the line between serious and hilarious perfectly.
I like all types of music, including rap and country. Except 1990s country. Let’s just all agree that if the only things anyone remembers about country music in that decade are Garth Brooks and Billy Ray Cyrus, it’s better if we just don’t poke at whatever it is that we’ve blocked out. But aside from that, I’m cool with basically everything else, from baby lullabies to black metal, especially if there are guitars involved.
I grew up and still live near Saint Louis, MO over on the IL side of the Mississippi. I never open with “I’m from Illinois” because I could get to Arkansas almost as fast as I could get to Chicago. Growing up here has made me jaded, and I chuckle every time I travel and people show me a “river.”
I’m done writing about myself now. If you want to know more, and ask me things over on the “contact” page, I’ll probably answer.
