Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
First, I pursued a degree in music.
Then I realized that a degree in music would only allow me to teach.
So I took a job in the computer industry to pay the bills.
That's where I learned about business, about communication, and about how money works.
Then I put my computer skills to use in creating music.
And so I found a way to combine all my talents and skills together to do what I love.
