I was born in 1967 and grew up in a small town. In grade school, I used to imagine that I was from another planet. In high school, my fascination with experimental music began when I first heard a recording of Karlheinz Stockhausen's "Hymnen," and my love of philosophy was born around the same time, when the "Republic" and John Cage's book "Silence" both fell into my hands. My academic background is in classical languages and Western philosophy, but I've always been drawn to more outré subjects as well. I'm searching for light, including special effects.
