2017, I'm not sad to see you go. It's been quite the year. As I do every year, I like to reflect on the outgoing year.

Music is a big part of my life. I wish I could say it's because I play, but I have little musical talent. Instead, I love listening to music and it truly is the soundtrack to my life. I don't know what I'd do without music; it's one of the finest art forms in my opinion. With 2015 drawing to a close, I reflect on 10 albums I thoroughly enjoyed this past year.

i was really excited to find out that i made the credit roll for a video game i worked on. i worked on this game for a few years -- long before it was announced publicly. it was a labor of love, and like any creative product, was filled with highs and lows, but ultimately, i am really proud of the end product.
