music is life, music is breath, music is us

One Lovely Blog

I’ve been receiving a whirlwind of praise for this blog which is really encouraging. I just wanted to stimulate discussion of music and present my ideas, I really had no idea what this would turn into. I was just nominated by Nizy over at Nizy’s Life Compendium for the One Lovely Blog Award (link

So some guidelines go with this award, here goes.

The rules for this award are:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog
  • List seven random things about yourself
  • Nominate fifteen other  awesome bloggers

Seven  random things  about  me:

  • I usually write music late at night, for whatever reason that is when neurons are firing for me.
  • I would love to compose for video games someday, chalk it up to me being in my early twenties.
  • If I was not involved with music I would most likely do something with politics or journalism.
  • I speak 4 languages, two fluently (English, my native language, and Spanish. I also speak Japanese and Tsalagi).
  • I’m a huge human rights and environmental rights activist, and would defend Amnesty International and Greenpeace ’til I was blue in the face.
  • I am 100 percent self-taught as a composer and guitarist, yet I got into UCLA, so I must have taught myself right :P.
  • I prefer cold weather, so sometimes it is really inconvenient to be a natural born Californian (like right now as I’m writing this it is wicked hot in LA, sigh.)

One Lovely Blog Award goes to:

Wish I could choose more, you guys are all awesome.

Much love,
