Occupation(s): information manager, webmaster
Other musical activities: Pianist, composer, arranger, and keyboard player, studio musician.
Hobbies / obsessions: making music, recording music, collecting music, hunting for new music, designing & maintaining a database system for my music, multi media design (to combine with music). But I also like to walk or cycle (with music on my ears), and enjoy nature (by turning the volume of my walkman down for a while...).
Other comments: I wish I'd have the possibility to absorb auditive information twice as fast, so that I only needed half the time to digest all this nice music that surrounds me. Another option might be the capability to interpret information separately that comes whether through the left or the right ear.
