The Childhood

In 1994, my brother, my sister and I formed a Scottish rock 'n roll band. We named ourselves The Scotch Tapes and our first single, 'Pink Slip' became a household hit with our friends, but it was a little too much for Asian parents to handle at the time. We disbanded in 5th grade. I played the broom guitar.

Now a retired musician, I am a conjurer of ideas. A designer of things. An aspiring word smith-er. An overseer of art. A former log chopper. A former sweat shop seamster. A lover of Tyrian Purple. A taster of cheeses. A chaser of destiny. An overall, okay guy.
