I enjoy music, programming, taking photographs, making websites and art, usually digital but getting back into sketching and painting. I collect vintage synths and make music as Electronic Sleep. I started making music with a bass guitar and a drum machine around 1996.
Got started with programming computers by making websites around 1998 for my music projects. I enjoyed it because I thought of it as a artistic medium like painting or drawing. You have a blank canvas with the web, graphics and code and you can create anything and educate yourself, this I found inspiring and fun.
