As much as I would like to boast about which band was seen in concert in 1972, or where I was working in 1987, I simply cannot. Born near the turn of the millennium, am still in the early stages of life. Therefore my bio will be relatively short compared to other writers that have lived much longer lives.
Am currently a student finishing up my undergraduate studies at a local college and will begin to study cybersecurity at the University of Central Florida in the fall of 2020. I found my way into the audio world at age 13 after coming across a YouTube video showcasing Avantgarde Uno Nano loudspeakers. Never seeing anything like it! And thus became curious and began looking into the world of audio. I had always loved music ever since a small child, and I couldn't imagine that there was a better way to experience music.
At first was perfectly content with listening to music through my Apple earbuds up until that point. I was longing for a better way to experience music. This was the start of my audiophile journey. Thus started off by asking for a pair of Audio Technica headphones for Christmas. While they made a much better experience than the stock Apple earbuds, they still left much to be desired. Less than a year later I transferred from a curious audiophile to a serious audiophile after stopping by a local dealer and listening to a proper system for the first time. It was an experience that blew my mind!
This is where my audiophile journey truly began for me. Started to lurk the forums, read reviews and articles on audiophile topics to gain all the knowledge I could. This is something I continue to do on a daily basis.
My system started out small and on the budget side of the price spectrum but as time went on I slowly upgraded and evolved my system into what it is today. I frequently host listening parties at my home where I invite a dozen or so friends the same age as me over to listen and share the experience with. Every single person experienced the same experience I had when first listening to a proper system. Many of them are now interested in audio and some have started building systems of their own.
A goal of mine is to introduce more youth to the audiophile world and to prove that this isn't just a hobby for older men but one for all.
