I am an avid self-taught musician. At the moment, I am currently compiling and arranging a number of songs that I have written over the years. Although not yet “finished,” some of these songs are available on my YouTube channel, albeit not publicly. Please see below for an example of my music.

  • Pacifist’s War (Demo)
  • Nothing (Demo)
