7 things about me:

1. I've been a vegan for 4 years and a vegetarian for 12 years. I became a vegan for health, spiritual, and animal rights reasons.

2. I love most kinds of music and learning about new musicians and bands. But I am mostly a rock n' roller and prefer most rock music and it's sub-genres. As well I prefer alternative anything, experimental/avant-garde, neo-classical, folk, punk rock/horror-punk/psychobilly/cowpunk/rockabilly/garage rock, southern rock/bluegrass/country rock, doom/folk/pagan/epic/Celtic/folk/Gothic, industrial/nu/ progressive, symphonic, heavy/viking/neo-classical metal, death blues/cemetery western/southern Gothic, classical, Celtic, blues, jazz, ethereal, electronic/house/industrial/dance, Gothic, dark and new wave, big band, soul, post-punk/post-rock/post-grunge, and indie/baroque/60's pop/twee. My top four favorite bands are: Green Day (Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt are vegetarians and have designed vegan shoes), Sleater-Kinney, Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Nick Zinner is a vegan and Brian Chase is a vegetarian), and Black Sabbath (Geezer Butler and Bill Ward are vegans). My top four favorite solo musicians are: Alela Diane, Regina Spektor, Loreena McKennitt, and Scout Niblett. My top four favorite classical composers are: Yann Tiersen, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, and Ludwig van Beethoven. Check out Last.fm and Pandora to listen radios of above genres and artists.

3. I am part Cape Verdean (Africa), Venezuelan (South America), Afro-Trinidadian and Tobagonian (Caribbean Island in South America, French (Europe), and Blackfoot Indian (North America). For recipes from my culture go here.

4. I love all kinds of art especially poetry, photography, interior design, and tattoos.

5. I was born in Houston, Texas U.S.A.

6. I am 25 years old and a Scorpio.

7. I love guitars and play a little bit of guitar, piano, drums, and harmonica. I want learn to play the saxophone, cello, and violin. I would love to get a Epiphone Les Paul Special-II, Epiphone Les Paul Custom, Ibanez AEL2012E 12 String Acoustic Electric Guitar Transparent Black Sunburst, Ibanez AK80 and Ibanez AG95 one day.
