I ran across this site in a google search and decided to sign up; looks like a pretty cool and informative community.
As for me, I used to mess with cubase as a hobby for 10 years before going to a music production school to turn my hobby into my profession. Since then I've been doing sound design, sound editing, sound engineering and music production for film, tv and video games, but what I really love to do is music production and working with artists and hopefully I will be doing much more of that in the future!
I'm originally from Holland and immigrated to the US about 4 years ago, currently residing in the SF Bay Area. Looking forward to engaging in this forum and hearing all your music!
