Musical taste: Mostly melodic metal, a lot of progressive whether it is metal or other kind, all its variations. I tend to enjoy specific bands, not genres. l'll listen to anything that's good, regardless of genre.

Languages: Portuguese, English, Italian, French (out of practice), Spanish and German (a little)
Personal text: My interests are mostly music, books and films/television. I do some gaming if it's GTA or the likes. Discovered recently that I also like to write articles about the music I love and the different perspectives you can look at music.

For me music was always a transcendent thing. I value the work of bands a lot and cherish the moments I enjoy while I'm listening to their music.

I'm also very cheesy and philosophical as you can see ahah

Personal text: My name is Dane, and I work as a Family Rehabilitation Specialist doing in-home family coaching with an element of wilderness therapy to it. When I am not working, a good deal of my time is focused on my various hobbies. I am the vocalist and Theremin player for band, and we're in the process of recording an album and trying to book shows for a regional tour. I've also begun writing my first graphic novel which is even more evidence that I love comic books. I'm the sort of guy who would much rather go to a convention or festival than an amusement park. Well I think that is enough of my ADD rambling for now.
