I am able to play acoustic and electric guitar, bass, some keyboard and compose music.

I bought a Toshiba Satellite laptop which was heavy, had very little RAM, and cost more than most high end laptops today.

9. What’s your biggest guilty pleasure, and why?

Late night ice cream because it’s a great way to end the day. 

Stay tuned for the next one!
