Music was critical to my upbringing, and I've been voraciously exploring music for about a quarter century. I was never much of a musician myself, and felt my role was meant to be a seeker and sharer. Mixtapes as a teenager gave way to mix CDs in college. In 2004 I made a 10-disc themed mix physical box-set of post-punk from 1981, and ended up distributing several hundred copies (for free) around the world, all to get people to hear music they'd love and buy it to support the artists and labels. In 2008, I started the Musicophilia blog (http://musicophilia.wordpress.com) to make and share carefully (ok, obsessively) crafted mixes. I hope you'll enjoy!
