THE TLDR:

  • Grew up in KY.
  • Grew up on the internet.
  • Still here. 'Furry'. 'Queer'.
  • 'Hobbyist'.
  • Bio:

    I grew up in a small Kentucky town and my memory of my childhood is notably vague. I remember really liking Spiderman and playing my Gameboy and Gamecube. Primarily I only played Sonic the Hedgehog games, which is probably one of the earliest reasons I'm into all this furry stuff nowadays. I became entrenched in online communities (for better or for worse) from middle school to present revolving around music, cartoons, speedrunning, and as already mentioned, furry.


    I have been surrounded by music my whole life through local musical theatre, electronic music I would find online, and more family and friends I can count that made it their main careers or hobbies out of composing or performing music. I was in every school band/orchestra in middle to high school which led me to composing my own (sheet) music and learning music theory. In college I pivoted to getting an engineering degree out of financial fear.


    I've been "online" since 2010ish and "entered" the furry community in 2017 instead of lurking. It is the primary community I build my world around now and it is very important to me. Being with people aggressively accepting and vulnerably queer is something I've needed my whole life.


    While I have made some albums, I don't know if I'd label myself as a musician. While I work professionally as a software engineer and like making silly webpages, I wouldn't label myself as a "programmer" or a "web designer". I am almost always uncomfortable with prescribing (or even describing) labels about myself as well as very unconfident in my opinions. I just want to exist.


    All I know is that my name is rowan and I'm glad you are taking the time to look at my website.
