If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I've been writing since I started writing poetry and participating in creative writing when I was a kid, I use to always have drum beats, guitar tracks, and melodies playing in my head I just never knew how to create them. I always loved to sing, I was always in choir, I even participated in plays and dance routines. Then I started playing guitar around 12yo finally putting songs together with my poetry and old lyrics. I started playing guitar with other people in high school and was in a heavy metal band, again when I was 21 I was in an 80's pop group Official Version doing guitar, keys, and vocals. Foxchildren, now my close friend going on 3 years, who I've helped master and edit his music, had the priveledge of doing a vocal duet on a track, and helped make music videos for... I'm pretty much his number one fan
