I uncovered my passion for music during my first guitar lesson with my dad. From that point on, I was involved in choir, musicals, and song writing.
I followed my dream to California and graduated from college with a degree in music production. I write my lyrics and produce my songs in my home studio.
I find inspiration all around me. I try to make my music representative of myself and my generation. I love the places that most people don't give a second glance.
