I am an artist from Denver, Colorado. I greatly enjoy the city of Denver, and grew up in the music scene here. I began playing music at a young age. The piano appealed to me in grade school and I played it avidly. I then progressed to guitar and vocals. I've been writing my own music since high school, and have many live performances under my belt. I've played at Casselman's Bar and Venue, the Gothic Theatre, and a few other venues in town. One of the highlights of my playing career was when I performed “Freebird” live with some friends in my freshman year of high school.

The live show is one of the most powerful things one can experience if it’s done right and I can do it right. I love to play live.

My influences include the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Big Star, and Jack White. I like these artists because they each do something of their own. Each of these artists has a unique style, unique melodies, and unique arrangements. I strive to do the same myself, creating an arrangement that sounds like nothing else in the world.
