Singer | Songwriter | Producer
Welcome to my little jump off point on the interwebs. I’m currently residing in the Bay Area, CA., working on new music, a new video podcast, music production, and taking some time to focus on the ever important aspects of mental health. Sometimes it is best to be still, reflect, and rebuild.
While you’re here, please feel free to connect with me in any of the ways you see fit, and for any inquiries regarding my song shop, booking a show, or playing/officiating/MCing/DJing your wedding, please send me an email using the link at the bottom of the page.
Words worth sharing:
A few friends and I have launched a podcast called Cocktail Hour Cinema. Each week we review a movie or tv show while sipping on a craft cocktail we created specifically to pair with the weeks topic; and each week we teach you how to make it so you can enjoy it along with us. This concept started as a joke amongst friends and grew into a way for us to have a laugh with each other and connect. We didn’t realize when we started it how badly we all needed a way to make each other giggle while also pouring some creative energy into a collective vision. 14 episodes in, we finally feel like we’ve worked out (some) of the kinks… and though this will always be for us, we feel ready for other people to (hopefully) enjoy it with us.
“I don’t feel like I ever really chose to be in the music industry. I feel like it kind of chose me. I played trombone in band class until I was 16 years old, then I picked up a guitar. At the same time, a good friend of mine also picked up a guitar, another friend picked up drums, and we formed a band.”
Inspiration is different for everyone. What creates passion and curiosity in one person may seem boring to another. Finding inspiration when writing a song can be especially difficult if the emotion isn’t strong enough. Most musicians write from a place of empathy. By caring deeply about other people, audience members are more likely to connect to the song in addition to the musician. Personal ideas and relationships are often the first to be written down.
