I grew up about 25 minutes from Philadelphia Pennsylvania, in a town called Blackwood. Lived here my entire life. I am 25 years old. I am currently booking some shows.

Current show line up is Caffeine Underground in brooklyn NY and the Electric Luau, at the brighton Bar in Long Branch NJ.

I started playing music at the age of 9 and my parents got me piano lessons. I hate reading notes so I started learning my ear. I eventually went to guitar, then bass, drums, harmonica, violin, back to keyboard, and started trying to sing. So I stuck with guitar and singing.

My favorite acoustic acts would start with Bruce Springsteen, then going towards Ed Sheeran, a mix of 90s music. Towards the realm of Sister Hazel, Richard Marx, Bryan Adams. Really any song can be made into a beautiful acoustic song. And who inspires me to play would have to be my biggest support of family and fans from all over. I couldn’t do this without them.

I went to school to study film and movie production. Dropped out. But I still feel like song are very much like movies. They tell a story. And my music tells the story of my life.
