I LOVE TO LISTEN TO MUSIC. I LOVE TO MAKE MUSIC. I LOVE TO TRAVEL. I AM BLESSED TO BE ABLE TO DO ALL OF THESE THINGS, USUALLY AT THE SAME TIME. BORN AND RAISED IN MICHIGAN AND HAVING SPENT SOME TIME LIVING IN NEW YORK CITY AND PORTLAND, OR, MY WIFE AND I HAVE MOST RECENTLY SET UP LIFE IN ATLANTA, GA.

MY LIFE HAS BEEN FILLED WITH WARM PEOPLE. BEGINNING WITH MY FAMILY AND GROWING UP IN A SMALL-TOWN CHURCH, I WAS TAUGHT THE VALUE OF FAITH AND LOVE AT AN EARLY AGE. AT 15, I BEGAN WRITING AND RECORDING MUSIC WITH FRIENDS. THIS BEGAN MY LIFE AS A MUSICIAN AND PERFORMER WHICH GREW LEGS DURING COLLEGE AND HAS MATURED OVER THE PAST NUMBER OF YEARS.

MY MOST RECENT AREA OF INTEREST HAS BEEN IN REPRESENTING HUMANITARIAN CAUSES WHILE ON THE ROAD. THE ORGANIZATION I HAVE SUPPORTED THE LONGEST IS BLOOD:WATER MISSION AND THEIR EFFORTS TO PROVIDE CLEAN WATER TO COMMUNITIES IN AFRICA. LACK OF CLEAN WATER EFFECTS 1.1 BILLION PEOPLE WORLDWIDE AND ACCOUNTS FOR COUNTLESS DEATHS. MOST RECENTLY, I HAVE BECOME AWARE OF THE SLAVERY/HUMAN-TRAFFICKING INDUSTRY THAT IS EFFECTING 27 MILLION PEOPLE WORLDWIDE. I HAVE SINCE BECOME AN ADVOCATE FOR NOT FOR SALE, AN ORGANIZATION ENCOURAGING CONSCIENTIOUS CONSUMERISM AND INDEPENDENT ACTIVISM.

THE BEST THINGS IN MY LIFE ARE THINGS I HAVE LEARNED TO SHARE. LOVE, MUSIC, ART, MOVIES, COFFEE, BOOKS, CHOCOLATE, TEARS, SUNSETS, SILENCE. I ONCE HELD THEM SELFISHLY TO MYSELF. MY HOPE IS THAT MY MUSIC REFLECTS THESE VALUES AND EXPERIENCES AND HELPS GIVE WORDS TO EMOTIONS WE ALL EXPERIENCE.
