Born and raised in the little town of Rice Lake, WI, I didn't have much of a music scene to influence me while I was growing up. My parents got me a cheap little FirstAct from Walmart around the age of 12 and it went untouched. I went through the beginning of high school with aspirations of nothing close to ever playing music, but sometime in my late freshman year I received an Esteban and slowly started teaching myself to play. Wrote my first song the following summer on a limb, thinking it would be no good until I played it for a few friends and they were impressed, which in turn impressed me. So for the next few years I would continue to play and improve myself from the awkward untalented nerd I used to be. Music is now my life and I'm always looking for new inspiration to write a new tune to keep me occupied in days to come.
