Q: Why do you play music?
A: Well, I've always played music. I first started at 4 years old with both guitar and piano, and I haven't really stopped since. Most people see me as a quiet person, so I guess playing music has always been my outlet for expression.

Q: What is your favorite album of all time? And would we be able to tell by listening to your music?
A: That's tough to answer: One of my favorite albums while growing up was "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" by Bob Dylan. But more recently, "Either/Or" by Elliott Smith has been the most influential album for me. His music and songwriting have had such a heavy influence on my music. I think for anyone who is familiar with Elliott Smith, it would be almost impossible not to hear his influence in my music.

Q: Who would you have direct your music video?
A: A music video isn't something I've given much thought on, but probably my good friend Sean Mancillas. he's a killer bassist and an awesome photographer and an extremely creative individual. I'd love to give him a video camera and see what he would come up with.

Q: If you weren't a musician, you would be...
A: I guess a music teacher. Music has always been a huge part of my life. Even if I weren't an active musician, I would be involved with music one way or another.
