My music is a mixture of thoughts, memories, fears, hopes and joys, arranged in a sort of musical puzzle. One of my favorite aspects of songwriting is the way that it allows me to take all of the confusing, frustrating thoughts and emotions from inside me and turn them into a coherent whole. I hail from the town of Sheboygan, Wisconsin the surfing capital of the midwest and I like to think you can hear the surf in my sound. My music has a relaxed feel and I've done a lot of songwriting along th

Biography

I was born in Long Beach, CA in 1990 and moved to Sheboygan, WI when I was 5. I love music and have been singing since I can remember I started piano lessons when i was 8 and wrote my first song when I was 9 it was called "The Smiling Song". The words went 'A smile makes me feel real happy, a smile makes me feel real good, I just keep smiling all day long, I just keep smiling all day long'. Songwriting fell to the wayside and I picked it up again my junior year of highschool when I wrote a song for my speech class called "Debate". This was the first song I wrote on guitar. My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in January 2006 and passed away that July. The effects of the music i provided for her while she was sick inspired me to go to college for music therapy. For the past 4 years I have attended Wartburg College and will be graduating in May 2013 with my bachelors of music in music therapy. In October 2013 I will be interning with the music therapy team at University Hospitals in Cleveland, OH. Throughout college I have continued to write music and I have put together two CDs for family and friends and am working on number 3. :) I hope to perform in Sheboygan and the surrounding area this summer.
