I have released two recordings, though only one for sale. In 2005 I released a three song untitled EP. Then in late spring of 2006, I released a full length live album under the title "Give Me a Reason", which I am currently promoting on tour, as well as distributing to venues and various radio stations in the region. I have been featured on 98.9 "The Buzz"'s morning show as a hot new local artist.



My music is original. I draw on influences like James Taylor, Paul Simon, John Mayer, and Eric Clapton to teach myself to play guitar. After four years of learning the guitar on my own, I began taking formal lessons as a student at Houghton College and Houghton's Greatbach School of Music, where I studied both business and music.

I spend countless hours daily, and have for the past several years, crafting music and lyric, trying to achieve what I feel are artistic and creative new songs. My influences have taught me to be a perfectionist both in writing and in performing. I listen to every genre of music I can find, whether or not I like it initially, trying to find different aspects of each that are interesting, ingenius, and pleasing to the ear.

I am a big proponent of being overprepared for shows, rather than underprepared. I am also of the mindset that people come to a show primarily for the music, so while I speak briefly from time to time about certain songs or things I think might interest the crowd or get a laugh here and there, I primarily focus on putting on a great musical performance. I use dynamics both vocally and instrumentally, as well as a very practiced and studied guitar ability to catch listeners and onlookers attention. I have sang in men's choir at college, with the aim of improving my vocal range and technique, and this has been successful as well.

I am always very aware of the audience I am playing for, and as a business major with a concentration in marketing, I am sensitive to their thoughts and desires at a show, or listening to a CD. I am a music fan myself, but I try to put myself into the listener's shoes, to get a better perspective from the other side of the stage.
