Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Capitol Hill, Seattle, Washington. But I've lived for the past 7 years in Salt Lake City. I also lived 2 years in different parts of western North Carolina.

How did you become interested in music?
My dad played the Oldies station in the car all the time since I was young. In terms of guitar playing, my cousin Nikki sold me her Austin electric guitar and a small Marshall amp for just $50 during the summer before my Freshman year of high school. She is partly responsible for all of this.

Why do you want to play music?
I want to play music to bring people together so that they can celebrate, forget about their problems, and just have a good time.

When did you start playing music?
I played my first show when I was 16 years old.

What are some fun bands that you've hung out with?
I really enjoyed hanging out at a party once with MXPX (from Washington State). I am also good friends with Fictionist (formerly Good Morning Maxfield). I have played a few shows with them as well as attended many of their shows just as a fan.

Besides music, what do you like to do?
I love learning, playing soccer, speaking Spanish, eating good food, travelling, and spending time with friends and family.

What/who inspires the music you write?
Music, relationships, love, heartache, awkwardness, confusion, good times, excitement, etc. Basically all of the things I feel lead me to write music (or eat ice cream).

Who are your favorite bands/artists?
Coldplay, John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, Death Cab For Cutie, Dan Wilson, Ingrid Michaelson, Fictionist, Johnny Flynn and many others.
