Originally born on a military base overseas in an airforce family, that ended never being something i never knew. Life has a weird way of working. I was always a bit of a social outcast when i was young. Got into allot of fights when i was a kid. At some point my mother decided she was going to buy me a guitar. I was 7 years old and ill never forget the level of awe and shock as well as devastation (i was hyperactive and wanted to play drums just to hit things). Her nor I ever knew that I would end up onstage in front of 1000 people singing songs i wrote about the most difficult times in my life. Im 27 when i’m writing this. That was 20 years ago for my 7th birthday. Whether i performed or not id still play for myself. Music is what makes me happy, as cliche as that sounds its the complete truth. Ive played in a few bands The big letdown, Big scary Rabbits (BSR) and MOTEGA. Ive met some truly unforgetabke people in my life and lost a few aswell. For all ive been through the good the bad and the ugly. Im not sure id change much about it.
