One day I decided to learn guitar so I did…
then piano, then drums, ukulele, and bass guitar.

Resurrect is the second wind that empowers you to get back up and keep fighting. This was my first song originating on piano, the others started on the guitar. I wrote resurrect in the idea of simplicity, only using piano and strings to capture emotion.

I had composed and deleted this track at least three times. Then finally I sat down and finished it all within about a week.

I want to help others in realizing there is still hope.

My songs will…
remind you of the darkest moments and carry you forward to

Downriver Michigan…
is filled with local bands, mainly rock and metal genres.

I love the thrill of going to concerts. Someday I wish to be the one on stage.

Music business…
I find it vital to remind myself that my music is all about the music, never about the money. I advertise my songs because I want people to hear them and feel that connection, not to make a few dollars.

Social media…
There is good and bad in everything. Social media can help spread music, but also attracts the negativity. It is important to recognize the difference between an opinion, critique, and an attacking remark.

Singles vs an album…
It had been discussed to hold out on releasing songs until a full album was completed, but I could not wait that long. I now have three singles out and a music video.

I would love to have 5 minutes alone with… Hans Zimmer. He is my complete inspiration.

I write music that I feel…
Those who like it, like it. Those who don’t, don’t.

I am most afraid of…
Getting caught up in everyday life and losing my passion of writing music

My personal definition of success is..
For my other composition “The Dream” I entered it into the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, a worldwide competition. I became a finalist in the contest, and that gave me the spark to keep writing.

My over all goal for my life & career is… To be happy.

3 Ways that I challenge myself and how each one moves me forward towards my goal…

1)Being my own critic

2)Challenging my own skills to become a better musician

3)Not giving up when the going gets tough
