Born in St. Paul, MN - Ever since I was five years old I have been involved in music, art or film in one way or another. I enjoy all aspects of the writing and recording process and my goal has always been to be creative as possible. I am heavily influenced by the late 60's and early 70's music including: Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Nick Drake, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd Alice Cooper and Deep Purple to name a few. The early 90's "Grunge" sound has another huge influence on me including: Alice in Chains, Jane's Addiction, Soundgarden, Bob Mould and Nirvana.
I started off playing Bass guitar when I was nine, then moving to Drums for 13 years. I never felt quite settled until I fell in love with the Gibson Les Paul, then I started to write music. I love all aspects of the recording process, especially sound effects and realized that I had a new "pallett" of things to choose from in order to make the type of songs I wanted to make.
