I grew up in East Brookfield, a small town in central Massachusetts. I had always loved music as a kid, but when my dad first played me Jimi Hendrix I was hooked. I first began my musical journey playing snare drum in the Junior High School band, but after a few years I got restless and needed something else. Around 1996, I picked up my dad’s old hollow body Epiphone guitar, and I taught myself how to play by listening to some of my favorite artists. After a few years of learning the guitar I started to write my own songs. I first started recording my songs around 2000, and I have been writing/recording ever since.
My musical influences include: Alice in Chains, Days of the New, Pearl Jam, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, etc.
