This Midwest born singer/songwriter started playing guitar in high school but ended up finding that is was a start of a new direction in life. Being a life long poet he started to putting words to music. He studied Architecture in college, wrote songs at home, and played the bar scene at night. After a short employment in the career field he went away from the corporate calling. He turned in his white collar and got into a van with friends with nothing more than a full tank of gas and a case of noodles. They managed to live completely off of music no matter what city they stopped in. The spur of the moment tour lasted the entire summer and cemented a love of music.
