I think surrounding myself with very talented musicians got me to where I am today. I began my first band in 2017 called ElephantTalk, which was a Progressive Rock band (you can find us on all streaming platforms if interested). However, when I started attending Berklee College of Music, the band started slowing down and I began collaborating with new people. Once Coronavirus hit however, that all went down the drain and I thought to myself "Maybe write your own music!". So I did just that. While working on my own music starting in March of 2020, I was able to release my first single "Alive" that is on all streaming platforms. I'm working on releasing another single with a much different sound, and an EP soon after. Of course Coronavirus is a tragedy, but I am thankful that it pushed me to write my own material and put it out there for everyone to hear.

Since I first sat behind a drum set at the age of three, my passion for music was born. I would "sing" around the house, as my parents' ears would bleed. It was actually a joke that they really thought I wouldn't turn out to be a singer with how bad I was.
At the age of seven I began attending the School of Rock. This soon became my second home where I was surrounded by adults and children with the same love for music.
A few months later I performed on stage for the first time, and with the sound of the applause, I found my home. That same age, I had the opportunity to perform at the Highline Ballroom in NYC.
A couple of years later is when I learned how to play guitar, piano, bass, and drums, which overall helped me improve as a musician. At the age of fourteen, I was honored to be a part of the School of Rock National Allstars, where I got to play many venues around the country and at Gathering of the Vibes in Connecticut. Years following I was able to play at the MoPop festival in Detroit and Lollapalooza in Chicago on three different occasions.
