Missoula, MT | Musician
  • I have always loved the classics like James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, and Prince. For solo artists Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Ben Howard and Ed Sheeran. That group has pretty much been my stable for the last 5 years.
  • I don’t play any normal sports per say but I do partake in some yoga and meditation from here to there. Helps keep the mind relaxed and body sharp.

“I live each day trying my best to inspire change in the hearts of people and spread the joy I have been fortunate enough to find in my life. Life is crazy and it turns you upside down in a heartbeat. It takes you to dark places and some beautiful places, but no matter what I believe its important to stay thankful through it all. I know I wouldn’t be the person I am without the good and the bad.”

What are you looking for in a Network?

I want to partner with a group of people that share an equal if not greater thirst for living life. There are partnerships and there are contracts. Partnerships are based on hard work, love and intrinsic motivation to be better. Contracts are based on obligation, demand and punishment. Don’t get me wrong I understand that contracts are a necessary part of business but I love people. I want to work and grow with people, not a computer. So I suppose I’m looking for like minded artists and people alike to invest in and share my life with. Like I would a friend. In return I want, really I need that in order to justify putting my all into something.
I hope that answered your question.

What events do you attend?

Well, I live in Missoula, MT so there are concert every week here. Whether they are open mic and house concerts to theater and concert hall venues. Currently Tech 9 at the Wilma. I tend to watch mostly local artist at the pub or coffee house. I would love more music to flow through Missoula in the future.

Who do you look up to in your profession and why?

Jason Mraz. A lot of it has to do with his song writing skill and his word play. Every time I listen to one of his songs I find something new or see the song in a whole new light. Also for the longevity of his career. He has some of the most loyal fans I have ever seen, myself being one of them. That is such an important role when it comes to making a career out of your own hands. There is also the Jason Mraz foundation which is another way that he has given back to his community. That is so big for me because if you are lucky enough to have a spotlight on you then I believe it is your duty to the world to share it and help make this earth a better place. So Jason Mraz has definitely been a large contributor to my music and my life.

Do you create/co-produce your own video content?

I dont consider myself a photographer or videographer because its something I’ve just started getting into. I do have plans and aspirations of becoming a daily vlogger and begin learning the ins and outs of something like that. At the moment all of my funds have been diverted into creating an album so buying photography equipment has been put on the back burner but without a doubt I see myself getting into that one day.

What are the top 5 brands you’d like to work with?

I would love to work with Sure Technology, Apple, SonyMusic, Live Nation, Taylor Guitar and of course EdgeTV.
