It’s funny how life looks in retrospect. You never really know what’s happening in the moment and the more you try to control it, the less fun it becomes and in a lot of ways, that was my reality. This past year has been a weird and wild time for me, musically. I’m sure you’ve […]

The Original

I always felt like those ruminations and affirmations of self that people post on Facebook and Twitter in silly fonts and with inspirational backgrounds were just that- cheesy. But lately, I’ve taken to many of them simply because I found myself in a place that was darker and more cynical than I wanted and because […]

I was walking to El Zarape with Ashley for lunch (order the calamari burrito- seriously) and I had this thought in my head, as I often do. Or at least, try to. Anyway, the thought went like this (hit it): what if you modeled your life after the concept of “no waste”? I had that […]

San Diego Acoustic

Check out this interview I did with sandiegoacoustic.com. I know it’s a little “tl;dr” (too long; didn’t read) but hopefully this gives a little bit of insight to how conflicted and sarcastic of a person I am! Many thanks to Ken and Dave for reading, proofreading, editing and re-reading my thousands of words. Also, stay […]

When a person decides to “become a musician,” I wonder if they’re really ready for what that means. With all of the YouTube stars and American Idols running around these days, I find myself in a weird place. Mainly, from the outside looking in. I see the monumental success that some of those people have […]

I’ve never been a confident person. In fact, more often than not, I fight little battles with myself and end up losing to the pessimist in me. It was getting pretty bad at one point that you could kind of tell that I have these weird internal struggles onstage, which is really not the time […]

One of my favorite people in the San Diego music scene is fellow singer/songwriter, Dave Boodakian (aka Dave Booda). While I don’t get to spend very much time with him, nor are we extremely close, I have watched him become a strong advocate for believing in one’s self. He has these philosophies about being successful […]

If you live around the Normal Heights area in San Diego, you may (on occasion) see me running around the neighborhood in a white t-shirt and short shorts, scaring all of the elderly folk around. Every once in a while, I’ll run up behind people who are also jogging or enjoying a nice stroll with […]

A few days ago, the new Foo Fighters album came out and along with it, torrents of music press pushing the angle that the Foos’ record label wanted us to see- namely, that Dave Grohl and the Foos are the most consistently good rock band in the world. Now, I feel myself wanting to start […]

I’ve been mulling this idea over for a long time and I think it’s finally time to put this into action. A few years ago, Radiohead implemented the idea of “Pay What You Want” for their outstanding album “In Rainbows” which people went onto their website and had the option to literally pay what they […]

As a self-proclaimed artist, it’s always been a major struggle for me to ask people for their opinions. I know that I write music for myself and not to please other people, but I often find joy in making people happy. It’s a strange Catch-22 (and a very fine line) between maintaining artistic integrity and […]

It must happen to everyone… I have this waking nightmare that something is going to go horribly wrong during the tour. Nothing life or death really but more like I won’t make it to a show on time because the car breaks down or I get sick and have to cancel half the tour. I […]
