I’ve always been a fan of music and have been endlessly fascinated by the mechanics of it. But what really strikes me about it is how much people can be moved- how people’s lives can be changed by hearing the first few seconds of a song like mine was the first time I heard John […]

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 […]

I’ve been calling myself a singer/songwriter for a while now. And as ambiguous and contentious as that label is for many of artists in the music community, it does make one thing undeniably clear- I consider myself to be a person that writes songs and sings. The only problem is that I have a hard […]

I played a show at the legendary Java Joe’s in Ocean Beach the other night and was overwhelmed by the amazing talent of the San Diego music scene. There are so many fantastic singer/songwriters here and it’s a shame that more people aren’t exposed to their music. I think Jeffrey Joe said it best when […]

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 […]

When I first started playing music, I knew right from the start that I would learn so much about myself through exploration, song-writing, performing, and so many other areas that come from being a musician. In the four and a half years that I’ve been performing my own music, I’ve come to understand so much […]

I’d like to dedicate a song to someone who I’ve gotten to spend a lot of time with in the last few months. A friend with benefits, if you will. This friend helped me through some hard times and made trips to crowded places so much easier. I knew it wouldn’t last, but I’ve enjoyed […]

A few days ago, my childhood friend Daniel said that he never would have guessed I would be “right brained”. I knew he was talking about my newfound interest in photography but it was such a strange idea to me that people would either be artistically inclined or primarily logical. I had never given it […]

What a strange ride the last six months have been. I didn’t think I’d come away from everything that has happened with anything other than a few scars and some new hardware in my hips, but I have to admit that I have been learning and experiencing new things non-stop since late-November. I’ve been back […]

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 […]

Saw this documentary on Vimeo the other day when I was going through some growing pains. The first few minutes of the clip really spoke to me about how I’ve always seen music and where I want to go with it. I’m thinking about possibly changing the shirts to say something more along those lines […]

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 […]

So I made a pledge to myself to start living an amazing life. Not that I don’t already live an amazing life, but I just want to start taking up other extracurricular activities. I just think it’s important to be well-rounded and have life experiences. I have some friends that go on trips all the […]
