I remember the first movie I ever saw in a movie theater. It was 1992 at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, CA. The movie was Aladdin. And like many, many children then and all the way up to today, I was absolutely mesmerized by Genie, the phenomenally cosmic wish-granter voiced by the phenomenally comic […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s funny how attached a person can get to material possessions. I’ve had my trusty silver 2001 Ford Focus since late-2004 and sadly, it was time for me to move on and send my little car off to greener pastures. Maybe it is because I’m another year older that’s making me so sentimental but thinking […]

It’s 6:22 am in Oahu, HI and I’ve been sitting in my room watching the sun rise directly outside my window. It’s the one time in recent memory that I haven’t been annoyed with myself for not adjusting to the local time. In fact the payoff is pretty great. It’s hard to beat a view […]

It’s wonderful how you never get tired of seeing beautiful sunsets. I get to see them almost everyday and they always feel new and exciting. I’m so spoiled to live in such a lovely place where catching one of these views is really a matter of heading home from somewhere equally as beautiful. It’s a […]

2010 SDMAs

I was blessed to find out that I have been nominated for a 2010 San Diego Music Award in the Best Acoustic category! I can’t tell you how much of a surprise it is for me and how completely floored I am. I am unbelievably honored to be even considered, especially since the category I […]

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 […]

I think salt gives me crazy dreams. Not to be confused with delusions. Life gives me those. I was at a summer camp and our parents were coming to visit so we had to make the place look halfway decent. Unfortunately for us when we found out they were coming, we only had 20 minutes […]
