Growing up in a very musical family, I fell into music naturally, and early on. I was homeschooled all the way through high school, and was blessed with two amazing parents who invested in me, and nurtured my passion for music. With not many other things that interested me as a kid, I put most of my free-time into practicing my instruments and finding my voice. With my first laptop, and guitar, my passion for performing crossed paths with a new-found interest in mixing and producing.
I started posting videos on YouTube in 2012, with just an iPhone and my bedroom. They were pretty bad! But I had fun making them.
I was so blown away and excited when I got my first 1,000 views on one of my videos. So I kept creating. Kept posting videos. I had some early supporters online who really encouraged me to keep going. And I’ve never stopped since.
Today, I continue to make music, and enjoying a simple life with my beautiful wife Celine, and our doggie Jasper. I’m so unbelievably grateful for all the supporters who watch my videos and listen to my music - giving me the opportunity to do what I love full time.
