AMBITIONS: I want my music to affect people in a positive manner, to motivate them, to bring love, comfort, and to allow the listener to connect in a deeply personal manner.

TURN-OFFS: Arrogance

TURN-ONS: Smiles

DREAM GIG: The Greek Theatre

FAVORITE LYRIC: This is tough with so many great lyrics out there, but I really like the words in Sleeping at Last’s song, “Clockwork.” A few lines are “future gardens wait patiently below and somehow we smell them, blossom through the snow.”

MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: Seeing Sigur Rós live for the first time was mind blowing.

I WROTE THIS SONG: To tell a story about the journey of searching for true meaning in a relationship with a person and “finding what we are looking for.”
