I've been in love with music since (apparently) before I can remember. There is a picture of me as a baby still in diapers holding myself up at the piano. Music still has a strong hold on me and that's how I want it.  Music  - Melody, Harmony , and Rhythm is a natural part of life on this planet. The closer I get to music, the closer I get to love, peace, and happiness. 

Musical Dream/Fun Fact: 

I performed with The Roots at Scott Stadium for a crowd of 55,000 people at The Concert For Charlottesville
