The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned: Invest In Yourself and Follow Your Passions

I’ve been making music my whole life. I started playing piano at age five, guitar at twelve, and started writing songs around the same time.

Music Cities: Sacramento

My city is Northern California’s best kept secret, so don’t go spreading any of the information I’m about to share with you. As a cultural/musical hub we have a long way to go, but the beauty and easy lifestyle of Sacramento are hard to match. Sacramento sits on the confluence of two rivers and boasts the 2nd most trees of any city in the world. Add to that a bikeable city-center and close proximity to Yosemite, San Francisco and Wine Country and you’ll see why I call Sacramento home. The…
