Music has been my main focus for as long as I can recall. My father was an Audio Engineer for the Air Force Band when I was born. When I was 3 years old, he retired from the military, and the family moved to Las Vegas. Dad landed a gig as an audio technician for the Cirque du Soleil show, KA at the MGM Grand and 8 years later he became the Playback Engineer for The Beatle Love show at The Mirage.

So all this to say that I’ve been surrounded by music and music production my whole life. I started singing before I could talk (Thanks to “The Wiggles”) and around 5 or so, I learned how to use a microphone and a DAW. I think it was Cubase by Steinberg.

My mom got me into a performing arts middle school called KO Knudsen where I studied music theory and choir. I was accepted into the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts High School where I continued to study music theory and voice.

I currently spend my time composing music for my band 17° Below, as well as for myself and others in my home studio. My DAW of choice is Ableton Live. I use Celemony by Melodyne for vocal tuning and Native Instruments ‘Guitar Rig’ for guitar tones when recording.

I joined ASCAP when I was 17 and have been a proud member ever since.
