My passion for music started the moment I picked up a guitar at age 10, and I’ve been playing and performing ever since. I love writing my own music, and gravitate towards folk and indie/ pop rock. Now a full time musician, I’ve been able to make a career out of performing professionally, directing and editing my own music videos, and helping younger artists find their own voice. When I’m not at home obeying my fluffy evil cat, Margot, I enjoy walks with my dogs, driving my orange scooter for a boba, and cosplay.

I originally got into music when I saw my older brother riffing on his electric guitar and I naturally wanted to be just like him, so at age 6, I started my guitar lessons. From there it was a slippery slope into wanting to know every in and out of music. This lead me to quickly learn every instrument I could get my hands on. I really enjoy playing in jazz bands to challenge myself. Outside of music I'm an armchair mathematician and scientist, and also love race cars.

I grew up with multiple musicians so music was always a part of my life. I’ve sang since I can remember and tried quite a few instruments throughout school, before starting piano at 13. Since then I’ve been learning more, writing songs and now teaching!

I have been writing and playing music since around age 9, and started playing out
solo at age 14. I consider myself extremely lucky to express my feelings through
music. I write songs from the heart, and my goal is for my lyrics to resonate with
others while also being an emotional outlet for myself. I find inspiration in nature
which you can find many references to in my songs, as well as my art. If I'm not
playing tunes, I'm either gardening or creating watercolor paintings.

I got into music the moment I saw AC/DC's "Live At Donington" concert. As soon as I got my hands on a guitar, I dove deep into all the great bands that have their names covering the history books, and learned as many of their songs as I could. Turns out, I was pretty good at getting my friends into it as well, and soon, I had joined my first band. I began playing local rock clubs at 16 and absolutely loved the rush from being on stage. I've had the pleasure in sharing the stage with awesome bands such as Queensryche, Great White, and other touring acts. I look forward to helping the next generation of rockers that have passion and interest in their music.

I first picked up guitar when I was 12 and have years on years of band experience. I play bass in First to Eleven, and guitar in Refuge Rock n' Country and Daytona Beach 2000. I founded Monochrome Studios (originally Rock School Studios) to help musicians of any age in our area accelerate their skills in music, but to go much further than just learning an instrument.

Favorite Genres
Rock, Alternative, Blues

Music has always been a part of my life. By the time I was 16, I knew it was all I
wanted to do. Forming a band, playing house parties, graduating to the bar scene,
I couldn’t get enough of live shows. Playing loud Rock & Roll in front an audience
was the most exciting thing I had ever experienced. I was hooked. The weekends
never came fast enough and I never wanted it to end. As time went on, I naturally
gravitated to a more laid-back approach to music - an acoustic guitar. With that
guitar I was able to accomplish my long-term goal of playing music full-time. Being
a solo acoustic artist has allowed me to fully be myself and share my never ending
love of music. This is something I look forward to passing on to others.

My passion for music began at a very young age. My Uncle is a musician and
always played Led Zeppelin songs. I remember waking up to “Over the Hills and
Far Away” almost every morning as a child. When I was 4 I got my first piano. I
started writing/playing songs by ear. Though I love all instruments, I knew I was
meant to be a drummer. I started dreaming about having my own kit and got my
first pair of sticks from the Hard Rock Hotel when I was 12. I started playing guitar
hero world tour through middle/high school and couldn’t get enough. By age 18 I
purchased my first kit and it was history from there. Today I am a fully self taught
musician who drums for several bands in the local music scene. Outside of music I
enjoy traveling, skating, and being full time cat Mom.

I got my first guitar because of Guitar Hero II when I was 10, and since then I've had an avid passion for playing, writing, and recording. With that passion I also developed an eye for visual media, delving deep into graphic design and video production early on around the same time. In 2011, I officially started working in multimedia, all self-taught or taught directly by people with crazy reputations in the industry. I played in Jazz Band and Percussion Ensemble in high school; afterwards I was a guitarist in a Metal band and drummer a Pop Punk Band but now have my solo project, Snowfall.
