Born and raised in southern Illinois. Keyboard was my first instrument then moved on to percussion. Eventually learned guitar which has become my primary instrument.
My passion. Inspiration and meaning.
To write music that encourages others.
This world is fallen. But the education system would be a good start.

It is the main way I communicate my feelings with the world. It is truly a work of art.
A little nervous. But mostly excited.
The reality is a lot of the art aspect of music is gone. A lot of modern musicians will go off of a random recorded track that they did not write to create a song. And while I appreciate electronic music, I prefer real instruments.
Love the format and the fact that it isn't just a bunch of people wanting to sell their instruments.
Not being able to find like-minded musicians to write original music. A lot of people only want to do cover songs. They don't want to make art. I will never understand it.
I try to go out to local concerts as often as I can. I also introduce people to music from local bands.
They SHOULD have a unique sound. Sadly that is not the case. Most bands sound the same.
