My Music Sounds Like

I like to blend rock, pop, and electronic (ambient, downtempo, lo-fi) music. I love synthesizers, Fender guitar tones, and real drums. I also love massive reverb vocals! You won't necessarily hear all of that in all my music, but that's a taste.

In My Other Life I ...

I enjoy spending time with family and close friends. I dream of living out in the countryside and maybe owning a small hemp farm one day. I'm also a fan of sci-fi (Star Wars, Star Trek: Next Generation, Firefly, The Orville).
