Although I considers myself a San Francisco Bay Area native, I was actually born in Reno, Nevada. I then moved to the Bay Area, with my family when I was 4 months old, and started my k-12 education in Pleasant Hill at Cherry Lane Preschool, and finished in Orinda at Miramonte High School.
It was in the second grade at Gregory Gardens Elementary School, in Pleasant Hill, CA, where I performed for the first time, in public as a solo artist, in the school talent show. Although sports have always been a great passion of mine, especially the game of basketball, my love for music proved to have the greatest pull on my heart.
One of the biggest reasons that I wanted to pursue music was because of my fathers musical background as a singer/songwriter. He introduced me to singing and continues to help me develope as an artist.
