I started playing music at age three- it was in my blood... I grew up immersed in the music festival scene. My parents are big music fans and my biggest supporters. I fell in love with the acoustic bluegrass sound but my first fiddle teacher would only teach me Christmas music. So I traded in my fiddle at age 6 and taught myself hoe to play mandolin. Shortly after, I started writing my own music. Our family didn't have TV or video games so I guess all that time was spent on my music which really advanced my knowledge of the fretboard.

I was so lucky to enter the recording studio at age 14 to record my first CD of original tunes, "Crooked Mandolin." Those dreams most kids have about being locked up for the night in a toy store, well my dream came true in the music studio. I wish I could roll out a sleeping bag and stay there for a long, long time. We recorded in analog on 2 inch tape at Tiny Telephone Recording in San Francisco. I learned so much from this adventure.

After the recording came out, I started picking around on the guitar. I've been putting a bunch of time in on guitar lately and really enjoy the balance between that and my mandolin. I'm looking forward to getting back to the studio as soon as we can sell enough albums to help fund the adventure.

I hope you enjoy my music. If you do, please share with your friends. I dream of touring someday and playing on the stage of all these epic venues staggered across the country...
