Born in 1992 and raised in the heart of downtown Toronto, I began playing piano at the age of 7. When I wrote my first song at the age of 8, I knew that music would be a lifelong pursuit and a means to my creative expression. With my newfound passion, and the influence of The Beatles, Radiohead, Elliott Smith, Paul Simon, and Leonard Cohen, I started my first band, Reality Control, in grade 9. Today, as a 4th year University philosophy student and a poetry enthusiast, I have managed to combine these interests into my songwriting to shape my current and evolving musical artistry. I am an accomplished songwriter, guitarist, pianist, and I have taken vocal lessons for many years. I am determined to make music my lifelong career. To date, I have produced three CD's, played most of the venues in the GTA on a regular basis, filmed live music videos, had exposure in the press, and have written close to 100 songs in total. Altogether, my overall drive and inspiration is the emotion, communication, and the telling of a story through my musical craft.
