What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today? I was born into music. My father encouraged me to play for most of his life and I figured out very young I was a writer. Tapping that creative side of my soul has always been my way of expressing or healing. It wasn’t until I found purpose with my music that I began to take it serious as a career option. My first goal is always to help those in need and my music is a reflection of that philanthropical ambition. To the second half of this question it is not what would I be doing but rather what have I done? For the last 11 years I have been a full time firefighter for the City of Palo Alto and have always given my life to service. As a Marine Combat Veteran and a firefighter much of my work with and away from music has been in Veteran and First Responder mental health.
