What’s your instrument of choice?

My instrument of choice is acoustic guitar because I’m a chord junkie and it’s easy to sing along to.


What are you involved with musically?

My musical involvement is mostly for fun, I play covers and write some of my own stuff and occasionally do open mics.


Who are your biggest influences?

My biggest influences are Jimi Hendrix, because he’s the man, and The Ramones because they were the first band I was infatuated with, which led to my obsession with Rock music.


Who have you been listening to lately?

Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of Jack White.


What’s your plan for the future?

My plans for the future are to either work in radio or in music video production.


Any advice for aspiring musicians?

My advice for aspiring musicians is to find time to do whatever it is you want to do and don’t be afraid of the ridicule. There’s only room for improvement.
