My Story

Growing Up

I grew up in a small suburb of Dallas Fort Worth called Roanoke, TX and had quite the unusual upbringing.

My mom got me violin lessons when I was four and had no idea what was happening, other than that I went to school at home and that seemed pretty weird.

Even though I did orchestra, string quartet, went to see symphonies, and was regarded as exceptionally talented, I still hated all of it.

Enter: The Loop Pedal

I finally went to a real school (although it was private unfortunately) my freshman year of high school and I was incredibly excited.

I soon realized "real" school also meant lots of homework and late nights studying for tests. Not a fan.

Looper pedals however, I was a huge fan of. When I turned 16, a friend of mine brought one into class one day and he graciously allowed me to borrow it.

At the time, I barely knew what to do with it. Despite that, I began to fall in love with the violin again. Apparently it wasn't the instrument I hated, just the music I played.

One Saturday I had a wedding to play at but I found out it was canceled. Devastated I wasn't going to make my $200, I decided to try street performing (busking). To my great surprise, I made $175 in about two and a half hours of playing. At that moment, I knew it was possible for me to make money doing music.

Spicy as an Adult

Since that day, I've done all the shows I could, and a few that I couldn't.

I've played with big bands, solo for thousands of people, and on TikTok live with absolutely no one watching.

To me, the greatest joy is being able to make music and see the effect it has on people.

The last step in my journey has been taking a very expensive music production, mixing, and mastering course. I only just finished it a few months ago and have been practicing, producing, and doing everything I can to output the highest level of quality so the next chapter is unwritten.

Regardless of what happens though, I fully intend on making the most of it.
