“I’ve accomplished more in independent music the past 2 years than I did my entire life prior to graduating college, all while working full time corporate-y jobs. Playing all over the state with Julianne Q & The Howl for the past 2 years has been nothing but exhilarating, and making major moves with Violet Crime has been incredibly fulfilling and has taught me that I’m capable of a lot more than I thought. People ask all the time, “why didn’t you study music? why don’t you just do music full time?” And it’s like… “why not both?”

My message is, if you feel like your full time job is preventing you from achieving your dreams, it isn’t. You are. The time is there, just use it wisely 🙂

My friends and family can attest, I am a disorganized, lazy, indecisive dude. If I can do it, you sure as hell can.”
