I've been writing music since I was 14. Some of the songs you will hear will be straight-forward rock songs, but some will be very experimental. I have several albums worth of material that I've written over the years, but I'm still in the process of recording it all. Each album is in a different style roughly based off of my influences at the time. Enjoy.
