The two biggest inspirations for my music are nature and love. I wrote my first song when I was 5 and I've been writing music ever since. I'm so grateful for my childhood having grown up by the beach in Southern California. I spent my my early days surrounded by nature: hiking, surfing, and camping. The ocean is a constant in my life and is never far from my thoughts. I've always drawn inspiration from both the good times as well as the bad. As a young person, I struggled with anxiety, which came to a head when I was in college. As my world grew smaller and smaller, I lost myself. Through the darkest times I decided not to lose hope and to keep fighting any way I could. I began to write, and write, and write! I wrote about everything that was good in my life including love, nature, and of a brighter future. These songs became a focal point for me and began to fill me with a newfound sense of purpose and meaning, reigniting that spark that I felt I had lost. It is my gratitude and love for music that has made me the person I am today and continues to drive me forward into tomorrow.
