I'm a native of the Cincinnati area. I've always loved and listened to an eclectic mix of music. Started playing guitar when I was in junior high school - used to play and sing with my older sisters. Started writing in High school. Was on again off again with playing and writing over the next 20 years. Play and write pretty steadily now.
