My Heroes

Your new jam for 2022 just dropped. Available now.

Now we can move on to the nonessentials.
I’m a musician, poet, and author. My music showcases my love of electronic/rock, a genre that lets me create a layered backdrop for introspective and poetic lyrics.

Come along if you like songs and stories that are sometimes sad and angry, often layered with emotion, and always honest.

City on Fire

My song “City on Fire” was released July 9, 2021. I wrote it off and on from 2016–2020, when it felt like so many things were falling apart…but it also felt like they needed to fall apart. So, if at any point during those years you felt disillusioned, angry, afraid,...
