Personal Note

Music has always been a passion of mine. In the last ten years I’ve had an opportunity to form a Chicago band with some friends playing gigs in many of the bars in Lakeview and Lincoln Park. It’s been such a great experience that it reminded me that you should never set aside what you love to do. Life is all about striking the right balance. You can’t do everything you want to do but it’s worth trying.
