About
Minnesota-born and currently Chicago-based, i’ve been writing music since I was 12 years old. I’ve done a lot of performing in my life and my main skills revolve around singing, but now i’m trying to hone my songwriting skills and find my voice/style. A big fan of tiny/scraggly looking dogs, Oscar-baiting indie movies, tumblr poetry, and—of course—all aspects of music.
