I grew up mostly in West Lafayette, Indiana with a brief stint in New England. I despised two out of four of my piano teachers, and was lucky to have an awe-inspiring one in high school that spring boarded me away from Bach to Billy and Elton.
I signed up for every possible band at Wm. H. Harrison High School, and played every possible instrument - before I could get good at any of them. I spent most of college at Purdue playing in White Vinyl Sky, a rock band that loved John Mayer, The Black Keys, The Kooks and everything in between.
I've lived in Indy now for 5 years and call Brick House Dueling Pianos in Broad Ripple home base. My wife Mackenzie and siberian husky Mia keep me sane.
