Got away from music for awhile and did some hiking... The record is just about finished. It is by far the most mature, honest, and cohesive piece of music I've ever been apart of. Some cool things are in the works... Stay tuned.

Dear friends, Thank you so very much for the birthday wishes. It's been a good year. I've accomplished a lot in my 26 years of life, but I can assure you that it is just the beginning! ... With every year I experience more purpose, hope, and meaning. I've written some of the best songs of my life this year (which I'll be able to share very soon!), I got to share the stage with Switchfoot, had a few songs on national TV shows, visited places I've never seen before, crossed paths with some of the most beautiful people... I can honestly say that I am LIVING LIFE the way it's intended to be lived.. I've learned that success has absolutely nothing to do with money, but everything to do with the way you allow yourself to experience the world around you.

I don't say or express this enough... But I feel unbelievably blessed to be able to write and share music. It truly is a gift... I mean that literally. Most of the time after I finish a song, it feels like it somehow composed itself. I don't have any musical training at all whatsoever. Most of the time I don't even know the names of the chords I'm using.. I used to think that it was all an accident, or I somehow "got lucky..." , but I've been learning that it goes much deeper than that. Writing these songs has helped me heal from some crazy things. I can't take credit for that; all I can do is be thankful. I found God (or rather He found me) through music and the beauty of the world that surrounds us.
I'm going into the studio to record some new songs very soon. By far the best and most relevant songs I've been given. Thanks for following me on this journey. Life is awesome.
