About Me

I am a singer/songwriter from Huntington Beach, California. I will soon be serving my mission in Torreon, Mexico! I have a love for so many different things like film, Art, and sports. But my biggest passion is in Music! I have been singing ever since i can remember and I have learned to play the guitar and the piano. I love creating and conveying emotion and telling stories through music and I plan to make it my career.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in this church but when I really felt that I myself by my own choice was apart of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was when I was around 17.

As I got rid of that negativity, i began to really realize and feel the spirit, see the happiness of the gospel, and recognize the light of christ. I realize know that that lord had seen my struggles and had answered my prayers by placing these people into my life. I received so many blessing in my life when I accepted the gospel and it has brought me such joy that it has to be the work of god. As I got to the missionary age my faith was tested as the pressures to serve a mission were upon me. I had a million reasons not to serve a mission and big reason for me was my music career and how leaving for two years on a mission would effect my dream. I started to realize how selfish my reasons for not going were. the question of whether or not to serve a mission really force me to really regain a full testimony of the church. Once I did

How I live my faith
