In 2014, I self-produced / released, Love Letters, a full-length album. The majority of this work was recorded
at my home studio and some tracks were captured at mr. Smalls on the North Side of Pittsburgh. I worked

opportunity to open for artists I respect and admire. Notable Performances include: Club Café Pittsburgh with Sam
