Where to begin? I started writing songs at the age of 15... older than some and younger than most, I suppose. I started playing guitar because my older brothers played guitar. None of them ever pursued it seriously but they played because that's just what you did. "Chicks dug it" or something like that. I always found that song writing was a way to express myself and guitar playing was the vehicle to get it out there.
