Personal Quote:

I like to be onstage. I like to write pop-rock songs. That's what everyone wants to hear from me, and that's when everyone goes ape-shit with the fist-pumping and all. But there are different sides to me. I enjoy sitting down to the piano and telling this in-depth story and writing an emotional ballad. See more »
