Hey Thanks!

Making an album is a very simple thought. The execution of said album could not be more complex. This 5 month journey has taught me a lot about recording, writing, art, web design, video editing and enunciation. Most importantly, it has taught me that people are just wonderful. We live in a big world full of people with even bigger hearts. My name is on the cover of this album, but the folks below are responsible for it. I am blessed and I am unendingly thankful.




Thank you for continued love, support and inspiration:
