“How The Military Shaped Me”

My time in the Marine Corps gave me structure in my life. Everything was black and white with strict rules to follow. That structure served me well throughout my life after the Corps also. Immediately after leaving the Marines I began working in the oilfield, which is much like the military, very structured. It’s been a huge transition going into the Music Industry where there are basically no rules as far as creativity goes. You can make and play any style of music you want, you can make any lyrics you desire, and there’s no right or wrong way to make music. The one quality that I have found that’s relatable no matter what journey I’m on is persistence. Just never giving up and doing what it takes to make your dreams and visions come true! I am looking forward to using my military experience for inspiration in my song writing and sharing that with the world.
