1. When did you first pick up a guitar?
  I think I started piano lessons when I was five but I didn't get that first electric guitar until I was maybe 13 or 14 I think.   2. I still remember, the first magazine that made an impression on me as a kid   Speakig of guitar, I was pretty obsessed with Guitar World magazine when I was a kid. I remember it was the first magazine I ever subscribed to. You know, long before there were websites or blogs or anything like that you'd have to wait every month to get your favorite magazine in the mail and I lived in the middle of nowhere so I think the mail took even longer to get to us. I don't even think cable tv was available in our area until I was around 12 if that doesn't tell you anything. But yeah, I was all about the music magazines when I was a kid... probably not a surprise.   3. My high school years involved a lot of   I played ice hockey from 7th grade on and that was my priority until music took over. Both made me exceptionally uncool in high school. Back then, where I was from both playing music and playing hockey made you a total outcast so I had like a double negative you know? Nowadays I think being in a band in highschool makes you a cool kid but when I went to school that was definitely not the case. I did a lot of avoiding school functions in general and hoping school would hurry up and end.

4. Now I get to work with   A lot of times I feel like I work way too much with myself but most of the time I get to work with a bunch of super gifted musicians and songwriters like all of the guys who played on my record and creative people like my buddy Brent Bell who directed "The Devil Inside"   5. I have a crush on   Shae Acopian Detar - (http://ShaeDetar.com)   6. I now live in   The hills of Hollywood, California.
7. What do you think the perception of you is in the music scene?   I have absolutely no idea. Haha.   8. We are almost done here. I love   Frozen Yogurt and coffee... and I guess coffee flavored frozen yogurt. But definitely not frozen yogurt flavored coffee. Yuck. But there is a place in Los Feliz where you can get a shot of espresso poured over your frozen yogurt. I just discovered this. It's the best of both worlds.   9. If you could leave us with one thought, what would it be?   I have a record I am giving away for free... no strings attached. Just head over to my website to download it if you want. That'd be awesome. Thank you!
