Born and raised in the Chi-City. More specifically, although I spent the first five years of my life in Logan Square, I grew up in Ill Vill's K-town. While many of my friends were being lured into the local gang culture, I was drawn to Chicago's hardcore punk scene and spent my teen years at the infamous and beloved Fireside Bowl. By the late 90's the punk scene started to resemble the gang culture I was growing up in, so by '99 I told myself I was done with it and decided to focus on my other passion... writing/filmmaking. I've been at it since I was 16 and haven't stopped. Won't stop. Can't stop.
