C H A P T E R 1 // G R O W I N G U P Southern California was such a special place to grow up. I was blessed to have a happy childhood and incredible parents. My dad was a pastor so I grew up in the church, which is what sparked my interest in music. Sports were always my thing but I picked up my first guitar around age 14 and by high school, I was leading worship every Friday. #Chapters
