I was supposed to be named MacKenzie but pops didn’t want me to be called ‘Big Mac’.

My pops was a Navy Pilot, so from a young age I had traveled most of the country, and learned to make new friends quick.

I picked up the Upright Bass in fourth grade and never looked back — something about jazz seemed rebellious to me and I loved it. Listen to my first jazz EP here.

I earned the rank of Eagle Scout as a youth, and hiked over 600 miles during my time in Scouting.

Since then I've summited Mt. Hood, sailed the Florida Keys, canoed the Boundary Waters in Canada, and hiked the New Mexico high-desert.

Pops seeing me for the first time after returning from war. (I'm the small bald head next to my older brother) I guess you could say this was our first family photo.

I've loved the outdoors for longer than i can remember  Guess this explains why i joined scouts eventually earning the rank of eagle scout in 2010  Later on i would teach youth leadership and outdoor skills in the summers.
