Weekends

Thanks to my mom and dad for raising me on Rock N Roll, I have ventured from Chicago to come rock out with the best of Iowa. If you're trying to find me outside the studio your best bet will be front row at a concert, behind a camera lens, or hidden away behind a book...and maybe a bar or two ;)

  • This past Friday, Aveneged Sevefold, Breaking Benjamin, and Bullet for My Valentine took over the Cedar Rapids US Cellular Center and performed to a sold out crowd. This was my 2nd time getting to see A7x but my 1st time seeing them headline their own show, and they do not disappoint!

This comedian, John Mulaney does a pretty hilarious explanation on Late Night with Seth Meyers on what is wrong with the Rock Hall of Fame. Enjoy!
