Before turning 22 he had toured overseas, played in front of crowds as large as 50,000, performed live on MTV, and been featured by radio stations and magazines in multiple countries. In 2010 he joined L.A. based rock band Love and a .38 and has been performing and recording with them nonstop ever since, building a worldwide fan base almost unheard of for an independent rock act in 2016.
