I am just your average queer who grew up just outside of Minneapolis. As a kid, I played sports and I was a natural. I was generally regarded as a tomboy. Feeling like an outcast, I turned to music and started playing guitar. My interests were in typically found in a "man's world." I've played in bands over the years, got my degree in Guitar Performance and taught guitar lessons for many years. My style has always been influenced by musicians, male musicians. I wanted to be Slash when I grew up. Tattoos, loud guitars and women. I finally came out of the closet at the age of 25. My chosen family has supported me along the way and I am very grateful for them. This project will turn heads, open eyes and send out a positive image of those who don't fall neatly into one of two boxes. This is the kind of thing I wanted to see when I was younger. So, thank you for taking this project on!
