At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: - Die-hard Wizards fan
- Parents were Peruvian immigrants that met in the DC area and raised me here
- I have technically opened for Juicy J as part of GMU's Mason Day, which is just hilarious

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: I aim to write very introspective, intimate music. My latest project is centered on the concept of a plea - how pleas move and stir our lives, the different pleas we implicitly/explicitly exclaim. I wrote a song about my immigrant kin called "Proper Place," which allowed me to discover that desiring belonging is not particular to the immigrant.
