I was born on April, 2002. I am part of the LGBTQIA+ community (Trans). I am half Mexican/half Native American (Arapaho). I have been playing guitar for six years. I started in 2016 (1 year from being in max). I grew up in Ogden, UT. I love all forms of music. After asking others how they would describe me, they responded: Blunt, strong, loyal, persistent, and "dorky." Another said, "spontaneous, creative, musical, silly."


Guitars, men, happiness



As I sit here dreaming of you

Praying to god that my dreams come true 

you are the very thought that gets me through 

the day when I come home soon with you

My heart stays


1st verse: 


Thinkin’ in my mind that this is right

And knowing in my heart with you, I Want to spend my life - 

how’d I get so lucky to have you as my girl

Give me a chance, and I’ll give you the world. 

Life is hard, baby and people are mean. 

But you can keep your head high and lean on me if you need.

Every day’s a struggle but worth it in the end. 

To be with you as love and best Friend.


2nd verse: 


Wake up in the morning. You're the first thing on my mind. 

Day in, day out, thinking about you all the time. 

Give us a chance; we can mend your heart together, 

ride or die & we’ll always have each other.

I live the crazy life, run the streets day and night. 

I’m not used to having a partner, but I want you by my side.

Love is a crazy thing, but something we can share.

When you need me, baby girl, guess what? Just call, and I’ll be there.
