· What song did you play today? – “I Know Zero Girls”
· What motivated you to enter the RVU Records original song competition? – Well, I’m the director…it would be kind of silly of me not to enter my own organization’s competition. I’m just happy that it’s given me the chance to go and record one of my songs.
· What will you do with the five free hours of studio time if you win? – I will re-record “Revolution 9” but make it actually sound good. Just kidding. I’ll probably record another song I wrote. I’ve got a good one called “Tomorrow Will Be Better” in the works.
· What is your favorite thing about the RVU Records studio? – The fact that IT IS MY KINGDOM. Also, the computer and speakers are awesome for blasting music and watching movies–not that I do that! 😉
· What is your favorite thing about playing music? – It takes me to a higher place. When I’m playing music, the world around me disappears and it’s just me and the song. I can feel the intensity of raw emotion flowing from my head down into my arms and into the instrument I’m playing.

- Tell me a little about how you came to write the song. What inspired you? – Last spring, a huge storm hit Vanderbilt’s campus. My friends and I were watching the lightning outside and it struck nearby our dorm. I am terrified of storms and how close the lightning had come, so my friend calmed me down by saying lightning never strikes the same place twice. The next day when I sat down to write, the phrase was still in my head and an idea was born!
