My name's Garrett, I'm a 21y/o Junior at CSUN studying Cinema and Television Production, and just transferred from a school in Orlando FL. I work part time and study when I'm not working. I most recently played rhythm guitar and and with a group in FL but we dissolved shortly before I moved. Ever since then I've been so eager to get playing out here in SoCal :)

I’ve been playing music since before middle school, and up until college have consistently been involved somehow in music whether through Jazz Band, Marching Band, Wind Ensembles and private groups.

Most of my musical practice comes from me playing at home, working on my own stuff. I play at least an hour a day, every day of the week.
