At 16 years old I was already living on my own because my parents were divorced and I was very independently minded. I lived in my hometown of Covington, VA.
Every week, I was in clubs and bars till 3 a.m. because I was a keyboard player in a band.
If I stepped out of the club for fresh air, I always had to explain my way back in. During the day, I had a job at Skate World.
