One of my favorite things in this whole world is to play the ukulele. I was first introduced to the ukulele because my brother wanted one, since it was the “thing” at the time.

Currently, my favorite songs to play are: “Hey Soul Sister” by Train, “Stolen Dance” by Milky Chance, “Get Out” by Casey Abrahams, “All of The Stars” by Ed Sheeran, “Stitches” by Shawn Mendes, and “Riptide” by Vance Joy.
