He possesses so many qualities I aspire to." -- Larry, on Edge

U2 has pretty much been a part of my life since I was a little kid. My dad had a 45-minute commute to work and my sister and I went to daycare and summer camp just a few minutes away from his job. On the car-rides down he would play all of his favorite music ranging from The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen and of course U2. My earliest memory of U2 is sometime not too long after the release of All That You Can’t Leave Behind, when I was probably 4 or 5, and hearing “Elevation” during one of these car rides. I really became a U2 fan right around the Innocence and Experience (I/E) Tour seeing some of those shows at MSG and they really changed my life. Since then I’ve been a massive U2 fan. I also bought a hat after the last I/E show I saw and I’ve pretty much worn it every day since then.

Outside of U2 I’m a guitarist, songwriter, producer and student at Berklee College of Music studying Music Business Management. I’m also a die-hard New York Mets fan.
