Born at home, iD has always stood out from day one. iD grew up in the town of Ambridge outside of Pittsburgh, PA in Beaver County. Ambridge fell apart after steel mills closed and since has been a relic of what it used to be. Raised by recovering addicts/alcoholics iD was always influenced by the result of drug use and criminal lifestyle. By age 14 iD got into selling & experimenting with drugs. Due to his family's background iD constantly had to hide this side of his life from his home. "When I started, I never cared about police or getting in trouble with the law, I feared my mom and dad finding out more than anything, and that's what kept me out of trouble." By age 20 iD decided he had enough of that life and started working a 9-5 that his best friend got him to try and help change. His childhood friend got him the job and after proving himself to his superiors he quickly began to climb up in the company. Soon enough, iD collaborated with his immediate boss to pitch opening a recording studio to the owner. They got their wish and this is where iD got his first chance to run a professional studio. "I honestly didn't know what I was doing, I just knew enough to get it done. Once I had a studio to myself, I stayed there so much that I ended up hurting all of my relationships outside of music. I told my girl who I had been with for 3 years that she wasn't as important as music to me. It was hard but it was the truth at the time and since then there have been many more obstacles I had to overcome and not many of them compare to that in hindsight." Since then, iD quit his 9-5 and has moved on to open his own studio in the South Side of Pittsburgh and helped build the movement OSFM (Outspoken & Free Minded). iD has a vision to move the masses through his music and build a pipeline in Pittsburgh to help future artist have a way to be heard outside of the city. iD is now an artist, producer, engineer and entrepreneur making music infused with his real life experiences while reflecting the Beaver County, PA lifestyle.
