Kirk is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago with a degree in Anthropology, but has had a lifelong passion for music. Kirk’s interest in playing music began when he joined his middle school band on percussion. After playing percussion, Kirk developed an affinity for learning other instruments as well. Since then, he has taught himself to play guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, piano, and theremin, and is always searching for a new instrument to try to learn.
Over the years, Kirk has performed in bands with friends, usually playing guitar, bass, or drums in a variety of bands, performing at everything from friends’ birthday parties and farmers markets to small venues in Chicago. Kirk also loves writing and recording original music in his free time. Kirk began working at Bach to Rock in January of 2019 to pursue music as a career rather than just a hobby, and has loved working there ever since. When Kirk is not playing music, he enjoys watching movies, camping, and trying new restaurants and recipes.
