Zen is a UK born, California bred, performer, musician and songwriter.

Zen grew up on the San Francisco Bay Area Peninsula, in what is now known as Silicon Valley, and in 2007 graduated from the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA where his focuses included Guitar Performance and Music Business. Upon returning to San Francisco, his band Please Do Not Fight became a staple of the California Bay Area music landscape. Before disbanding in 2012, the band hosted a series of rock concerts, saw airplay on alternative radio mainstay Live 105 and performed with the likes of Young The GiantOK GoThe Dø and The Jealous Sound.

Since then Zen has continued writing and performing his unique brand of power pop folk under his own name, opening up for The Matches at Leo's in Oakland, CA and recording new material at The Dirt Room with producer Jonathan Devoto.
