Essig was born in 1990 and grew up in Plainfield Il. He attended Northern Illinois University for music performance.

Upon graduation, he began performing regularly in Chicago playing with various artists spanning many different genres. In 2014 he became a member of the fusion group Marbin and toured extensively with them around the states. During this time Marbin opened for legendary guitarists Allan Holdsworth and Scott Henderson.
