Bio:
Born and raised in California by two wonderful parents. Both Mom and Dad were very musical. And as far as I can remember, there has been music being played at home all the time.

I started music in 6th grade playing the trombone, and ended up playing it for 6 years. I have played in Concert, Marching and Jazz band throughout my early school years. One instance, my music teacher ask me to learn a Jazz song on the electric Rhodes Piano (simple chords and a small solo). After that I was hooked. I love the sounds it made. I was always excited for practice when I could play the Rhodes.

Having a piano at home helped a lot. I was never able grasp the theory of the treble cleft playing the trombone for so long (lazy I guess). So, I self taught myself to play the piano by ear. And that's how I have been doing it for all these years.

I have played in several bands ranging from electronic to Classic Rock and with some Jazz. My love for music is writing songs that are very melodic somewhat dark and dreamy.

Music Background Banged head on Mom's piano until age 9. Started beginning band in 6th grade playing trombone. Played trombone until sophomore in High school. Played electric accordion as first keyboard. Music theory in college/concert band with music recording classes. Bought my first Yamaha portatone at age 17 with my brothers credit card. Roland Juno 106, korg wave station and ensonic ESQ1 by the time of age 21. Was involved in bands from hardrock/techno/jazz and top 40 all of them sucked. Maybe it was me...
Music Skills None, just love to create.
