About me:
My main focus is in music, it has been a for a few years now. Regardless if the endeavor lands me as homeless and broke, or at some time a small level of success. I will continue to pursue this path for as long as I am able to.

Currently I am working in three different avenues:

I have been playing keyboards for a little over twenty years now. I have no formal musical education, just a strong urge to write my own music. Ranging from electronic to jazz. Most of these samples are under developed basic ideas, for future projects. So they will lack the editing or polish of anything I would consider of commercial value. The only purpose for this so far has been for personal expression. No quantizing, no editing, its just straight recorded performance. In the future I will be adding fully polished projects, time permitting.

That’s the thing with music, it will swallow as much time and money that you can throw at it, without a guarantee of improvement. There will be many times I will venture down a new path, just to find the destination wasn’t worth the trip. Hey it happens. I wish like so many other artists, I could just claim everything I do is fantastic. But honestly it’s never the case.

With a co-writer Mike Hanrahan. Mike is an excellent guitarists, a good vocalists, but most importantly one hell of a song writer. Among other things he has a strong talent for percussion and a sense of rhythm within a couple of milliseconds. Over the last couple of years I have researching recording and mixing. I could write several books on what I don’t know, but the effort isn’t entirely in vain, since much of what we do has evolved in a better way. Our joint projects can be found at : http://www.soundclick.com/musicaldeviate

I also play keyboards for a progressive rock band. This is a new development and the band is as yet has no name. We are all excited about the potential considering the talent of the individuals.
