I started playing piano as soon as I was able to sit on the bench and bang away at the keys. I grew up during the 1970’s and 1980’s. Great music was being played on the radio with new hit songs coming out all the time. Music TV shows were common, and even the theme music for TV shows was worth a listen. The movie soundtracks of the day were amazing! Music Appreciation was taught in grade school, and it seemed everyone had a record player or a tape recorder. Music was a prevalent and integral part of American society.

I loved all of it! I was first blown away by artists like Elton John, The Beatles, and Simon and Garfunkel. Next it was composer John Williams who scored the music for the Star Wars trilogy, Jaws, and the Indiana Jones movies. I then moved into Rap with artists like LL Cool J, Run DMC, and Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick. When I hit my teen years Rap turned to Reggae with artists such as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Black Uhuru.

During the summer of 1987 at age 14 I heard the Grateful Dead, and my life changed forever. I spent the next eight years listening to and following the Grateful Dead across the U.S.. Through the Dead I was introduced to a variety of artists including Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, Little Feat, The Allman Brothers and most of the Classic Rock and prominent Folk artists.

I began writing lyrics to my instrumental songs around this time, which I had been composing since about age 7. I also began playing in different bands which ranged from a Ska band, to Grateful Dead cover bands, to a Southern Rock band, and other original psychedelic projects. I attended Berklee College of Music for a summer session majoring in piano in 1990, and went back for a full semester in 1992. I also studied music and sound design for two semesters at Valencia Community College in Orlando, FL. Somewhere in there I started learning guitar as a secondary instrument.

In my early 20’s I began to find it difficult to find an avenue for Rock music. The music industry was beginning to collapse due to the new digital age. I had been involved with music for almost two decades, but just as I was getting ready to really rock, Rock & Roll was on the way out. In the Fall of 1994 I traveled to California and applied for a job with The Grateful Dead. They turned me down stating I’d need to submit something called a “resume”, and it would be less than a year later that Jerry Garcia would pass away.

Mentally I was in dire straits. One cold night in February of 1995 I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior while watching a TV broadcast of Charles Stanley’s In Touch Ministries. This simple act changed my life to this day.

God then directed me to go to the islands of Hawaii where I was introduced to Hawaiian music such as The Ka’au Crater Boys, Braddah IZ, and Willie K. (who I once got to jam with.) It was in Hawaii where I met my musical mentor Dennis McCleese who taught me the ropes of a professional musician’s life along with his wife Grammy Award Winner Pauline Wilson and their Motown Band the Motor City Angels. Through them I met, traveled, and worked with many industry professionals from world-class musicians to experts in sound, video, and staging.

In 1999 I moved from Hawaii back to the main land U.S. and recorded my first album Children of the Stars. A psychedelic Rock/Jazz album; it contains 9 tracks featuring a rhythm section, a horn section, and backing vocalists. For the next 17 years I played various gigs up and down the Eastern Seaboard. During these years I went back to school and picked up 4 college degrees in Information Technology, Electronic Engineering, Nanotechnology, and Business, along with two Specialist Certifications from Berklee Online in Bass and Keyboards.

Now in my mid-40’s, I’m a full-time musician and songwriter creating and playing my unique brand of music for all who will listen. My style reflects many of my musical influences, and I’m always attempting to tap into something new that I haven’t discovered before.
