Bio:
I'm a 20 year old college student that loves music but never seems to have the time to do it justice. I dont really know what I really want out of life yet. Musical experience is fairly limited. I played piano since I was five off and on. I quit in high school because I wasn't motivated to practice. Sure enough I ended up picking up a guitar and got back into music again, although never for long enough at a time to really get decent. I discovered garageband and immediately wanted to try my hand at recording. Initially I wanted to do hip hop beats. . never did too many of those. Oh well. Currently I record whenever inspiration hits and I have an hour or more to kill, meaning I don't get to do much. I joined an acapella group called Emocapella, which is exactly what it sounds like. Its alot of fun and we don't take ourselves very seriously. Ive recently decided I want to be in a band at least once. So thats my next goal: getting better at guitar and working on my voice and then getting some friends together and jamming and seeing where that takes us. This turned out longer than I thought.

Some random facts: Im a city kid. I loooove latin american music and culture. I grew up on hip hop. I fell in love with jazz during my piano days. Some of my friends really dig the rock scene nowadays so Ive been influenced by newer indie stuff too, although I will always have a soft spot for anything from the 90's. I just love music.
**********************************************

So, I'm 21 now, delving more deeply into the musical world of hip hop and spoken word. starting to mess more with loops and samples instead of MIDI instruments, although i still do both. hopefully i'll be performing and putting out an album over the next year! thats the goal. peace.

**********************************************

22, finally in a band (TNTrio), performing regularly, working on a CD, trying to make as much out if it as I can while I can. I'm looking into working at a recording studio. Slowly, I can feel it coming.
*********************************************
24, spent 2 years out of college at a commercial recording studio that specialized mostly in hip hop, r&b & pop. That was a grind. Am currently working as a free agent, but recently have been working out of a premiere studio in the area with some incredible engineers (grammy winning nashville types) and the most beautiful gear and acoustics Ive had the pleasure of working with. Im in a band called Level 7 and do solo stuff as well. Music music music!!!
