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.
