I'm always available in the studio and for gigs when time allows. My appearance is top-of-the-line, as well as my musical abilities. I'm a Juilliard-graduate-trained classical pianist, and I carry that over to my synths and workstations, without ruining the groove. I love playing anything creepy, happy, sad...you name it, I'll compose it, notate it, read it, record it...I'll just do it! I've played in 2 symphonies, marching bands, wind and jazz ensembles, concert bands, metal bands, and done extensive studio work. I've toured and played several shows ranging from 500-2000 people, including Disneyland, resorts, and Six Flags. I work strictly on a professional level, and am probably the most versatile, theory-skilled, classically trained keyboardist around. I prefer to perform rock on stage, but I'll do anything in the studio, even polka! I'M MOST INTERESTED IN PLAYING KEYBOARDS AT THE MOMENT, AS I MANAGED TO SPRAIN MY MIDDLE FINGER...which means I've been giving the rock 'n' roll salute a lot! :)
