I'm always interested in meeting high-level and motivated artists if not for anything other than networking purposes. If I could have it my way, I'd be playing and/or working on music every day, 365 days a year.

Influences

Everything that I listened to growing up, and everything that I've studied, which is a lot of stuff I'd like to think.

I'm from Kauai, and in my pre-teens, [embarrassingly] I played (and subsequently listened to) a lot of Super Nintendo.
In my early teens, I listened to and played pop punk (Blink-182, Sum 41, etc.).
In my later teens, I listened to and played thrash metal and power metal (Metallica, Iron Maiden, etc.)
In my early 20's I moved to Seattle. I listened to modern versions of the aforementioned thrash metal and power metal (Nightwish, Children of Bodom, etc.)

By my mid 20's, I went full time pro and did very little recreational study/listening. I found myself listening mostly to what I was working on for performances 99% of the time. This included (and was not limited to) Hawaiian Luau music, Reggae, Hawaiian Reggae (Jawaiian), Pop, anything Top 40's, Country, Jazz, Big Band, K-Pop, etc.

Nowadays I like to listen to and play any genre as long as it's "good."
