ABOUT

I appreciate most music genres but I mostly perform Jazz/Smooth Jazz, R&B, Neo Soul, Hip Hop, Christian/Gospel, and Funk music. I have performed in alternative rock groups and have much experience in the genre. In addition to performing, I also produce. I have played locally and toured various places throughout the country but took a hiatus for a few years. Meanwhile, I have been honing my skills and have some new equipment to experiment with. I even have some new tracks that are ready to perform live. I look forward to creating something dynamic, exciting, fun, and different than what is typically offered in the DFW metroplex. If you are interested in joining me on this path, please do not hesitate to respond.
