ABOUT

Currently committed as a keyboardist and songwriter with Blackjack Rose, an original band, and recently also part of a jazz/fusion trio, so not looking to join a band right now. Though I don't mind doing a friendly jam on a weekend or something in my neck of the woods.

I've been playing keys on and off most of my life, had piano lessons at starting around age 6 or 7, took a break and learned trumpet starting at junior high school. Got back to playing keys and writing music at the end of high school, and continued on and off through college, doing occasional online collaborations with online forums.

Played trumpet for over 10 years, though I've been on hiatus since moving away from Florida almost 10 years ago. I plan to get my trumpet back some day soon, and rebuild my techniques.

Guitar, I've been a couple years. I'm still very much a beginner, and still have a LOT to learn.
