ABOUT

Looking for talented singer/songwriters/vocalists/bands!! If that's you, feel free to message me!! I would like to have a vocalist I can collaborate with, or a band to play or write with. I am interested in writing music and as well as playing covers. Aside from my personal musical influences listed down at the bottom, I am fairly versatile and willing to accommodate a diverse range of instrumentalists and vocalists.

I have been playing piano since I was 6.
Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, and University of North Texas graduate where I studied IT and organ. I enjoy playing keyboards and composing film scores.
