When I was 12 years old, I woke up one day and the first thing that caught my eye was a transistor radio I had ripped apart the day before. I looked at the speaker, then at the 9v battery, and I suddenly realized what would happen if I touched them together. So I did, and POP, I entered the wondrous world of electronic audio.
Not long after that, I heard a Wendy Carlos record and Frank Zappa and ELP and I wanted a synthesizer, but the only way I could afford one was to build it myself. This led me on a journey that included several world tours as a keyboard tech (roadie) with recording artists and many years playing keyboards professionally in Classic Rock / Original bands, as well as a career in electronics. I returned to music some years back, writing and performing solo keyboards / vocals.

"There are simply two kinds of music, good music and the other kind ... the only yardstick by which the result should be judged is simply that of how it sounds. If it sounds good it's successful; if it doesn't it has failed." -Duke Ellington
