ABOUT

I went to Berklee College of Music for drums. I have played in rock, funk, hip-hop and reggae bands. Lately I have been writing music and performing on guitar and singing in my alternative folk band called Dreamaholic. I am working on producing our album this spring and summer. I have produced a lot of electronic music over the years, available on my . I love writing and arranging or having a role in that if needed. I have become pretty adaptable to getting involved in many genres. I consider myself a jack of all trades but I focus on what seems most important and relevant at the time. I have quit the day jobs to pursue music on the next level. Proper pay is important. Chaka Kahn and I share a birthday so yea I'm legit.
