ABOUT

I love playing and writing music and would love to get together with other music fans to jam, experiment and record. I love progressive rock and other music that is strange, creative and beautiful. I do feel I have a talent for creating interesting music and feel that with the right collaborators (whether you write as well or just play well) we can make something special.

I have been playing music most of my life, but my abilities are mixed. I played the French horn from Junior High through one year of college, and then recently in the Utah Valley Symphony. I can also play the trumpet and a bit of trombone. In a band setting my preference is keyboard. I started piano lessons as a kid but didn't last long. As an adult I taught myself to play and recently have gotten very serious, even taking lessons. I'm rapidly improving, and in some ways am very good, but I'm no virtuoso...yet! I currently practice daily. I've also spent some time on drums and recorder.

I sang in choir in High School (in the main one as well as the advanced, smaller performing group). My voice is probably a mix between John Denver, 80's Geddy Lee and Freddy Mercury, but maybe I'm fooling myself.
