ABOUT

I'm a creative guy, the music flows from various experiences but is most often entirely spontaneous. Catch me on a good day and you've got a hit on your hands in 5 minutes. I've played music formally (woodwinds and percussion) since the 5th grade, and have played guitar (both acoustic and electric) in a less classically trained manner for almost 20 years. I was previously a founding member of the Hawaiian alt rock band THE WHITE JACKET, opening for the likes of Chevelle, AFI and Avenged Sevenfold at The Republik and The Blaisdell Arena. Looking to elevate an all-new and all-original hard rock project to similar heights (and ideally beyond), and have already written a debut album's worth of original tunes with a second guitarist, drummer and bassist! Just need a front man to bring it all together!
