ABOUT

I'm a musician living in the west valley. I've been musically inclined since around age 6 or 7 (that was so long ago, I can't really remember). I got my start on bass but migrated around to learn as many other instruments as I could get my hands on. I'm a graduate of The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences and have used that education to jump start my own abilities to record and record well. I've been in bands here and there but thrive in adventurous and creative project situations (currently working on a long distance project with my brother who resides in LA).

I have a job, a car, enough gear to get the job done, and enough creativity to improvise with what I have when the desired solution is lacking.

Influences

You know those people who, when asked what they listen to, always say "Everything" but then quickly amend that statement to say "Well, everything except Rap and Country" only to have their eyes glaze over when you bring up really good music because they haven't got a clue who you're talking about? Yeah, I'm NOT that guy. I really do listen to everything. I'll give anything and everything a chance and can appreciate every form of music for what it can offer to my own taste. But from the roots? Here it is.

I grew up listening to Yes, Kansas, Genesis, Dream Theater, Kevin Gilbert, Marillion, It Bites, Depeche Mode, A-Ha, Duran Duran, Prince, Just about anything from the 80's, and later found NIN, Evenescence, Spiralling, Maroon 5, blah blah blah blah (this list could get long, but I won't bore you)
