ABOUT

Currently singing and performing with Sacramento's premiere Beatles tribute band, TicketToRide Electric, I provide the Mellotron, piano and other keyboard parts that are so essential to the Beatles sweeping orchestral sound, occasionally switching to acoustic guitar as needed.

Although based in the Sacramento Valley, I have played all over Northern California & the South Bay Area.

I also write, record and produce original compositions, usually performing all the instruments myself, three of which are shared here. I have contributed original music to the films "Charmed & Dangerous" (1999) and "Binding Tale" (2016). A full length album of original music is currently in production
