I was born and raised in the Bay Area, California. I have been writing songs since I was two but was gravitated towards sports and played through High School and some of college. When I turned 19, I taught myself guitar so I could play the songs I hear in my head. It works to some extent.
I was asked to sing in a blues band at 19 and learned how to improvise on the spot. I would make up 2 to three songs a night because we usually ran out of material. This was a huge learning experience for me and I found that the more relaxed I am the better I can improvise. My place belongs on stage although I am getting to understand how to record. At this moment I record all of my music on my ipad. I play at charity events and some of our local festivals. I write in many different genres and find that most fall into the Indie/pop/blues however I have many childrens songs and some dance pop.
I have played music with blues artists, John Christly, drummer Randy Hayes, Chris Cain and many others.
