First, I want to say thank you for visiting. I've written a short bio here so you can know a little about where I started and where I am now.
I started my journey in music at an early age, first picking up a trumpet over 20 years ago at age 11. At age 13, inspired by the music from the video games I played, I first tried my hand at composing. I began learning the guitar at age 15, and first gave serious thought to singing around the same time.
I’ve always liked creating moods and images with my music. I want my music to help you understand where you are in the scene or how you should feel. I try to do that in innovative ways, by using ethnic instruments or unconventional musical structures, and by putting my own original touch on each work.
More than anything, I just like to create music that interests the listener. After all, what good is a great song if no one’s listening?
Lastly, I remind myself every day to be grateful for the opportunities I have had and for the small successes I have achieved, and try to remain humble as much as I can. If we've worked together in the past, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. If you're thinking of working with me now, I want you to know that I'll be committed to creating something unique for you that you really love, and I won't stop working on it until you do.
