My musical journey all started back when I was 12 years old and I first listened to The Beatles “The White Album.” This album deeply moved me, as it did for so many others. As I grew older, bands like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Ozzy, The Cure, Depeche Mode, U2, New Order, Thompson Twins, Bauhaus, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Moby, Cocteau Twins, etc., made me realize how much music was a part of my life and soul. In college, I started making mix tapes (both audio and videotape compilations) of different songs from bands to play at parties. This eventually led me into creating concert themes and promoting numerous bands at several nightclubs in Santa Barbara while attending UCSB. I greatly enjoyed choosing which bands to book, creating flyers, and making sure none of the bands cancelled! After college, I lived in Los Angeles for several years and eventually moved back to Carmel, Ca. where I had grown up for much of my life. One day, I just happened to sit down at the Steinway Grand Piano that had been at my parent’s house for so long, and I began to play. Even that first day, I knew that I had found my true musical path to follow. Writing music greatly inspired me, and allowed me to express emotionally everything that I was unable to before. The piano sessions eventually motivated me to purchase musical instruments as tools of the trade. Most of my music is Instrumental, although I do have several songs that have vocals and lyrics. I am interested in working with an established and talented singer someday when the opportunity arises. The music I write is intended to cause emotional responses from the listener. Our world today is unfortunately in turmoil and my music is a way that I personally release some of this tension. Therefore, the songs are often heavily melodic and rhythmic in nature. Also, the music I write is largely layered with many different soundscapes utilized. So sit back and relax, or go for a cruise, and make sure you turn it up!
