My music Origin Story:

Music has been a part of my life since the day I was born. When I was little, I would put on concerts for my family with a toy guitar. 

After finishing high school I traveled north to Boston, MA and studied with some of the best musicians in the country, including John Mayers own guitar teacher, Tomo Fujito and James Taylor's brother Livingston. After graduating, I began playing full time up and down the east coast, performing with different bands and as a soloist from Key West to New York. I shared the stage with everyone from 80s rockers to internationally awarded acoustic guitarists. 

 Since moving out here to the West Coast, I've been performing for elite company events, private celebrity parties and weddings. 



Real talk:

When I'm not performing or working on my craft, I'm probably watching movies or listening to film scores. I'm a huge movie buff and have been since I was in my early teens. 80's and 90's are probably my favorite decades to watch and I love the movies that invoke the nostalgia of my early years. Princess Bride, Hook, Dead Poets Society, Back to the Future and Ninja Turtles - all classic staples of my cinematic upbringing. 

I love coffee, Korean BBQ, the beach, podcasts and occaionally binge-watching a new Netflix series. In my spare time I'm an amatuer boxer and every now and then I do some acting on various small film and TV projects. I'm also an original artist and often write and record my own music in my home studio. You can listen to it here.

If you have an upcoming event and would like some great music, I'd love to be a part of it.
