I am a recording artist and songwriter. I play guitar, ukulele, saxophone, mandolin, piano and I sing. I am currently recording my debut; solo album entitled “Sweet Destiny”.
My wife is my greatest muse and inspiration. We have been together for 11 years now, and she has inspired most, (if not all) of the love songs I have ever written. In fact, she is a brilliant singer who is featured on my album in a duet we sing together called “Fire & Ice”, and is my main back up vocalist. Her love and belief in me is what motivates me to keep following my dreams.
At first, when I write a song, the content and message is the most important part. Then when I begin recording, the process and journey of the song becomes the most important part.
Since I started educating & directing I have found inspiration through my students. Their sincere passion & love of music and the arts has helped me to embrace who I am as an artist. Working with them has pushed me to hone and understand my craft to the best of my ability in order to provide them with the best education I can offer.
When do you get your best ideas?
A pencil, paper, ukulele, guitar, and piano.
Like an always aging Primitivo.
I love to hike, run, go on long walks with my wife & 2 dogs. Travel, garden, cook. Solve all the world’s problems with my friends and family.
When I began this journey back in 2001, I dove in head first. I didn’t worry where I was headed or how I would get there. I just had faith.
