I have been playing music my whole life. I began songwriting at a very young age, almost quite by accident. Before I knew it, piano lessons and singing in school and church choirs occupied much of my time. Over the years I have had the privilege to study, rehearse and perform in many different musical environments with the most amazing musicians on earth.
My studio recording experience began at 16 with my first trio (debut on guitar). My first road gig, at 17, in New Orleans as guitarist for The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod's national youth gathering jazz band, performing for over 32 thousand attendees. As a freelance musician. I enjoy working on concerts and projects with all sorts of singers and songwriters. I also perform regularly in musical theatre orchestras and have composed for film and television.
I am a member of The American Federation of Musicians (AFM) Local 47 chapter. Thanks to my family and friends that help, support and guide my path in life, heath and career...my work is dedicated to all of the wonderful musicians and teachers that gave me so much inspiration.
