I am a native Southern Californian born and raise the greater part of my life in Orange County, CA
I have been blessed with the opportunity to have performed, recorded, & shared the stage with some of the JAZZ GIANTS like: Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Ray Brown, George Bohannon, Alex Acuna, Abraham Laboriel, Paul Jackson Jr, Kirk Whalum, & Bruce Forman. By far the best of all has been the honor of leading worship for my King with some of our MODERN WORSHIP INNOVATORS like: Paul Baloche, Scott Reed, Leann Albrecht, Cheri Keaggy, and Bryan Duncan.
My Berklee College of Music education has allowed me to get comfortable on several different instruments; piano, vocals, saxophones, bassoon, ewi (Electronic Wind Instrument), keys, organ, guitar, bass and drums etc... My musical expression has been cultivated from a love of jazz and the fusion of latin, rock, R&B, and gospel. I have worked with groups of all sizes and am equally comfortable with a trio as I am writing and arranging for a full orchestra.
I am happily married to the love of my life (Lisa) for 16+ years and have a great son (David) who is now pursuing his own journey of life. I run my own business along with spending time with my family and in ministry, I am truly a very blessed man and I can't complain.
