I started playing congas while serving in the military overseas in the late 70s. I played with several local bands, playing a mix of R&B Funk and jazz standards, plus some original material. I co-composed, composed, produced and arranged a lot of our original material. Even though I am a percussionist, I composed all parts for the entire band.
After leaving the military in the early 80s, my passion turned toward being a family man. After raising children, my passion turned back to composing music.
Dreams of success came back into my life in 2001 and by 2007; I enjoyed some moderate success with an instrumental track I composed called, “Kicking IT”, was used by “EXTRA, THE ENTERTAINMENT MAGAZINE” in NOVEMBER 2007.
I continue to pursue my passion of composing and arranging music....
