Yes, by day, I work in a cubicle. I am a father to a lovely little girl, writing, recording, releasing, performing my art of music, when possible. We can't all live the dream. We can do what we love when we can. When time, and life allow. Creating and sharing our passions, visions, dreams, hope, pain, frustrations, honesty, love...through sound, colors, shapes, ...expression, ..or silence.
Yes...I suppose that My music is my art. Not a hobby. My art. My passion. Painted as it comes out. Real, Raw, ..rich with emotion, imperfections, beauty, the colors of my soul, my heart, my mind, through the music that I create and the lyrics, those words that flow through me, improvical, written and beyond. My offering to anyone willing to listen to that which I deem as my own expressive content, inspired by Love, Life, Pain, Happiness, Passion, my flaws as a man, a singer, a musician, knowing that things could be better, worse, as I capture those ideas, feelings, moments, that some might deem to be a worthless effort, I deem to be worthwhile, because I am sharing my heart and soul within the works of my Audio Art.
My music is simple, complex, experimental, with folkish to slight hip hopish, indie, alt, electronic, soundtrackish influences and beyond. I am a romantic. I am against the grain. I don't believe that hit songs make an inspirational artist. My music is for everyone and anyone, if you decide to chance a listen, only you will know if it is for you, though, I wish to share it with you, so that you are inspired to think, to feel, to discover, ..me...a fellow human, a fellow spirit upon our Earth, with something to share, something to say, yesterday, tomorrow and today. Be inspired to do what you love even if you aren't in the top 40,...you are doing what you love, which puts you in the top 1.

strings/misc, along with Adobe 1.5 aka Cool Edit recording software, as my primary
recording program. 2 decent Condenser mics, my Alvarez acoustic, Casio Privia digital piano,
E-MU keyboard. Using what little I had to go a long way to express myself, my colors,
my love, my dreams, my imperfections, my beauty. That beauty beneath the beast I am.
The average, alive, beautiful, loving, imperfect man I am. Vulnerable, courageous, loquacious, vivid man I am. The beauty beneath my shell.
