I see the music I make as a bit of light in the darkness. Much like this lonely fragile planet spins alone through the vastness of space, my music serves as a similar sanctuary for myself and for those that choose to use it as such.

As soon as I learned how to bang out some simple riffs on my first electric guitar, I was writing and recording my own songs. Borrowing my guitar teachers Tascam 4 track cassette recorder, I self-produced and wrote a full-length album for one of my first bands at the age of 17.  Ever since then it’s always been this process of musical creation that motivates me to work on my music every day. I’ve now written, recorded and released over ten albums worth of material.

My journey as an artist has allowed me to create a catalog of music that represents self-introspection and reflection while at the same time bringing along all others that have chosen to tether themselves to me and to my music. I find the time I spend searching for my own voice in a world that does nothing but drown out and erase most self-expression; the most important work I can undergo.

It certainly takes a village to propel the music out into the world and while this creative path I endure may be an isolating one; I still depend on anyone and everyone that has an interest in my music to help it be heard. To everyone that has ever helped by passing along my name or a CD or a link to a song; I thank you for your help, love and support. Without this interaction it would not be worth sharing my music and all that I have discovered about myself and the world.
