Started playing piano at the age of 5 and classically trained from then on. I moved to theater organ when I was around 12 years old and started giving music lessons when I was 13. During that period I played various benefits and pipe organ for a local church. Had a few "bands" throughout high school years and garnered a couple of scholarships for music in college. Joined the Navy instead of taking the scholarships - I was young, what can I say! I've worked at A&M Studios and other local studios throughout my career and still write and play on a regular basis.
