My father had a music business, so needless to say I grew up with music all around me. I started playing piano at the age of five and expanded to other assorted instruments, but the guitar was the instrument I connected with the most. Although I do perform occasionally, writing music is my passion. My music is been played around the world on FM and internet radio, and am signed to several publishers and producers. I hope you enjoy my work and perform it as well.
