My love for music and performing has been with me my whole life. My first outlet was one of those handheld tape-recorders with the built in mic. It was from another era and built like a tank. I recorded my first song on it. It was this cheesy pop number about a girl sung acapella, I couldn't play any instruments.

I put together my first band at age 12. I learned basic guitar and I talked all my friends into picking up instruments. A couple of them even stuck with it. I destroyed my parent's stereo learning to cable up my first P.A. for recording but I learned enough to run sound at the school talent show. We headlined.

I played my first paying gig at age 14 with my highschool band. We recorded and self-produced a couple of EP's, a song for compilation, and a full-length in that time. We headlined the local rock bars, played regionally, had a good following, and learned a lot.

I moved to Miami for a short period for school. I took weekly vocal instruction and sang with a University chorale and the Miami master's chorale. I wrote and performed acoustic songs that won a couple of campus competitions and played for campus festivals.

I moved back to Texas and in my earnest to find or form a band I actually formed one band and joined another basically simultaneously, both as lead singer. During this time I played a lot of shows in the San Antonio and Austin, TX areas. Between the two bands I wrote and laid down vocals for three (3) five-song or more EPs and one full-length album. I was also writing and performing acoustic sets with a friend at coffee houses and wine-bars. There was an EP recorded for that project as well but never pressed or released. These projects did moderately well in the region but eventually smothered themselves out.

My most recent full group of uptempo indie-rockers, Valletta, was the most talented but technically got the least done. Shows were played and well-received but touring on large scale was never achieved.

So, what am I doing here?

I'm 23 now and I've spent the past nine (9) months learning piano, taking vocal lessons, and honing skills in song-writing and computer production. I want to meet and work with a band/group/production whatever you might call it that has the talent and drive to be successful with their music. I am fully prepared, on my part, to make whatever effort and sacrifice necessary in my life to contribute to this.

In addition to that, I'm a pretty nice guy and in general play well with others.
