Feeling a bit camera shy


I would describe my music as adult/contemporary with some blues influence. My songs are easy on the ears and are definitely fun to play.

I have been an active musician for over 20 years, performing in clubs such as the Coach House and Galaxy theatres in Orange County, CA, and Jack's Sugar Shack, the Whiskey Agogo, and others in Los Angeles. Formerly with the band Shook Up World, I am now composing and doing local performances in the Portland, Oregon area and looking to get a record contract or publishing deal.

In the early years I absorbed every lesson I could from friends, family, and favorite cassette tapes, and began singing and playing in Rock and Latin bands in high school. As things progressed, I developed a liking to the blues, looking up to players like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton.

In 1993, I helped form Shook Up World, where I got much of the performing experience in the larger clubs mentioned above. The band got the opportunity to record a CD, You Are Here, at Clear Lake Audio in Burbank, CA, and mixed the project at Paramount Recording Studios. The project was a local success, selling around 1,000 copies, and was featured on a KLOS local spotlight. Unfortunately it never go the follow up it deserved.

After several years of compiling more songs and refining my talent, I recorded a solo project in 2002 called Stories. Currently I continue to compose and record new material, both solo and in collaboration with others.
