I've been writing songs since the age of 12.
Throughout the years I have always worked on a balance between
writing music and performing as a musician.
After backing up other artists for most of my life I decided it was time
to be the front man. In 2007 I wrote, recorded, produced, performed and mixed my first solo album: All Of My Life. Now, I am very excited about the release of my second album: Every Single Day in March of 2012
I had a little more help from some amazing friends such as
Jamila Ford, Dave Pearlman, Jennifer Quiroz, Ronan Chris Murphy and Stephanie Villa
and I am sure you'll love it :) I have placed some of my songs in Film and TV and have been awarded the 2008 and 2009 ASCAPlus Pop Award as well as receiving honorable mentioning for the 2011Billboard International Songwriting Competition for my song Everything Else Came Through.
I am spending more and more time producing and mixing for fellow songwriters
and still love to backup artists as a drummer.
Mixing and Producing Records in LA
Playing Drums for Xian and The Infidels
Teaching Audio Restoration at Recording Bootcamp
and of course writing songs...
