Extended Bio

(March 15, 1986 -- )
Born and raised in Walla Walla, WA, USA.

I work with MIDI, DXi, VST, loops and sound effects, using Cakewalk Home Studio 2. I've actually been learning about and toying with MIDI since I was 10 years old or so, but I figure that my real music creation interest began my freshman year of high school. From there, my skill and knowledge base has grown, and hopefully it will never stop doing so from here on.

Most of my musical background comes from my parents. My father is an organist and pianist (and very recently picked up bass), and my mother is a violin teacher in the Suzuki String Program. I grew up on classical music, fiddle tunes, video games, and "Weird Al" Yankovic.

Most of the songs I write and arrange are instrumental, but when writing songs with lyrics, I try to lean toward anything that will make people smile. My lyrics tend to be very wordy and involved, often leaning towards ballad-like storytelling - likely a trait picked up from the fiddle tunes and Weird Al.

Lyrically, I tend to write for a younger audience, and my music can apply anywhere from kindergaten (If I Were A Butterfly) to adolescence (Always Taken) to young adulthood (Old Joe Clark).

I also have quite a bit of stage experience, both singing and playing keyboard as a melody/rhythm piano. Most of the experience comes from playing in a Christian band at local venues, as well as youth events close to town.
