I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, but today I live in the Portland, Oregon area.

Most of my band experience came with an indie rock group called Tone Deaf Teens. This project consumed my life for about five years, and there was a lot of running around involved as we tried to convince people of our greatness. We released a 5-song EP, a 15-song album and played as many shows as we could.

Along the way, I started up a label called Crash the Luau Records, with the goal of exposing the world to Hawaii-based rock music. We signed two bands, learned a lot, and lost quite a bit of money.

After moving to the mainland, I started a new band called Upper80, played a few shows and put out a small 4-song CD. Burnout and new time constraints then pushed me out of the band scene and into the garage, where I started working on home recordings of solo material. So after about 15 years of wandering through the music business forest, that’s where things stand at this point.
