My forte is creating music, music in different genres Pop ballads, Instrumentals, Classical, Contemporary Christian, and Jazz, Musical Influences: Duke Ellington, Stevie wonder, George Gershwin, Fredrick Chopin, George Benson, Michael McDonald

I play paid and open mic gigs to get exposure and feed back and work on my live performance. Response is very positive from musicians, arrangers and sound engineers. I perform songs which are touching to upbeat with personally empowering themes ranging from family, physics, love, homelessness and charity.

Having some musical pedigree my mother and father both played instruments and my father had quite the ear for jazz. My uncle, the late Carl Smith, has several popular and enduring works to his credit such as ?Rescue Me? Performed by Fontella Bass, ?Higher and Higher" Performed by Jackie Wilson, and "In the Basement" Performed by Etta James all of which are still played today and used in commercial and movie applications.
