I began my music journey by studying piano at the age of eight. It gave me a foundation that spawned a lifetime of musical interest. My next door neighbor loaned me an acoustic guitar and I was hooked.
Age 11 , my parents bought me my first electric guitar, a Vox Lynx. I thought it looked cool but it sounded awful. My first real audition (age 15) was for Lowell Fulsom's band at a bar in Venice California. (The Roma) I was so scared because I wasn't ready for a professional gig but the process was beneficial and it really motivated me to study and practice.
