I could start by saying that music has been a huge part of my life since BEFORE I began taking piano lessons at the age of 5. I grew up as a "band geek" through school, working my way through every instrument in the band. (save the flute, and the saxophone). I read a book called "The life and times of Jimi Hendrix"
It changed my life. I took up guitar the next day @ age 15!


A few years after that I took a lesson from a friend of mine named DENNIS PEREZ. (one of the most genius musical minds of our time.)
....Ever since then I have been on a rock and roll roller coaster. Filled with excitement and emotion. I have played more projects than I can honestly count. Everything! PUNK ROCK,COUNTRY,JAZZ,BLUES,HARDCORE,CONTEMPORARY,CUMBIA,DEATH METAL... I really could go on. I have played with some of the greatest talent there is! I am not a name dropper, But man, I have been fortunate in this respect. I've played with EGOMANIAC JERKS.(haven't we all?) Humble geniuses. and musical Worshipers of GOD.

I read and write music fairly well. I have a "440 EAR". The biggest challenges I have faced have been essentially a lack of MARKETING experience. I once toured with a band 2 weeks after ever even hearing of them or their songs. I LEARNED... I TOURED... I CASHED THE CHECK!

I am currently the master bassist in a project called "TRAILER"
TRAILER are Southern California's Premier Cover band. As the "GO-TO" band for everything from A to Z, We have an arsenal of music from the 80's 90's and 2000's (With a little extra in either direction.) If you are looking to book an entire act/band Hit us up on Facebook!!! www.facebook.com/Trailersocal.

I LOVE all people. I believe that God put us all on the earth for his own reasons. Mine: is to play these strings as if they were an extension of me. They are.

Having an unusual relationship with the concept of stringed instruments, I took up the violin on a whim. I heard Boyd Tinsley play a solo and I HAD to get one. I entered the local music store and went into this sound booth. Thinking it was isolated, I played around for 2 or 3 minuets before
I saw a poster of BOYD TINSLY om the WALL! I imitated his posture and something instantly clicked. I am still learning, but this is the way I am. I have toured the States several times. STUDIOS, VIDEOS, SHOWCASES, CONVENTION CENTERS... I'm still trying to break through.

Being a natural comedian, there's no surprise that I would end up doing satirical folk songs! ('cause sometimes, Life is a joke!) BASS or Guitar, Violin or Piano: I just like to have an happy time making music. Making people happy, and enjoying life & LOVING PEACE!
I could go on. But I will spare you! lol!
