I fell in love with music when I heard The Beatles for the very first time. I knew right then that I would do whatever I could to be in music.
My band was the High School band. I recorded my first tracks in a studio at 16. I played any instrument I could find... piano, trumpet, drums, violin, but it was guitar... lead guitar that captured my heart. (Eric Clapton, George Harrison and then Doc Watson were my idols). I lived in Madison, Wisconsin for a few years, where I fell in love with country, folk and bluegrass. I played as much as I could.
Back home in LA, I found a music production company that took me in. I knew if I could get one foot in the door, I could make something happen. I took that opportunity, and ran with it. There, I started what would be a 28 year career writing and producing music for television. I am proud to be an Emmy Winner, and grateful I gave myself that chance.
For the last 5 years, I've gone back to playing out... anywhere I can. I play with a host of great friends.
For me music is about giving. Giving to yourself first, and then anyone who will listen. It's about reflection, joy and sharing emotion.
