This Dallas based songwriter/pianist started playing piano at 11 years old and has been improving his gift over the years to create a distinctive relaxing style of music. He has written music for a couple of Leisa Hart's fitness videos, performed at the Liquid Lounge, Opening Bell Coffee, Pacific College, House of Blues Dallas, Chocolate Secrets Wine Bar, and DeSoto Sol Jazz Festival. People were telling him that they could listen to his music without any vocals added. With that knowledge and encouragement, he decided to release his debut album Love > Fear in April 2012. People that influenced him include Quincy Jones, Kenny G, Brian McKnight, and Jim Brickman. His live stage performance is filled with deep emotion and captivates the audience with his intense expression of being lost in the music. His music allows the listener to create their own story within each song. That my friend is truly a GIFT!
