I followed my dream to one day play music that moves peoples heart every time I pick up my saxophone. I write my lyrics and music and produce my songs with 2 of best studio guys in the Maryland / Washington DC area, Mr. Matthew Shell & Ernesto Ponce.
I find inspiration all around me. I try to make my music representative of myself and my generation. I love to play in places where the audience is right up close on the stage and they can really feel the passion and love that I play with.
My music comes from the center of my heart, I pull from a life long experiences some happy and some very sad, but we all know this what 'Living Your Life Everyday is all about' If I touch someones heart with my music, than all hours of practicing have not been in vail
