Piano | Vocals
Most know me as a professional musician, piano player and singer (DJ, too) but that is only a part of who I am.
When I'm not on-stage entertaining, I am spending time with my family which includes my 11-year-old son, Boe. We love roller coasters, and fishing.
I'm an avid songwriter, with dozens of published songs.
I am truly a 'people person' and genuinely love to spread joy through music.
I love to be challenged professionally and push myself to be the best human I can be.
