I have a been gigging since 2008 or 2009 where I started out at Borders in Davis, California. From there I played for the Stockton Art Walk. I got some gigs through Sonicbids-Sue's Coffee Roasting in Gilroy and later RAWartist. I was on internet radio on Spritco1 for a vocal. I was a semi-finalist in the Apple Beam Songwriting Contest. I have gotten two gigs with RAWArtist Sacramento and I have performed in Anaheim at the Farmers Market, near Disneyland for the last two years in a row. I am still songwriting four years later. I joined a community band to keep my skills up year round. I was recruited for a church band last year. I was in my first band over fifteen years ago. I collaborated with Kellie Rivers for a song I wrote for Earth Day. It can be seen here, I believe.

I completed the online Songwriting Class through Coursera with Pat Pattison in 2015. I have written two scores. Although a lot of work I am pleased with the second one. It will be re-released in a year or two.

I am preparing my final CD. I started song writing in response to a request to play at my father's church. I have been writing ever since. I write when the spirit move me and I share it with the world when it's above average as a composition. Stay tuned!
