I’m a self-taught pianist and guitar player by trade. I started to learn piano 5 years by teaching myself to read and write music. Next thing I knew I had all these compositions and figured might as well take a shot in the dark. See what happens.

Title of latest release:
Prelude to a Nightmare

Who are your biggest musical influences?
Akira Yamaoka, Frederic Chopin, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Tony Iommi.

Are you signed to a label or are you independent?
Independent.

What have been the biggest challenges in your career?
Balancing all the music with the rest of life. Family. Work. Staying in shape.

How many songs or albums have you released to date?
One album and one single.

Can you tell us a few things about your latest release?
I wanted to try and smash together thrash metal with piano. It was a nightmare. So, I stripped it down and went for a messy, horror composition. I think succeeded.

Any plans for new music or upcoming projects we should know about?
My purpose is to create music I would like to hear. Something that thoughts, memories, and emotions in the listener.
