Please tell me about your musical upbringing. At what age did you start playing music?
I started playing piano at age 7 and clarinet at age 10. I then picked up the saxophone in high school and went on to study music at Sonoma State University, where I indulged in classes ranging from Indian Classical Singing to Bach Choir, Jazz Improvisation to Javanese Gamelan, and Recording and Computer Music Production. I have always improvised with my music and enjoy the "mash-up" of different styles. For me, this keeps it fresh, while always remembering where the roots of where the music come from.
What types of music and what specific entertainment services do you provide?
I play saxophone, piano, clarinet, flute, and turntables. I play jazz, funk, soul, reggae, ska, latin, hip-hop, and so on… I provide everything from duo groups to full bands, and DJ with an eclectic taste. I am involved in every aspect of the music I represent. In other words, when you hire me for an event, that is who you get.
What five words would your colleagues use to best describe you?
Creative, Professional, Spontaneous, Energetic, and Driven
