Started out as a project with a friend in 1993 writing Christian folk songs. As he moved onto his folk music, I began experimenting with different styles of music. I slowly got myself out of the acoustical folk phase, and went more technical, by incorporating synthesizers, and using various sound modules. Realizing that my strength is in the Rock genre, I expanded out and worked on my guitar skills. I am constantly changing my ideas about how I can improve my song writing.

It's been a couple years that I started to pick things up again since the birth of my daughter. An addition in my life really had brought new and fresh ideas musically. Inspirations are abound. More material to come very shortly.
