At age eight, his parents purchased a trumpet and soon after, his first guitar which led to T.C's discovery of numerous other instruments. He became proficient with electric bass while performing Top 40, retro-pop and with classic rock bands. T.C's versatile yet powerful vocals range from ballads and hard rock to hip-hop and barbershop... marked experience which led to his fronting the all-original, Miami-based trio kNiption FiT ~ an enigmatic, power-pop band often described as "The Monkees meet Rush..."
With invitations to record in Europe, T.C met Joseph LaRossi, a prominent Swedish producer based in Stockholm. Following a series of song collaborations and performances with his return to the USA... T.C won Best Adult Contemporary in an international songwriting contest with his guitar ballad "I Pray (It's A Mistake!)"

Dub'ya!" continues to receive attention in cyberspace and the blogosphere... Alan Roy Scott, co-founder of Unisong wrote of T.C's musical spoof, "I was literally on the floor... in fact, the highest compliment I can offer as a veteran songwriter is to say how jealous I am... I wish I'd written this myself..."
