My musical journey began at the age of 5 when I started taking piano lessons. I was inspired by my father who continues to play today and works as a piano technician. My musical influences mainly come from the 70s with artists like Elton John, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, Chicago, and Stevie Wonder. I've been songwriting and producing since I was about 15 years old.
To this date, I've written and recorded around 30 songs. Most recently, my debut original solo album Apple Trees has 11 songs, all written and recorded by myself.
My biggest musical accomplishment to date is graduating the College of Saint Rose with a degree in Music Education. In my time there, I wrote and produced an original album for my first band, Hitrick and Brooks, as well as having my orchestral piece "Generation of Hope" and jazz chart "Seven Ate a Gm9" performed by the symphony orchestra and jazz ensemble.
I am a 7-12 Music Teacher at the Broadalbin-Perth Central School District teaching chorus, songwriting and production, theory, and piano. I also currently play in the Capital District’s premier party band Funk Evolution as a keyboardist and occasional vocalist.
