Trying to find interesting musicians in my area to collaborate with and create thoughtful, challenging original music for fun. I've been playing for most of my life, but it's been a long time since I performed.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music has been a key to my life as long as I can remember. It's an outlet for my creativity, a place to channel emotions and ideas, a vehicle to express myself and a way to touch other people.

What is your music dream?

For so many years, I felt I had something to say with my music and the time to get it out for people to hear. I spent years doing free improvisation on the piano, but so few people ever heard it. Now, I know my time is limited and I find myself frustrated that I have so little tangible evidence of what I did. I dream of finding like minded person(s) to help me get things recorded, get them out there so I can share them with others.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Teaching people to reason.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Maybe the first time I heard Tarkus from ELP. That opened the door to so much other great music and made me realize there was a place for original, creative, challenging music.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Gentle Giant- such an underrated group! ELP, Genesis (Peter Gabriel years), Weather Report, Keith Jarrett, Oscar Peterson

What inspires you to make music?

Personal Growth

What is the message you want to send with your music?

To challenge people to think, to listen, to learn.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?


How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

More opportunities than ever to be heard, but it seems as if it's probably more difficult to earn a living at it.

What do you think of Drooble?

Just signed up, not sure yet.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The difficulty of finding others to play with

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I attend shows of bands I like and support them through ticket and merch sales.
