I am a "Musician on a Mission"
. I am a self-taught pianist from Cleveland, OH. I am constantly learning how to improve my skillset as a solo contemporary artist. I also enjoy meeting new people that have an appreciation for my style of music.
I started practicing in my teenage years; learning how to play simple tunes that I've heard from different television shows, movies, and video games. They were the fundamental stepping stones in my musical development. I grew up enjoying masterpieces from classical composers such as Johannes Brahms and Antonín Dvořák, as well as contemporary jazz artists, Brian Culbertson, Gerald Albright, and Kenny G. With every opportunity, I would sit at my grandmother's old upright piano and try to play along to the songs that came from the radio, foregoing the traditional piano lessons. In high school, I never passed 'Intro to Piano' due to my inability to read music; despite my ability to play recognized notes by ear. Since then, I continue to practice on my own, and diligently compose new music.
