I was born one of seven children in Martinez raised in Richmond California just north of San Francisco. Growing up I always knew that singing would be a part of my life, gospels and spirituals paved
that road. I'm a self taught guitar player along with several different rhythm instruments. As a teenager I sung along whenever R&B or soul music was playing. Eventually I began to take
singing more serious and started taking professional lessons, mainly from opera singers, because there technic made more sense to me. In the 70s I was stationed in Germany as a member of the US
Army, after completing my overseas duty I devoted most of my time studying to successfully become a Music Therapist, but my passion for music never left me always present demanding my undivided
attention. With my individual style of guitar playing I began composing and writing my own music. Continuously I have refined my talent with professional singing lessons and of course simply
performing wherever I can...
