I have been playing piano since the age of 3 - taking lessons from the age of 6. I started to attend the local college for piano lessons at the age of 8. My piano teacher taught in the romantic classical style, and taught me to make music - not just notes. My style and technique come directly from his influence. At the age of 13, I started to perform on occasion with the local symphony. Our family moved to various parts of the world, where I was able to perform with various musical groups. I attended Interlochen in the summers. Through the years, I have performed many places, from Nashville, Boston, New York, etc... I have performed many live concerts in various parts of the US with southern rock, country, and new age piano. I am also a BMI associated songwriter.
