Welcome to my Website!

At the top of this page is a menu with my bio, music, videos and contact information. Please feel free to explore and learn more about my music! 

What's new with me? Kia Ora! I'm back from New Zealand! 

At the beginning of this month, I won the Toyota Sponsored "Feeling the Street" busking contest thanks to your vote! :-)  I toured New Zealand in a Global Street Band made of 5 other musicians from Belgium, Poland, Spain, Colombia, and America. The trip was 8 days long beginning in Auckland and ending with our performance at the Queenstown Winter Festival in the south island.  The weather was very cold and it was strange to see snow in June!

Each day, the band jammed together in various locations across the country. In addition to playing in Queenstown, we played at a studio in Auckland, at vineyard on Weiheke Island, and at a Maori Village and went on various outdoor adventures in a helicopter and jet boat. I even convinced myself to go bungee jumping! The trip was documented the whole way and you can watch what we did each day on YouTube or by visiting feelingthestreet.com

Again I really can't thank you all enough for your help with this contest. It's my dream to travel the world doing music and YOU made it possible. So thank you! And thanks Toyota and Feeling the Street! 

 



The Beat Buddy Guitar Pedal has released the video I made for them on Youtube! The Beat Buddy is a Drum Machine Pedal I use for songwriting, and practicing guitar. I basically can control the drum beat as I play a song. Check out the video for more info. This video is also featured on the Beat Buddy Website at http://mybeatbuddy.com/
 
This year I have also been playing at a lot of flea markets and farmer's markets in LA including the Melrose Trading Post, Altadena Farmer's Market, and So Cal Etsy Guild and I have caught the attention of an online magazine called Roots Revival Co! The magazine features small businesses, artists, musicians, and handmade crafts! With that said, I have an idea to start a blog on my website about my experience street performing. It will include info about where to busk, how to set up, what to bring, what songs to play, and what gear to buy!
