I picked up my first guitar in 1999, and i sucked at it. I could first keep a rhythm at table tapping, beating on a surface with pen, pencil, or anything that fit in my hand. Fast forward, 2003, I was at a house party and found they a piano not being used and asked if I could play with it. I played a little tune and people asked if knew how to play? My response "no, but I can put together patterns." the same year I was introduced to Fruity Loops and opened up to what could barely be called production, I would probably call it semi-constructed-noise-making, but the foundation is started. Fast forward to 2008, I start getting more into beat making on the rap side of music. It was what ever I was feeling at the time I started the session. Produced music, recorded tracks with a few friends, but nothing to serious. Life goes on, gotta go to work, artist friends all have families, trying to maintain my own family. Until recently when afriend of mine brings music making back into my life.

My music sounds like what mood or feeling I was experiencing at the time. Some can be upbeat, sad, "gangster". It depends who I am working with and what I am trying to accomplish at the time. Guess it could be under the hip-hop or rap catagory.
I work full time, provide for my family, spend time with my wife and daughter.
