About
Hey! I trained in music theory/ comp at Arts Magnet HS in Dallas and now live in the LA area. Been playing keys since the early 80s. I write tons of background tracks and melodies along with playing keys live and on recordings. Mostly pop music. I have many many song ideas sketched out as initial compositions/recordings. Some with melodies but many ready for someone to get creative with. I LOVE the collaboration process and the idea of teamwork! I'm not a lyricist at all so am stoked to collaborate using some of my existing ideas or brand new ones. I have a small studio to cut tracks in.
