Biography

I grew up listening to good music, both of my parents are lifelong musicians and have always enjoyed good quality and artistic music. I used to listen to bands like Chicago and America on the record player while I played legos in the living room floor. I loved playing with the records, looking at the sleeves and changing the albums.

At the age of 3 after watching Superman I drew a crude drawing of him flying around the world. Everyone was very supportive and I got lots of praise for it. I think I made a mental note that day of this because I really enjoyed the attention. I was not deprived but the extra support I got from flaring my artistic talent made me very happy. I began analyzing my surroundings to make more drawings. I honed my skills over the years getting better and better at both imagining things and passing them from my mind onto paper.

All through my life there was music playing in the background. I was around it most of the day, almost always quality music too, my parents were very into progressive jazz/rock, R&B and classic rock. My mother played the piano daily while I played in my room, my father played the guitar often when he got off work. I was immersed in it at all times. My grandfather and possibly my greatest influence was a connoisseur of classic music and literally had it playing 24/7 at his home and in all areas of his home.

I related with my grandfather in a peculiar way, I feel he was in many ways always both my greatest adversary and greatest ally. I realize now he was never my enemy but rather extremely critical of me because he wanted the best out of me. I fed off his approval and in the 6th grade that desire for his affection drove me into school orchestra.
