Who I Am

BIO

I am a self-professed, life long musician. A producer / arranger / engineer / keyboard player who has been involved in the recording industry in Hawaiʻi since the early 80's. One of the first in Hawaiʻi to use computers to enhance music production. I have always tried to keep myself on the cutting edge of technology.

I am of German Hawaiian ancestry with a sliver of Chinese thrown in. Born and raised in Kailua, on the windward side of Oʻahu, I started performing at the age of 17 and never looked back.The last 15 years I've been working out of my home studio and performing (less frequently) at night.

Currently I'm involved with producing my own musical journeys and helping friends realize theirs.
