I am a San Diego native. I was exposed to art and music in my household from an early age. This art/music exposure ignited in me, through endless work and practice, the ability to write lyrics as well as MC. My close high school friends and I ended up forming and collaborating on the Cheapskates band album Ride, which was produced in part by Willie Waldman. It is through Willie’s faith in me and the recognition of my hard work and talent that lead me to join his tour with The Willie Waldman Project. Other well know collaborators on the album are Tony Austin-Drums (Carlos Santana, Gwen Stephanie, Eryka Badu), Jake Cinninger- Keys/Guitar (Umphrey’s McGee), Eden Perkins-Guitar, Willie Waldman-Trumpet and of course my friends Kaitlyn, Brendan, Diego, Domenic and Alana. We were blessed to have grammy award winner Lance Pierre (Snoop Dog, Eminem) on board as our engineer as well as John Avila (Oingo Boingo). Skip Saylor (Beyonce) played a key role in the engineering as well. Since the completion of the album I have had the good fortune to be able to work on my solo career and tour under the wing of some of music’s finest musicians.
