Music is my vocation, my life’s passion — if it in any way defines me as a person, I cannot think of a better way to identify myself. From Carnegie Hall and live on SNL, to recording sessions in a DIY Bushwick studio, I've seen it all. Born & raised in NYC, I am a dedicated musician in the city scene. I would love a chance to prove it to you.
