I started playing piano when I was 4 because my older brother played and I wanted to do whatever he did.
I won a bunch of classical competitions but didn’t really get into music until I joined my high school jazz band. More than the actual genre of jazz, it was the freedom of improvisation that I couldn’t get enough of.
I studied jazz and classical piano at Arizona State University and took a bunch of lessons with some amazing pianists like Fred Hersch, Kenny Werner and Uri Caine.
I worked as a full time gigging jazz musician for a long time but I don’t think I found my true calling until moving to Japan. A month after I moved to Japan I lucked into my first job arranging 15 songs for a solo piano album. The CD sold over 10,000 copies and more arranging projects came my way. Over a few year period I came to realize that arranging, composing and teaching was my true calling so I quit playing random jazz gigs and dedicated my time to those three things.
I released my own CD’s on several labels in Japan including Colombia and Universal Records. Although, the opportunity was great for my artistic development I didn’t agree with their sales approach so I formed my own label and publishing company in 2017 so I could do things my way.
It has taken me a while to figure out what I want to do but I am having a blast arranging all kinds of different songs, making videos, releasing sheet music books etc.
