I grew up in Hawaii and always thought and dreamed in sound, rhythm, and beats. I uncovered my passion for music during a live performance playing the ukulele at a luau with my Dad at age eight. People started throwing money and I ran off the stage. My Dad called me back on stage and said take the money, it's yours! I got hooked.
The street beats of Oakland, CA where we lived for a few years influenced my taste in music. After serving in the Navy during the Vietnam War, I went back home to Hawaii and got my Music Degree at Leeward Community College. I love collaborating with other Artists and experimenting with different genres of music.
I find inspiration all around me. I try to make my music representative of myself and my generation. Sometimes the lyrics and music to songs are whispered in my ear while I'm asleep.
