Loved my transistor radio at 10; wore out the 8-track in my VW beetle in college. Built my massive music collection from years working in record stores - Peaches Records in WPB and Tower Records in NYC. Enjoyed playing parties and restaurants on the side. Believe that music generates creativity and that musical inspiration creates more music. Love mixing it live and sharing a musical adventure that bops back and forth through the decades. It's all about the set!
I love art and music, and I love to create art that relates to music.
