Tell us a little about your background...
I’m a native to the city of Los Angeles. I’ve been playing music for over half of my life. Classically trained first, until many years later, the jazz bug bit me, and I’ve been doing it ever since. My styles range from Rock to Bach and everything in between.

Classically & Jazz trained on the acoustic bass for 35+ years. When I was younger, I had the pleasure of shortly studying under Bill “William” Rene in West L.A. I was very lucky to be the youngest student admitted for the weekend workshops at the Grove school of music, where while concurrently going to Fairfax High School (Class of 1988) as a music major, I spent my senior year at Grove. I studied under Dean Taba for two semesters. Upon my graduation of Fairfax High School, I was awarded the Herb Alpert Music Scholarship.

When I attended Valley College, I was attached to the 18 piece big band for a handful of semesters; conducted by Don Nelligan where I was introduced to film scoring, as well as "all that jazz". The Valley College Orchestra conducted by T.A. Lynn is where I learned how to incorporate my classical training into my now love for film scoring.

After a four year stent at Valley College, it was time for me to pickup my Classical studies at Santa Monica City College’s orchestra, conducted by L. Beasley, where I held the chair 1st bass, 2nd string. While at SMC, every summer I would play at the African Market place on Rodeo Avenue in Los Angeles.

At this point and with years of colleges, gigging and working almost full time hours, I had a short stint over at Cal-State Los Angeles, where I was a bassist for Dr. Buck's orchestra. Prof. Williams had a wind ensemble that I allowed to add the warmth of the upright bass. The string bass brought an interesting sound and texture to a sea of woodwinds & brass. It was an amazing experience, reading & transposing other parts. This experience paid off years later, as I have done the same thing with the Al Malaikah Shrine Los Angeles Million Dollar Band back in 2009 and other projects since.

My strong point is I’m a reader. I also have a very good ear and play in the pocket. I am available for jams, session work, & shows.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
