My professional music career started at the age of 13 in Galliano Louisiana, south of New Orleans near the swamps. In Louisiana I was Lead Singer, guitarist and front man for Flyght, Halifax, Impulse and Voyager. The stage was his home, always has been and always will be.
I lived for 25 years Los Angeles where I worked as a Vocal Instructor at Musicians Institute in Hollywood, managed the Synclavier Studio of Chris Currell (Michael Jackson “Bad” Tour) for four years. I managed an Orchestral Film Scoring room where with such clients as Dream Works, Disney, Warner Brothers, Johnny Haliday and my last project there was a trailer for a "Harry Potter" film.
I was a 10 year voting member of the Grammy Awards (NARAS), a voting Member of Society of Composers and Lyricists (SCL) and Audio Engineering Society (AES). I am a BMI recording Artist, Producer & Publisher.
I am a pioneer in 3D Sound technology and a developer for the Wolcott Audio’s Ohmnisphere Speakers. I recorded the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra in 1992 at Columbia Sound stage and also did 3D Sound recordings for Disney. In 1993 I created 3D Sound Inc. where I was President/CEO and I developed 3D Virtual Instruments for Korg, Kurzweil, Ensoniq, Digidesign/ProTools, Emu Systems, Roland and Apple. I had created the world’s first 3D Virtual Instruments for Stereo Samplers, such as (The Piano), (3D Keys- The Dream Weaver, coproduced by Gary Wright, 3D Drums plus others.
In between all of that I spent a lot of time traveling to exotic locations around the world recording Nature sounds with my 3D microphone system. I recorded the Rainforest of Brasil, Waterfalls of Hawaii, Mnt. Kilauea Volcano (Inside and Out) as well as underwater recordings of Humpback Whales and Dolphin for relaxation, meditation, Tinnitus Therapy and Environment Enrichment CD's. The outcome of all my recordings is a very large 3D Sound library with more sounds than you could possibly imagine!
As of 2006 I'm living in Germany and musical story is still unfolding. I have performed with Martin Engelien’s Go-Music All Stars Tour and Specials in 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013 on the CORDIAL Agora Stage.
In 2011 I joined the Christmas All Stars with Bobby Kimball of Toto and also performed for them in 2012.
In 2012 I was honored to be a part of the Frankfurt All Stars Band at the Musik Messe Frankfurt with Bobby Kimball, Tommy Denander, Bruce Gaitsch, Curt Bisquera, Pitti Hecht, Jimmy Kresic and Jekko Stjepanovic.
I have presented workshops, seminars and lectures at the Institute for Musik und Medien in Duesseldorf and the Surround Sound Conference in Detmold.
