Music is my life’s passion! Growing up in Brooklyn New York exposed me to street corner crooners, Afro Latin beats, Blues, Jazz and Rock & Roll. The Brooklyn Day parade was always a spectacular event featuring drum and bugle corps from all over Brooklyn. The finest marching bands the city had to offer. I wasn’t old enough to join a competition drum corps, so I decided to join the neighborhood Boy Scout troop. Finally I had a drum which gave me great joy. Marching down the street playing a tenor drum in my Boy Scout uniform is a cherished memory that I have of growing up in the Brooklyn.

The Apollo theatre was another influence in my youth. I knew the back stage manager’s son and he would gift me with wonderful seats now and then. In high school I discovered the harmonica along with a steady diet of R&B, Jazz, Rock, I never got stuck of any genre and appreciated the fusion of different styles. I enlisted in the Air Force in Florida after graduating Longwood High in Suffolk County NY.
While stationed in Okinawa Japan I met countless bad ass, funky, musicians from all over the US.

For seven years I played keyboards in a top forty cover band “Shock Tacy”. Working with Steve Howard the owner of the “Power Station” recording studio in Okinawa Japan. I learned a lot about Audio Engineering. After retirement I returned to California and opened my own recording studio Phat Daddy’s Music Studio in 1999. In 2000 Atlanta was to be coined the Hip Hop headquarters of the DirtySouth. I decided to relocated to ATL for work in the music industry. I worked with various Audio Visual companies and Wizard Electronics a music repair facilities. After a period of time, I decided that I should take a “leap of faith,” and start my own business building recording facilities.

I moved to NYC in 2012. I discovered the THI studio in Brooklyn, and received my audio engineering certificate from Robert Honablue. I now reside in Portland Oregon producing and recording music.
