I create music that combines various styles and rhythms creating a flowing groove that features unique, intriguing elements. Spending most of my life in my home state of Rhode Island, I was lucky enough to live as an expatriate in Rome, Italy for three years of my developmental life. In that time, I traveled to many different countries that affected my artistry, spirit, and inspiration for creativity. Having spent my summers back in the United States I had the time and space to synthesize and reflect on these cultures, incorporating them into my musical style creating an altogether new sound uniquely my own. I am inspired by artists who weave different cultures into their music by combining traditional western music with musical styles from the middle east and far east. I aspire to use these inspirations and my own experience to develop my own style of playing that utilizes these styles as a foundation. Having lived as an expat at a critical age when friendships start formalizing I have experienced the challenge of transitioning into a new culture. Fortunately, I was able to make great friends through music overcoming the language barrier that prevents direct communication. Furthermore, I enjoy mixing and producing music. The feeling of bringing together all of the elements of a track is incredibly and creatively satisfying. When creating, I aim to inspire the listener by showing them something they might never have heard before. I want the listener to experience something unfamiliar and innovative through incorporating multiple styles into my playing. As an artist and performer I hope to develop a brand of music that inspires my audiences as well as other musicians. I want to make my mark as an innovator of music and leave a lasting impression on the soundscape of my art, music. It is my utmost desire to connect the world through music by sharing my personal experiences through my craft and encourage people to explore the world through sound.
