I am the founder of the modern hard rock band, IMAGES OF EDEN as well as the vocalist for the Guatemalan-based metal band, DREAD THE FORSAKEN, and TX-based progressive metal band, ALL TOO HUMAN. I have also worked with many other acts on a "for hire" basis and am always seeking out new opportunities.
I have been a musician, vocalist, songwriter/ composer of 25 years. I started playing guitar at age 13, then decided I wanted to learn other instruments as well (bass guitar, drums, keyboards and vocals). Over the next 10 years, I played in multiple bands, focusing on honing my skills / tweaking my style and generally “finding myself” as a musician. I received formal vocal training in college from a classically trained opera singer as well as one on one guitar instruction, learning technique and theory, so I have vast musical knowledge as well.
Since 1996, I have been involved in many projects, with extensive studio and live experience. I have worked with artists from many different genres/ styles- from rock/ metal (including many of its subgenres- progressive, power, symphonic, thrash, traditional, etc.), to gospel, R&B and even Celtic/ new age. This variety of styles/ genres has really pushed me out of my comfort zone and forced me to really become a very diverse musician/ vocalist.
Finally, after parting ways with a band in 1998, I knew it was time to bring my vision to life without having it diluted or compromised. In September 1999, I went into the studio with a session drummer to record the debut IMAGES OF EDEN CD (CHAPTER I). My goal was to fully produce a CD with my own original material playing all of the instruments myself (except drums) as well as design the artwork. The final product would then be used to carefully select musicians to complete the full-time lineup. This was the birth of my band "IMAGES OF EDEN" and only the beginning...
