About Me and Music
Photography is still very new to me, and I still have a lot to learn to get better. Music is what I grew up with since I was a kid. I did the piano lesson thing, and what became my passion was the Electric Bass. Most of my family are all musicians, but I am the only bassist. I remember when I was a teen and told my dad I want to to play Electric Bass. He didn’t answer… but it wasn’t too long after, I found a grungy old guitar case in my bedroom. My dad picked it up at a pwan shop. I opened it up, and it was a no name brand P-Bass with dead flats strings in a traditional Fender sunburst paint scheme. I haven’t stopped playing electric bass since….
I played that bass for a year, and my dad bought my a new Ibanez branded P-bass called a Cimar. I modified this bass to a PJ bass with split coil switches, and it sounded it awesome. That bass was stolen, and I bought the Fender P-bass you see me playing in the featured picture. I was 21 when I bought my Fender P, and started working in a Top 40 cover band in the Long Beach… and Los Angeles area.
Today, I play as a cover musician… but in my church (Momentum Christian Church) in Chula Vista.

What I learned and what I would do differently?
Follow your passion and set goals. Music was very important to me when I was growing up. I still enjoy playing music today. My new passion is Photography. Like in music, I’ll practice everyday… and have my mind open to learn new things.
