I grew up in a family where music and dancing performances were always embraced. I started playing bass when I was 10 and picked up the electric guitar the following year.

In my high school years, I developed, through my interest in electric guitar, an interest in electrical engineering. I ended up attending Seattle University for that. While there, I was involved in numberous musical projects as well as playing guitar in the chapel choir and climbing the ladder at the school radio station to eventually become its General Manager.

It was during this time around 2008 that I first met Sami Chohfi and started playing with Blue Helix. After my departure circa 2010, and several bands later, here I am with Blue Helix again, renewed & re-inspired.
