On  the day I was born, my mother spoke these words.....     
"My son is going to be a musician" as, she held my hands in hers.
As time passed, my first awareness of music was hearing my
"Bro-Joe" play the guitar. I knew then,
music chose me and I happily accepted.
My insatiable curiosity  was ignited with the "flame." (of music)
The patience and support of my loving parents and family .... 
nurtured my early  years as an up-coming musician
and will always be an important influence in my life.
Music, is what I  do and love. I believe music is the most honest and immediate form of communication  
Available to human beings.
I think of my musical life as: " A kid in a candy store"!
