Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Was a very smart kid, but despite understanding things conceptually, he never did well in school.
His mom says that looking back, it’s now apparent that he had a learning and attention issue, but at the time, they didn’t know what dyslexia was.
While he was at college, he stumbled upon a blues band that needed a keyboardist.
He told his dad, “I would go join this band if it weren’t for college,” and his dad replied, “Do it. That’s what you’re going to do eventually, anyways.”
Decided to drop out of school and become a full-time musician.
Says he never just “realized” that music could be more than a hobby; he worked every day at making sure that it became his career.
Founded The Luminescent Orchestrii, an experimental music group based in New York City.
He likes to take small instruments or sounds and create “epic” music from them; says his music is informed by his belief that everyone leads an epic life.
