I have released over a dozen albums in a variety of styles, including "Carta," which reached #1 on the NAV chart. My latest solo piano album is "Butter Avenue," which celebrates the vibrancy of spring. I have performed with the jazz/funk fusion band Gemini Soul. I have also written two groundbreaking books which link music and stories: "Song of Fire" and "A Book of Hauntings." "Elliptical: The Music of Meshell Ndegeocello," which I co-authored with Andre Akinyele, is the first ever comprehensive look inside the music of this Multi-Grammy Nominated recording artist. I have a Bachelor's degree in music from the University of California at Irvine.
