Since the time I was 13 years old I have had the incredible opportunity to work with Movement Therapists, Arobic Instructors, Martial Artists, Dance Choreographers, and Dancers of all kinds; Ballroom, Tap, Ballet, Irish, Scottish, Latin, African, Flamenco, and Modern. It continues to be an amazing experience and a profound inspiration for me to create rhythm music to support the art of another. There is simply no greater feeling for me then to see someone feeling my energy and spirit through my music and then feeling compelled to move. A Beautiful way to connect with another.
The following are video excerpts of my continual work in creating and supporting others through the connection of music, movements and dance.
