At what point in your life did you make the decision to become a professional musician and actually record your own albums?

In high school I decided music would be my thing, but it was several years later to fulfill having my own album. Lot's of time in between and along the way I realized in the big scheme of things, it's a marathon not a sprint!

Of your touring and gigs so far in your career, do any stand out as being particularly memorable or defining moments?

A few memorable ones...getting to perform and act in "One Life To Live" and my national anthem performance at Madison Square Garden for an NBA NY Knicks game. Both were in New York, hmmmm I wonder if there is something with that, lol.

What elements do you look for in a song that makes it especially satisfying for you to perform?

For me, it has to have the cool element...that could be the in the song form, groove, melody, unique chord progression or sounds.

What aspect of the creative process, from concept to market, do you personally find to be the most rewarding?

What I find the most rewarding is in the final product getting to market. That's the proof! When I can hold it in my hands or knowing it's accesible and hear it played on air is the best.

What do you see as the biggest challenges to the growth of Smooth Jazz in the future?

Exposure, exposure, exposure.

If you were asked (and we are asking now!) for your advice as to what the Smooth jazz format could do moving forward to insure it relevance and growth, what would your suggestion(s) be?

It seemed to get diluted with original hits from the 70's, so to avoid that as it comes back I think would help.
