Biography
I started playing a used beat-up Stage73 Rhodes electric piano as a Senior in highschool because I could not afford a CP70. I was a big fan of Prog music before I even knew what prog rock was. Later I bought a Moog Prodigy becuase I couldn't afford a Mini, but wrote and played original music with friends. I became a Christian soon after high school and played for church and with Christian rock bands. Wanting to do more progressive style though I am self-taught and limited technically, I still enjoy writing in that style. I have played in the studio, have my own and record with other artisits. I am finishing a CD with some friends that will be released soon I hope. The band is Time Horizon and it is Cprog. www.myspace.com/timehorizonmusic
One song has been released on a CD produced by Randy George of Ajalon and Neal Morse CPR3. For more info on the artisits see www.cprogrock.com
Influences or Favorite Bands
My first influence was Kieth Emerson. I saw ELP in Oakland, CA in 1977-79, and knew I wanted to play keys. Bands that also infuenced me were Yes, UK, Styx, Camel also bands Jethro Tull, Queen and later Asia and Dream Theatre. Which I have all seen. The New Prog scene started for me with Spocks Beard and I keep finding new stuff all the time.
You can find me.

Ah, OK. So you're with Time Horizon. I've checked out your samples on your site before. Good stuff. You should put some samples up here. Blessings.

Thanks Ralph! Very kind words. We have not been on any of the CPR albums. We finished a little too late for the third one. But Randy George (he played on our album) said that if a fourth CPR album is released, we should be on it. We are on that page you sent as a link. We were also on Thundersongs before we signed with Progrock.

What is Power of Prog


If the quality of music shows you listen to matter, then check out my shows on House of Prog every Tuesday & Friday when I spin some of the best new vinyl. Yes vinyl! Because music should flow not be compressed.

Attention Bands... Do you have a vinyl release and want to be featured and played on my shows?

Then drop me a line.
