"I feel very lucky to be able to do what I love every day and support my family while doing it. I am now a proud father and husband and my family is my number one motivation in life and business! I would not be here without their support! It's been almost 20 years since I picked up the guitar and I'm so glad that I did. I've made new friends, entertained for crowds all over the place, and I'm really happy and excited every time I play. I enjoy performing all different types of music - music for every generation. I strive to seek out new music and extend my love for music beyond the boundaries of the isolated islands that I call home. I am looking forward to many more years of playing music!"
