I finally found some time to meet with my music producer Elton Ahi and start talking about production direction for "The Last Scar". String Instruments are in the works: Cello, Violins, Guitar! :) #music #singer #songwriter ... See MoreSee Less
I can't wait to start work on my next song titled: "The last scar" Lyrics and melody were completed a while ago. I already have an idea of the visual story as well. I just have to finish reaching out to friends to bring some visibility to my current music video: "Tell Me Your Name" before starting with that. ... See MoreSee Less
To kickoff the New Year...
Here's the music video for my song: "Tell Me Your Name"
It'll also be available for digital streaming and download on January 11st.
I hope in a small way, this music video supports our LOVE as straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, … loving human beings.

The first "Like" of the teaser for "Tell Me Your Name" on SoundCloud. THANK YOU Ann! I've been away from social media for quite a while. To get my feet wet, I'm focusing on FB first (and as I have very little free time right now). I'm hoping soon, I can share and connect on other platforms as well. ... See MoreSee Less
After doing some research on music distribution companies, I narrowed the list to cdbaby and TuneCore. It was a close call but I decided to go with TuneCore. I registered with them but to register the #song "Tell Me Your Name" I had to have album art. I got that ready this past weekend and will register that song soon. #music #art ... See MoreSee Less
Between June and October 2017, life happened... I got pulled away from the #music #Video and pulled into the heavy load of my full-time job and some travel. By end of October, I started working with the team to make necessary last touches to the music video. #art ... See MoreSee Less

May 21, 2017: Day 2 of shooting of #music #video for "Tell Me Your Name". Two long but very fun days of shooting.. and it truly was MAGICAL. When the director, producer, AD, Gripp, Gaffer, and actors are all in "the zone", you see magic happen and something beautiful created right in front of your eyes.

May 19, 2017: A day before the start of the two-day video shoot for "Tell Me Your Name"... cameras and other equipment have been rented and secured; cast of 4 and crew of 5 all on-board; and location prepped for the shoot. ... See MoreSee Less
In mid-April this year, we wrote the first scenes for the music video of "Tell Me Your Name" and started scouting for location and talent. After a few attempts, we were able to secure a beautiful location (a friend's house) and very talented actors who could authentically express the #love between a straight couple and a gay couple. #music This pic is a section from one of the first versions of the story line. #art ...

Late February of this year, I talked to a few music video producers in L.A. to produce my song: "Tell Me Your Name" and chose to work with Hailong Niu. I liked his work and felt he understood what I was trying to communicate through this song. ... See MoreSee Less
After more than a year of hiatus from Facebook, I'm back. Full time job, ❤️, family, travel and pursuit of #music all consumed my time. Not that any of that has changed, but somehow now I'm drawn back here to courageously share my journey as a #singer / #songwriter and be a voice in support of #equality, #diversity and #love. ...
