I began my music career working as a guitarist with Ike & Tina Turner, and later for Sly Stone, which opened up the doors for me to support the likes of Sly and The Family Stone and Weather Report as an opening act on tour. Being around many musicians, I found himself around the studio accepting session work for the likes of Bob Dylan, Herbie Hancock and Tito Puente; eventually dabbling in music engineering with Bill Laswell where we formed underground electronic-dub based label, Subharmonic Records. Growing into a producer, I was fortunate to have recorded reggae/dub stars Sly & Robbie, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and the Heptones, as well as the great and late Ravi Shankar and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

Pioneering some of the early recordings of ambient and electronic music, I decided to bring close engineering friend Logan Strand on board to launch the Logical Drift project in 2011; which focused on ancient spiritual systems, psychoacoustics and aural imaging that heighten the listeners’ sense of wellness and tranquility. Under the Logical Drift project, Logan and I have released five albums which have gained the support by the likes of Sirius XM Radio, Pandora, PBS, NPR, Music Choice and many other media companies worldwide.

After 30 years of working on major recordings, I continue to compose and produce pop-driven projects, with a reggae influence; however, premiered exclusively on Patreon.
