Better known as the guitarist/songwriter of erstwhile experimental/alternative rock band – Lounge Piranha, he is also the C.E.O of Hoirong, and makes a living as a music therapist.

His solo material has been described by Laura Castellino as: “Meaningful, deep with an alternative edge.

Music that drives home the reality of the essence of being, while drawing an undercurrent of ageless freedom laid bare by deeper truth, revealing a knowing of purpose, and of self that makes all else seem fleeting, superficial, dismissible, leaving in its wake a shimmering of faith, of hope. Hauntingly realistic! ”
