From the pulsing bass drums to the calming melodies, there is no doubt that music, in all of its forms, moves and inspires everyone. 

I can clearly remember the song that swayed me to write and compose music of my own; "How's It Going Down", by DMX on his début album "It's Dark And Hell Is Hot". From the moment that bass line hit my ears I was hooked and I knew that music would be a major part of my life. 

After multiple attempts and failures of trying to recreate that and many other Hip Hop sounds and music just like it, (on a Casio and tape recorder), I became more and more aware that being a skilled composer does not happen over night. However, my many failures did not stop the continuous and inspiring moments in music that seemed to pull me in deeper.
