PROLOGUE

My debut album, True Design, is about the artistic nature of the universe. The world in every sense has an element of art, connecting us to God; therefore, we're all a part of something greater than ourselves. Given the current global climate, it is clear to me that our plans have no weight against nature. I desire to live life with this outlook---hoping to be a light that contributes to making today less burdensome through music.

The jury said: 'his tone, phrasing and general way of playing remind us of many greats before him. This combined with his determination to make it from the fringes of jazz into the very heart of Jazz, New York, convinced us that he has a bright future ahead!’
