How did you hear about Metro Idol?
I just happened to go to The Cottage the night the contest was happening, so I entered!
Where and which night did you perform you Preliminary?
Wednesday 10/13 at The Cottage
How long have you been singing and when did you realize your passion for singing?
I was in the Texas Boys Choir as a child, but my voice changed very early (5th grade!) so I had to drop out. Other kids teased me for my deep booming voice and I became very self-conscious of it. Later as an adult, during a sabbatical following the end of my IT career in 2017, I took bass guitar and singing lessons at School of Rock (in Burbank, CA) and found out people like the unique timbre of my singing voice. Now I can’t get enough of being on stage!
When I left Los Angeles and moved back to Texas, I found the karaoke community here and haven’t stopped. I started hosting karaoke this summer.
Tell us something interesting about you. Could be anything from random/hidden/rare talents, upbringing, challenges you’ve faced or moment(s) from your childhood, etc. This is where you can express what you would like us to know that sets your apart!
While at School of Rock in Hollywood I got to perform “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” at the Whisky A Gogo on the Sunset Strip, the very same stage where Poison got their start in the 1980’s.
I’m a certified SCUBA diver, and a sailor. I have sailed from California to Mexico twice, and have dived in three oceans.
