I was deep into breakdancing in Junior high. The movies "beat street" & "breakin’" were huge in my world. Then i Joined Denver’s Future Jazz Project in 2001. I made a kids CD called "Kids Are Funky, Too" in 2002. In 2003 Zilla appeared out of thin air (long story), in 2006 we started Sporque w/ Ooah (Glitch Mob) & Jamie Janover. I played my 1st VibeSquad set at Symbiosis Gathering 2006 (30 minutes long right before the Zilla set), but 2007 wast the year that VibeSquad really got rollin: releasing ep’s "Return of the Pudding People" & "Songs to Accompany Dance Move: The Worm" on NativeSate and Proboscis & playing numerous live sets Colorado, Oregon, California, BC, Texas, & BlackRockCity.... 2008 is starting off with a bang! I listen to mostly electronic music these days (havent picked up my guitar in quite a while). I love making music with a computer.
