I was born in Taipei, Taiwan. I traveled and lived outside the country (Phillipines and Thailand) as a child but have lived in Alexandria (in the same house) for 22 years. I host the open mike at Tiffany Tavern in Old Town-Alexandria every Thursday night from 8:30 to 11:30. This acoustic environment allows me to explore many types of music and because I play primarily in a soloist/duet atmosphere, I can play pretty much what I want to (within reason). I currently play in a classic rock duo (Hit By Pitch) as a bassist, guitarist and singer. I save my garage rock influences for my part-time band, EMF, where I am the bassist/lead singer. I have played bass for many bands in the past and still fill-in from time to time as it is my best instrument. My ability to play acoustic guitar has been a great enabler for me to be independent of any one else's tastes. My tastes vary, but I seem to prefer 60's harmony-based folk/rock/pop, as well as obscure 60's garage rock. Oh yeah, now I'm playing keyboard in The Kris Abe Band....we do Southern Rock, Classic Rock and Blues and contemporary, I'm just along for the ride.
