Born on 3rd of Nov. in 1953 and I started playing guitar since I was 8 yrs. old, it was only for fun, 'til 1969 when my father died of bowel cancer and I was only 16 yrs. old then, later I joined in the band, 'til it became a job, Just fortunate I was at the right time when music was so popular and I was doing what I love to do in life.

1969-2003 worked as a musician was sometime's extremely good and sometime's extremely bad, like a roller coaster ride going up & down compared to a stable job but I'm happy because I love music very much since my childhood. Some people think I'm a music freak. Now I'm a music arranger, composer, MIDI programmer and my love of guitar playing. Music is my life............. my father's dream of me to become a doctor or an engineer or a pilot like my godfathers were.

When he left the world I've known & everything gradually started to change, later of confusion my whirl mind was into a "pick a choice of interest for my future" and I choose "the music" as my heart and soul told me so. These were my experiences; I've been taught in music whilst working under the baton of late Dencio Lazo & his orchestra performing nightly in the nightclub (basement of Magellan International Hotel). He was my teacher, a band leader, bassist, all saxes, kbd & arranger. After his guidance & helpful techniques, I've played and worked on guitar, bass, drums, percussions & keyboards with cover bands and we played music of Carlos Santana, Malo, Santa Esmeralda, Blood Sweat & Tears, Chicago, Ides of March, Tower Of Power, Earth, Wind and Fire & etc.. 1975 became a member in one of the bands of the best trumpeter Kiko Gatchalian. When I became a qualified lead guitarist in 1984 I've played and worked the guitar licks of Carlos Santana, Larry Carlton, Jeff Beck, Pink Floyd, Eagles, Mark Knofler, Van Halen, George Benson, Ritchie Blackmore, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Al Di Meola, Lee Ritenour & etc. in Beefy's Cabin, Hong Kong 84-89.
