How it Started
Like many Utahans, I was blessed to grow up in a home with a piano. Throughout my growing up years, I came to understand that our family piano had an important impact on my life. Nearly every memory I have of growing up is accompanied by music.
In my teenage years, I noticed the family piano was horrendously out of tune. It was detrimental to my musical ear. After not being able to bear it any longer, I decided to figure out how to tune the piano by myself.
After countless hours of research, hard work, and plenty of trial and error, I successfully tuned my family piano.
Since 2011, I have worked for multiple piano stores and Brigham Young University, and have worked alongside with and learned so much from some of the best piano technicians in the world. Among whom are Rick Baldassin, Keith Kopp, Torben Garlin, Werner Albrecht, and many others. I am a Registered Piano Technician with the Piano Technicians Guild. Additionally, I am a C. Bechstein Factory Trained Concert Technician. Suffice it to say, I have the knowledge and experience to best help customers fall in love with their piano again.
Being an expert piano technician gives me a unique perspective on entry level, mid-grade, and high end professional pianos. I understand pianos inside and out better than any sales person in the industry. This knowledge led me to become Utah's exclusive dealer of C. Bechstein.
On a personal note, I married my wife in 2015. We have four beautiful sons. Some of my other hobbies aside from music include biking, juggling, and exploring nature with my family. I served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Jakarta, Indonesia. I have a degree in Middle Eastern Studies and Arabic.
