How we met:
“I met Mark Johnson in 1999 when I produced a group called Contact. Mark was the engineer & a great one at that. We remained friends, with Mark keeping me in the loop of his idea to start Timeless Media & eventually PFC. Acting as a consultant to Playing For Change, it’s been my pleasure to bring some key people to the PFC family, who have been able to advance the cause & give the project a solid media platform. As the drummer in the PFC Band, I look forward to making more music with new friends from around the world.”
