ABOUT

  • I have an IMDb page with some of the productions that have used my music and a few of the acting roles I've done over the years.
  • My dad influenced me to start studying guitar, singing, recording and writing songs at the age of 13. I began acting in high school plays then too. 
  • Then I went to the Hartford Conservatory and The Hartt School where I graduated with a degree in music business and jazz guitar. 
  • When I got out of school I started making websites for side money and learned HTML, PHP, SQL and JavaScript which I still use today.

  • In 2008 I started DanoSongs Royalty Free Music as a place to post all the music I was making that I had no idea what to do with.
