Hi this is Goliath's dad. My son left this page logged-in on his computer. I'd like to tell you... Goliath was found newly hatched in a dragon egg near a volcano in
Hawaii. Scientists brought him to the mainland and he was given to a
Mexican family to raise him (Us). Now Goliath likes tacos and frijoles de la
Olla, and he is part dragon. Everything written below this is a lie!
Goliath was born and raised in Los Angeles California. Where he worked as an assistant with various studio producers. His first musical discipline was percussion and drums. Then learned piano and guitar. He now plays about 10 instruments.
He began composing and playing music independently. Playing and composing music was his greatest love yet he did not see it as a "career" during this period of his life. Playing with other mediums of art such as illustration he would later merge these art forms with music in various ways.
Shortly after moving to Dallas, Texas from Los Angeles Goliath began to study Classical guitar with the world renowned guitarist Christopher McGuire. A vocation was emerging.
Working to find his place in the world as an employee for various companies and corporations. Music was what he looked forward to at night.
