I have been a lifelong Padres fan and will always bleed Padres blue, white, sand, orange, brown, and yellow. In 2010 when the opportunity to play organ for the Padres arose, I tenaciously beat down the doors at 100 Park Blvd and harassed everyone I could to get the gig. (Turned out the other people auditioning were DODGERS FANS. True story). Seven years later, I can say I have loved every second of playing organ for the Padres and look forward to doing it as much as possible in the future. I work hard preparing new music to play at the ball games, and I love interacting with all the fans and broadcasters alike to enhance everyone’s experience at Petco Park.
2016 marks my seventh year playing organ for the San Diego Padres. In 2014, I also composed and performed all the organ music for Sony’s Video game “MLB THE SHOW ’14”. My music is also in MLB THE SHOW ’15 and ’16 (as far as I know).
As the organist for the San Diego Padres I’ve been featured on the “Fox Sports San Diego” shows “Padres Point Of View”, “Padres Weekly” and “Padres Social Hour” and have been in the press in local newspapers Check out this article from June 2013. I’ve also contributed to some of the Padres blogs and made many friends through these blogs and through Twitter. The community of fans that support the San Diego Padres is an awesome one and I’m proud to count myself among them for LIFE. Here’s a cool video from a couple years ago that was featured on MLB.com.
