cut my teeth playing piano on campus corner when i was a freshman at the university of oklahoma. got paid with pizza, which was fine because that's what i would have spent my money on anyway.
ended up with a finance and accounting degree though… that’s another story…
started playing the skirvin red piano lounge junior year, been there every friday for 6 years.
it’s become a great hang.
played some other places too.
got involved in okc’s jazz scene.
other creatives joined in.
