I grew up enjoying playing many instruments from the guitar to the piano, clarinet, and bass. I taught myself how to play slide guitar and finger-pick.
I majored in music and business at the University of Fredonia in New York. It was there I studied music theory and the history of the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Impressionistic composers.Starting at the age of 16, I began to play in clubs and concert halls as a soloist (guitar and piano) and with many bands (playing guitar, keyboards, slide guitar, and bass). I have performed in many New York City venues over the years such as the China Club, Tramps, The Bitter End, Kenny's Castaways (sadly closed in 2012), and the Back Fence (sadly closed in 2013).
Now after a career on stage, my passion has moved behind the band, writing songs for other musicians, lyricists, films (Dallas Buyers Club and Once Upon a Time in Venice), and television producers. My music is played on "Extreme MakeOver Home Edition" (now canceled by ABC, but still played on cable TV all over the globe) and on Netflix, Amazon, and other Cable TV shows all over the world.
I credit the incredibly talented musicians I have worked with over the years that have given my songs such life and for that I am extremely grateful for. At this point in my musical career I just enjoy writing, recording, and playing with great musicians and most importantly being around good people who play music because they love it.
My music is here to share with you. If you’d like to download them, they are available to download for no cost.
