ABOUT

I love all things rock & roll... everything from the timelessness of The Beatles to the raw power and simplicity of The Ramones to the bone-crunching abilities of Sabbath and Zeppelin to the nostalgia of the 90s alternative rock that came out during my teenage years. I have played in bands for over 20 years. Most recently, I was the lead singer/guitarist/chief songwriter in the NYC band The Regulars. Since then, I have been writing and recording songs for my forthcoming second solo album.

I am looking to either start a new rock band that would be interested in playing my original material or joining a band where I can contribute my instrumental and vocal abilities. I am entirely open to learning other people's material and collaborating on future music in addition to playing songs that I have written and continue to write.
