ABOUT

I started my musical life as a saxophonist, this gave me the opportunity to perform at New York’s best Hot spots. I've performed at New York's City's famous Rainbow Room, and the St. Regis to name a few. I was the only person within a seven piece Orchestra that could play piano well enough to fill in for the Band Director. I played keyboard on the Post Ceremony Cocktail Hour, and the Wedding Ceremonies. While performing in the company of great musicians, and copying the styles of the famous. I learned the fundamentals of how dynamic-processors change the relationship of the sounds we hear and love. I use these effects processors, compression units, and advance musical technology to shape and create fresh and creative sounds. I now sing and play keyboards as a solo artist at events and special parties.
