ABOUT

I am a classically trained pianist/keyboardist from childhood. Later in my college years I studied jazz piano and performed in a jazz fusion band for several years in the Boston Area. Over the last 10 years I added Hammond organ to my rig and began working with classic rock/blues bands in the Boston area. In 2016, I co-founded the band Ghost Train, which I am currently a member of.

Ghost Train is 5 piece original/cover rock and blues band based in the Boston area and performing at clubs, events, and festivals in the New England area. We released our 1st CD "Willing To Sacrifice" in 2016 and are working on a 2nd release.
