ABOUT

Born and raised in Eastern Europe in a pentecostal family, went to church 3 times a week and joined the orchestra/marching band in 1975 playing mostly the trumpet. I started learning guitar and played for fun for about 15 years, did not play much trumpet in this time. During the college time I had a partner and we started composing songs, getting the 3rd place at a students music festival in Romania, 1987. The first 2 places were taken by professionals, which are very known today - Raul Dudnic, and Adrian Dinu Schwartz. I played Alto Horn in Austria in a Marching Band, and fought children how to play guitar and trumpet / basics. We moved to USA in 1999, I started a marching band with children in a church / Detroit area, composing and transposing music scores. In 2006 I joined the FSBCS church orchestra paying trumpet. I do still compose songs for guitar/vocal mostly folk type.
