My background started as a performance artist in the late 70's, touring with several bands and doing session work. In the mid 80's I was offered a job with a large advertising agency as an in-house staff composer for national ad campaigns, winning numerous awards including a Telly award. Now, I find myself launching out as a performance artist once again, this time alittle wiser and more seasoned but musically young at heart and enjoyably in touch with every music demographic. May it be that way all of my days! Much of my music is characteristic to my being a professional studio musician for the last 28 years. In studio work I had to be able to play in multiple genres to keep working. This was cool because I love all music that is crafted well. You will hear compositions covering multiple genres, including: jazz, blues, r&b, fusion, world, progressive rock, celtic, and many blends thereof.
