As an independent music publisher since 1991, I cannot express my gratitude enough for your support throughout the years.  There is no success without patron appreciation and support.  What you do for me is as important as what my art hopefully inspires within each of you and I want to sincerely thank everyone first and foremost. 

  My aim is not only to create exciting and emotionally moving music and video, but to give back to the younger generations and reveal how to accomplish these goals.  So much of the music industry remains a mystery and the more we expose it's inner workings and share in our own success, the more obvious and realistic a path this will become.

  I primarily create music and video that is raw and stripped down with the least production possible, allowing for true organic exposure of the human component we all bring to the digital era we find ourselves in, but often hide behind, and lending itself as a wonderful training tool through the example of "less is more" if you put your heart and soul into your work.

  I have a real passion for teaching as well as creating, as there is such reward in seeing someone else achieve their goals from mentoring you have provided.  Perhaps that comes with being a proud father of three amazing children myself, but I enjoy passing on my experiences with anyone that is interested in learning from them.  I believe that shared experience is certainly not the recipe for success, as of courser all paths are different for each of us, however being armed with the knowledge from which to make a better, more informed decision about any given situation certainly helps!

  I have been doing this for a long time.  Since I was in 4th grade and began playing the trumpet which carried me through high school. Professionally I really got my start in 1991 with BMI in NYC having had the opportunity to work with the late Mark Kamens of Prime Cuts Studio's fame and had 2 international underground house singles released through Miami's Hot Productions.

  As time went on, and the digital transformation began, I was introduced to the Licensing model of music striking a deal with INGrooves Records who in turn hooked me up witha deal with MTV where I had several compositions running on their Real World/Road Rules Inferno Series for several years.

  In short I have some wonderful experiences to share and would love to be able to do such things full time.  By day I am a Senior Automation Engineer for a wonderful company in Campbell California, by night I work my other creative side in the studio making music and videos and often live acoustic performances of some 30 original songs I have written over the last few years which I play in our local coffee houses here in upstate NY.
