I am a producer with skills in visual design well as audio and video production. When the desktop publishing revolution of the 1980s arrived, I decided to take my career in a different direction and began to work as a graphic designer. Supported by friends and acquaintances I acquired through my involvement with music, I was able to provide services to clients who knew I was aware of the needs of the musician and performer and was sympathetic to their goals and causes. That beginning experience in designing for print has expanded to a variety of media; for example, I have several websites and nearly three dozen commercially available CD covers to my credit at this point.

I also have an extensive portfolio as a photographer, which led to videography. As a musician I have always been involved with audio production, and that knowledge came in handy when scoring and mixing sound for the videos I edit. Videotaping live musical performances for the first time around 2004 expanded to creating video for non profit organizations and educators soon afterward. Lastly, I spent a number of years in corporate gigs that centered around the food and auto industries which I parlayed into providing support for small businesses and concerns not connected to music. No matter what the project, I look for opportunities to work in collaborative environments where I can employ the skills and experience gained through the years.

A graduate of the Jazz Studies and Performance program at William Paterson University, I first performed for pay at the age of 13. I like to think of myself as a versatile drummer who can adapt to and become comfortable in a number of styles. It’s been great to be able to return to public performance on a regular basis, and you can find me in the pit with a worship band each week as well as on the bandstand in both jazz and pop situations. I am most excited about creating an even more individual identity by working to develop a presence in the world of electronic music—an art form I have been devoted to since hearing the music of Jimi Hendrix at the age of eleven. And being that drummers are the among the few artists that actually design the setup of their instruments (and in some cases the instruments themselves), I love staying abreast of trends and innovations in the drum and percussion instrument industry and the musical instrument industry at large.
