Born and raised in New Rochelle New York music took hold at a very early age. Influenced by family music collections of Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor, Bobby Darin, Elvis Presley and countless others, the interest in singing songwriting began. After attending the Westchester Conservatory of Music, the singer songwriter proceeded with a long and diverse musical life that has played a major part in his development. Along with local appearances, live concert performance, and studio work, he has been a partner in recording, songwriting and production with Steve Katz of Blood Sweat and Tears, the Grammy and Emmy nominee Peter Denenberg, and the Grammy winner Rory Young. As a vocalist, songwriter, guitarist, he has spent more than a decade volunteering his time and musical talent comforting hospice, nursing home, and hospital patients, leading him to write, produce, record, and donate a collection of songs to hospice organizations entitled “Behind Sacred Walls.”
