Producer - Composer - Writer - Mammal
At age 56 I have already lead an interesting life. I found the theater in high school, then started as a wedding DJ back in 1986. Being a DJ took me to the high seas where I spent ten years working on cruise ships and eventually worked my way up to Cruise Director. I was lucky enough to work with entertainment legends like Norm Crosby, Jerry Lewis, and Phyllis Diller to name just a few.
You can read about more of my adventures on the full bio page. Below you can enjoy some of the music and video I have produced over the years.
