I first fell in love with the music I heard in my head. The first song I wrote was for my mother, whom aquired a piano for me at age eight. Then came the music of Broadway: I was a star in my own mind, and boy could I act!
While living in NYC I not only worked as an actor but put together two bands that played only original music. The first one was named "CROW," a trio, and later on three different incarnations of a bigger band called "Lost & Found." We were fairly successful and had a regular gig in the West Village at "The Bitter End."
In Nashville, NYC and Houston I've played many of the venues listed on this site, and will continue playing locally, in NE Ohio, as a solo Singer/Songwriter.
I am currently playing Senator Fipp in "Urinetown: the musical!" at the Chagrin Valley Little Theater, and will perform the part of the tenor (Tony) at the same venue September 12-27. You can get details and purchase tickets at www.cvlt.org
