Music is my passion. I love to write it as well as play it. Acoustic or electric,
it doesn’t matter. Besides my solo engagements, I play lead guitar in The
Roustabouts. I’ve opened up for some very talented acts, most notably
Stephen Cochran and The Hofners.
Besides the sheer thrill of playing in front of a live audience, I have a
network of brilliant musician friends who inspire me. Music itself is a
wonderful ride but it’s the ultimate experience when shared with others.
Just like life itself.
When I perform, my aim is to see you tap your foot, smile, sing along or
bring home a memory that you won't forget.
I grew up in a small town outside of Syracuse, New York called Chittenango. It was farm country. Beautiful. I
spent my high school years as a three season athlete with little time for music . . . so I thought. I started
hanging around the music room during lunch in my senior year. I thought it would be cool to play some guitar.
I learned a few chords from my buddy, Joe and I bought my first guitar in the summer of ’78, the summer
following high school graduation. In my second year of college, I found my way to the campus bar where I
performed my first gig with a female singer and I was forever hooked. We split $35!
