About Me

Music has always been a part of my life. As a toddler I played air guitar.
In first grade I began taking guitar lessons.
While walking home from school, every step was a musical note in my mind.
When I was sixteen I snuck into my first Manhattan nightclub.
In college I learned audio editing and did marathon radio shows.
House music and beat mixing made sense to me and I still believe it can heal the world.

I am a wide-eyed vision kid from New Jersey who went for it full blast…no regrets…never looked back.

ALSO this story began in a time before the onslaught of “hey look at me I’m gonna live my life posting stuff on the Internet”

I know….”OHHH THE IRONY to put that on your website” But the truth is that for every picture I have there are 10,000 in my head and I have no idea how many pictures of my self I have never seen.
For every card or letter I can still find there are numerous fantastic experiences I have had the pleasure to enjoy.
I love to LIVE life, to stop and pull out a device to remember it has not been me all that often… Although a part of me wishes it had been. I did manage to take some pictures and…

NO REGRETS, besides

IT’S ALL IN THE MUSIC ANYWAY!

Worth Mentioning
In my music I try to capture the sounds and spirit of the wind propelling a boat across the open sea under a glowing full moon.

Also Worth Mentioning
I like to tell stories. I have many stories True stories about real people. Amazing people. This will be my forum to get these stories out. If you have a good one that we shared please remind me of it. I love to laugh.
