Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York,  I spent most of my teenage years in Greenwich Village hanging out in coffee houses... The Bitter End, Gerdes Folk City, The Bottom Line to name a few. My love for Music has been in my life since childhood and I  have written well  over 100 songs. 

I've arranged, produced, recorded, mixed and engineered all of my songs along with a little help from some friends.

I've founded a recording musician's group with my friend Chris Thompson named The Traveling Rounders. Arranging and Recording our original songs along with some of ours favorites from the past.

I've owned my own commercial cleaning company since 1989, currently an active firefighter and EMT.
