It all started interesting enough as I was suited up for a school yearbook pic, so what the hell, I decided to seize that moment and get an interview with Philly's top DJ company while I was in a suit, nothing to lose right? They were impressed by my fearless take charge attitude that is a sign of a good commanding show host. I started as the youngest DJ to do the Philly club circuits, and since I had my own PA and Mic that by default made me the singer of every garage band I jammed with.
From my Childhood Piano lessons it was only natural to pick up some synths and from there I became one of the pioneers of electronica with syncronized arpeggio before Midi, then graduating to sequencing and syncing of multi programable drum, bass, and Midi sequencers, while recording my songs on midi sequenced tracks.
Fast forward to now and 2 workstation arranger keyboards with split keys and layered sounds can perform all that in itself.
Hence the solo act that sounds like a full band is born.
I've played many live shows in front of large audiences, DJ'd a few Weddings, sang at a few independent living facilities, and toured out of State.
Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, Dion, Dean Martin, Roy Orbison, Steely Dan.

Fun Fact: after recording my first 12" 45 EP in the studio, the producer must have recommended me to other recording artists in the Philly area as I was called within a month, during back to back weeks, to play keys and join
Philly's own infamous 50's band
Danny and The Juniors and The Dovels, who were doing their 50's revival tour.
I had to decline, because I was too young, still in my Senior year. Ironically Danny and the Juniors are one of the bands I cover now.
