I retired from a truck driving and driver instructor career in 2007 and since then, I've been devoting 100% to my music which was impossible to do before. Lived,worked and had a band in the Toronto, Ontario, Canada area for 7 1/2 yrs. The band was called "Cold Sweat". Returned to the New Jersey area in 1984 and laid off playing until 1997 when I got back into it on a limited basis. Played locally with a band for 1 yr., Blues and Classic Rock, and have slowly worked my way into the music community here in N.E. Pennsylvania. I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois.
