Check out my "band," Intermezzo
I am a classically trained musician. I am an accomplished pianist and clarinetist, and a not-as-accomplished saxophonist and mallet percussionist. I have been a songwriter since high school.
My primary influences include classical, classic and progressive rock, and jazz. My favorite artists include (but are not limited to) Kansas, Supertramp, Boston, Toto, Journey, Chuck Mangione, Spyro Gyra, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Gustav Holst, and Frederic Chopin.
I am not a professional musician; it just happens to be my primary hobby that I take VERY seriously. I work full-time in the IT industry, so I get to play with computers all day long. I'm married with no kids (yet -- just two cats).
I am a lifelong New York State resident, and my songs reflect my home. Many of my songs (at least the ones that make references to geographic locations) make references to the great state of New York.
I am an alumni brother of Kappa Kappa Psi national honorary band fraternity. If you are a fellow brother, feel free to drop me a line!
