I've never quite fit into a singular mold - whether it came to my education, the instruments I play, or the jobs I've held. I've always been diverse - you might even say 'all over the place' - and I've always been hungry to accomplish more. Some people have called me a Jack of All Trades. I'm terribly uncomfortable with that label. So I've settled on something simple: Producer, Engineer & Writer. My careers has been pretty diverse and has spanned over three decades in both the music and Internet industry. I've been blessed to have credibility and appeal that encompasses the worlds of jazz, R&B, rock and pop. Whenever possible, I'm constantly striving to embody the dual ideals of virtuosity and versatility. In the process, I've been branded as both a gifted multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, and have been recognized as a talented producer, composer and arranger. As a GRAMMY® producer/engineer and BMI writer, I've worked with some of the biggest names in the entertainment and business world; including: Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson, Lindsey Buckingham, 3M, Goodyear and Blockbuster Video. I've also honed my business acumen serving at the upper-levels of companies including Otari, NEOTEK, REP/SVC Magazine and GATE International. Over the last several years, I've completed project work for Russ Freeman, The Rippingtons and Eric Marienthal. In the process, my work has been featured along side of tracks and has been performed by Chick Corea, Peter Erskine and Russell Ferrante. My jazz solo album - Sunset Key - was released in December 2005 on Polar Boehme Records. The follow-up - Miracles - was released in April 2007. All of this came at a price! Specifically, I mastered my performance, engineering and production skills with degrees from the University of Miami School of Music and College of Engineering. I like to think that my easy-going style is balanced by my ever-increasing love of all things technical and creative. Lastly, I'm equally at home in recording, mixing and mastering studios working on major and independent projects.
