Native Queens New Yorker hardwired with jazz.

About Me

Growing up Queens, New York in the 1970's and 1980's, I heard my older brother's drums playing constantly right above my room for 15 years. An interest in music was literally drummed right into me! As I began listening to music constantly, I furiously accumulated rock and jazz records and started attending concerts on a regular basis. After obtaining a degree in Government at St. John's, I mostly went into more of a sales and marketing career path in Manhattan. I currently live in Rego Park, Queens. My interest and passion for jazz has connected me to this great city on such a deeper level over the years. I look forward to the next chapters.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
