About Me

I studied Music Education at Montclair State University in New Jersey prior to entering the military and graduating from the Naval School of Music in 1967. I then attended and later graduated Berklee College of Music joining the faculty immediately afterwards in 1973. After several more years in Boston teaching and performing with several Motown Artists and other industry headliners, I moved to Los Angeles to perform, record, and take part in film sideline work after recording for a United Artists group and touring with them across the country in 1978. In 1989 I decided to take another path in music by moving to the island of Maui, Hawai'i. Besides a regular gig at Blackie's Bar in Lahaina, I performed across the islands and in Hong Kong for shows, concerts and conventions. In 1996 I made another move this time to Bangkok, Thailand to perform and teach for nearly 20 years in several national universities and schools and in various shows, concerts, recordings, radio and film in the country as well. In 2011 I made the final move to Tel Aviv, Israel after several trips earlier including a 7 month long stay in Jordan as a resident artist at a resort on the Dead Sea. Until early in 2020, I performed in Tel Aviv regularly at the Hilton Hotel, and continued to perform in concerts and shows with numerous Israeli artists who moved back and forth from NYC. My home is now in Tel Aviv along with another in Bangkok still.
