About Me

Since the age of two, there was always music in my house. My mother was a concert pianist so, Brahms, Mozart and Chopin would make daily appearances filling the air with beautiful music. My love of Jazz began when I was a teenager. I picked up a copy of Buddy Rich's LP "Live At Caesar's Palace". Needless to say, I was blown away. Over the years, I worked in several radio stations hosting Jazz and Rock shows. I am now a broadcaster with CHUO-FM in Ottawa hosting a Jazz show called "In Transition" since 1988. Go to to listen every Sunday from 1-3pm EST
