You could say I'm musically bipolar: I write and record Electro Pop songs about love, lust, relationships, social and environmental issues. And I'm a Classical Organist.
Throughout junior high school, I studied piano and classical organ with Charles Boehm at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hicksville, NY. As a student at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ, I studied organ with Dr. George Markey and Joan Lippincott, and in 2011-15 with David Enlow in NYC.
In my 20's, the call of the Pop world was so strong I walked away from my classical roots and liturgical training. I enrolled at NYC's The New School and immersed myself in contemporary songwriting, band ensemble, voice, and engineering.
In the 80's I built an 8 track recording studio in my studio apartment, fulfilling my need to control my musical expression.
A detour, in the form of clothing and fabric design studies, presented itself in the mid-1990s. First at NYC's Parson's School of Design where I studied tailoring, then at FIT where I studied pattern-making and draping for 2 years.
Pop music Summoned me once again and I returned to my recording studio and released my debut CD in 2000, performing in NYC's China Club, Cheetah, Downtime, Acme Underground, CBGB's, The Elbow Room, and Hard Rock Cafe on West 57th St.
During the summers of 2012-14 I returned to Westminster for 'Choral Conducting Intensive' with James Jordan and faculty @ The Conducting Institute.
Since 2012 I'm the organist and choir director at Poughkeepsie Reformed Church, NY
