The product of two Juilliard students, one an aspiring Broadway-style composer and the other an opera singer, he has been playing the piano since he was five years old.  He’s had a diverse career. He has written music for television, including themes and songs for "Monday Night Football", "Another World", "Mighty Mouse, the New Adventures", and "One Life To Live" (for which he received an Emmy-nomination). He has starred in theatrical tours of Broadway shows ("Pump Boys & Dinettes"), music-directed on TV ("Afterdrive" starring Denis Leary, two Tom Brokaw specials), accompanied a number of legendary performers (Chuck Berry, Dizzy Gillespie, Rosie O'Donnell, Oscar Brand, Mike Burstyn, Heather Headley, Ben Vereen, Simon Phillips,Tony Trischka, Catherine Russell, Will Lee, Rob Paparozzi among others), entertained as a singer/pianist at approximately one-thousand private events (events for Broadway’s Tony Awards, the British Consulate, Al Gore, Mayor Bloomberg, The Discovery Channel, many major corporations), concertized ("The Great American Songbook on the Jazzy Side") played jazz in Tokyo, worked in industrial theater for many more corporations, music directed off-Broadway ("Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah") and worked on Broadway (teaching the Von Trapp children their songs for “Sound Of Music” and playing in The Radio City Music Hall Pit Orchestra).

He has been a blue ribbon judge at the Emmy Awards, and appeared in Who’s Who in Entertainment and Who’s Who in Emerging American Leaders.
