I live in two musical worlds: The Secular and The Sacred.
I've played classical organ since the age of 10. Throughout junior high school, I studied classical piano and organ with Mr. Charles Boehm who recognized my emerging abilities. Under his tutelage, I became assistant organist at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hicksville, Long Island, and by the time I was 13, undertook a schedule of rehearsals and performances that ultimately consumed more than five hours a day. At 15, I auditioned for Westminster Choir College and was accepted.
In my 20’s, the call of the Pop music world was so strong I walked away from my classical roots and liturgical training. I immersed myself in contemporary songwriting, singing, producing and engineering; fulfilling my need to control every aspect of my musical expression.
Ten years later, my education continued in a completely other direction: at FIT NYC, to study patternmaking and tailoring.
I have finally created a balanced musical life: Performing Classical Organ AND continuing to write Pop-Rock-Dance music.
I am a member of the American Guild of Organists, and the Organist and Choir director at Poughkeepsie Reformed Church.
