This is my website.
I am president of the Cleveland Federation of Musicians, Local 4 AFM. The union owns and operates two subsidiaries: Music Talent of Cleveland and Local 4 Music Fund. I am also treasurer of the North Shore AFL-CIO Federation of Labor, the central labor council in Northeast Ohio.
I write songs and released two collections: Systematic Tales and Where We Are. I sing American Popular Song, liturgical repertoire and sometimes play bass with Alex Bevan.
I served as the choral director at Lakeland Community College for six years, and as an adjunct professor of conducting at Baldwin-Wallace College for eight years. I direct choral ensembles, music direct stage productions and teach conducting classes.
I performed as an associate artist for Cleveland Opera on Tour, a chorister for Cleveland Opera, Pittsburgh Opera and the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh, a bassist for productions at Playhouse Square Foundation, Cleveland Playhouse and Great Lakes Theatre Festival, and supported a wide array of talent ranging from Phyllis Diller to the Fat Boys.
I was also an owner of the wine and martini bar Budapest Blonde.
Artists lead complicated lives and this has been made even more so by the pandemic. Reach me on my contact page for additional information regarding events, performances and services.
