I have been acting and making music since a very young age while living in Brooklyn. My Grandfather had left his piano there and I would run home every day and play it. My mother encouraged me to learn as much as possible about the arts. I went to the Rudolph Steiner School in Manhattan, took ballet classes and acting as well as art and botany group in Prospect Park.
My stage and TV experience involves a wide variety of things including Broadway, Summer Theater, Off-Broadway, and several years of playing a lead on a soap opera, Love Of Life on CBS. During this time I kept up with the music and was asked to record an album for the (then) Poppy Records, which later became Tomato Records and they asked if I would like to record again. It seemed the right time to re-enter the arena, since many years of learning experiences provided me with the material and courage to pour it in to music for people to (hopefully) listen to and enjoy.
I was put into the compilation The Great Tomato Singer/Songwriter Collection along side legends such as Johnny Cash and Hank Williams. This was one of the most exciting experiences of my life! As far back as I can remember, these people have been some of my heroes. Two songs of mine in the CD are ‘Treasure Island’ and ‘When I Find Your Beat. As far as inspiration is concerned, the feelings that comprised the writing of these songs is multi-layered, allegorical and abstract responses to experiences in life. When I sit down to play, I picture I'm in a ship, and it has an imaginary wheel, and the keys help me glide and steer the vehicle.
