Playing bass since I was 17 yrs. old, my first true passion was music, being raised by one of the greatest jazz bassist/producers in history, Harry Babasin. After performing in countless cover bands, I started my first original project in 1982. The independent record label who signed the band I was in, Uranus (pop/rock), also had a music video division, and they promptly hired me to produce and direct music videos for them, as well. I managed to get one of my videos nominated for an independent award at the 1984 Billboard/MTV Music Video Conference. That band suffered an ugly break up and the record company closed its music video division in 1986.
