Guitar & Vocals

 

I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Music from New York University in 1993. I also studied with the famous voice teacher Carlo Menotti. In the early 90's, I released my first jazz cd, and played at many clubs in the New York area. I was hired by the Seabourn Cruise line as a cabaret entertainer, and performed nightly on their ship going to the Caribbean and South America.

 

In 1995, I released an original pop/rock CD, Rockin' With You, on independent label Rockin' Records and performed with my band at many rock clubs, colleges, and concerts.

 

As a producer and guitarist, I have worked with singer/songwriters Marc Stancato, Venus Ramos, Rhonda Bennett, and Paul Bessa. I have also composed jingles for various businesses, most recently a jingle for the Blimpie Corporation. I also teach music privately in Westchester County.

 

I formed the Jazzy 3 out of my love for jazz music and have entertained at private events, weddings, various clubs and venues throughout the tri-state area.
