Hi and welcome to my website.

    Allow me to give you a small amount of very general background here on the homepage and then, for more specialized needs, please use the links at the left side of the page.



I have spent the last 40+ years as a full time professional in the entertainment business. Much of this time has been spent as a performer in popular Cleveland area bands such as Buckeye Biscuit Band, Ital, First Light, and (1990 - present) American Worldbeat Band Macaw. I have also worked in several capacities from project Co-Producer to Musical Director as well as vocal and instrumental performance for local favorites such as Alex Bevan and Pat Dailey . (click here for a more complete discography and resume) More recently I returned to Kent State University where I completed their BA and MFA theatre programs and have since been teaching theatre criticism, theatre survey, and sound design and technology classes both at the KSU main campus and the regionals.

    As you can tell from this site, there are a number of sound, music, and entertainment services I now provide. Whether you need custom recorded music, theatrical sound design, or a band for your event, I'm sure there is something I can do to help. Call me at 330-677-4478 or email and lets talk.
