I’m a piano/ keyboard player who loves all styles of music, with an emphasis on improvisation. I also compose, arrange, produce and engineer. I enjoy taking chances and constantly evolving.
I graduated from Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music in 1994, with a Bachelors in Jazz Studies, after which I played in the show band for Premier Cruise lines for 2 years.
In 1997, I moved to Las Vegas, where I currently reside. While in Vegas, I’ve been fortunate to play with some of the best musicians anywhere. Don’t be fooled! You may see them playing a magic show, but when they’re in their natural habitat-look out!!! I worked with Sheena Easton as Musical Director and performed with countless headliners and Broadway shows on the strip. I've also had many years of steady Jazz engagements at the Bellagio Hotel Resort. Being immersed in so many musical styles has made me valuable as a session player. I am currently Musical Director for Terry Fator, America’s Got Talent’s season 2 winner. We are celebrating our tenth year at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in 2019.
Here are a few projects I did for Terry Fator. You can see why he's doing so well!!! He's amazing!!!
I've been working with Terry Fator since shortly after he won America's Got Talent in 2007. It's a perfect gig for me, since I get to use all of my skills and gain new ones as needed. I get to arrange, conduct, compose and most recently mix and master his Christmas DVD. Here are a few of my favorite projects we did outside of the regular show.
