I am a professional musician and singer/songwriter with  more than 25 years of teaching experience.

My specialty is guitar, and I also teach piano, bass, drums, vocal, and songwriting.

I write and perform original music with my band The Electric Farm.   Venues I have played include Godfrey Daniels, Musikfest, Sellersville Theater, Landhaven Bed & Breakfast, World Cafe, and the storied CBGB.

My music has also been featured in television and film projects.

Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Famer Peter Buck of REM played mandolin on my first recordings made at John Keane Studios in Athens, Georgia.

The song “Shabby Girl” was included in an episode of  ONE TREE HILL and the movie DRIVE ME CRAZY starring Adrian Grenier (20th Century Fox)

“Unspoken Love” was featured in  NUMB3RS (Guns & Roses episode)

“Wild River” was integral to the indie film SPEARFISH

“Thinkin’ ‘Bout My Friend” was part of the Fox premiere of the show DRIVE

Both myself and my song “Lookin” were part of  WHERE LEGENDS ARE MADE — an independent documentary on Godfrey Daniels — the venerable Bethlehem, PA coffeehouse and a popular performance venue for the band.

The song “Man of the Town” — a favorite of Philly folk icon Gene Shay — first appeared on Philadelphia Phast Pholks cd compilation from FAST FOLK magazine, a NY-based talent antenna who were the first to record music notables like Shawn Colvin and John Gorka.

I was selected to perform in the Tri-Centric Showcase at the 2007 NERFA (Northeast Regional Folk Alliance) conference.

My first CD, Six was among “Top Philly Band Picks” by WXPN Program Director Bruce Warren.

The band’s second CD Boomschlang Viper Story ranked #1 on the CMJ charts on WNTI in Hackettstown, NJ.

The third, self-titled CD received lots of airplay on stations such as WDIY in Bethlehem and WXPN in Philadelphia.

The most recent album Unglued is a somewhat dreamy collection that represents the band’s first leanings toward a cohesive theme with an autobiographical thread. Each song delivers a musical short story which together create an immersive experience that both touches on mysteries of the universe as well as the search for self.
