A recent article from the Tallahassee Democrat:
As a keyboard performer and vocalilst I've performed in various venues throughout the U.S. and overseas as a keyboardist and vocalist with showbands, top 40 and jazz units.
During my military career, I was fortunate to be chosen for 2 tours circumnavigating South America and touring West Africa with the widely acclaimed U.S. Navy Showband. Additionally I was selected to perform in a special unit for the APOLLO XI recovery aboard the U.S.S. Hornet.
Upon retiring from the military after 24 years in both the U.S. Navy music program and the Florida Army National Guard (13th Army Band), I resided and performed in the Tampa Bay and Fort Myers and Tallahassee areas.
Performance venues include various lounges, country clubs and resorts including the resort hotels at Downtown Disney, Fun Kruz, The Entertainer Casino, and SeaKruz in Ft. Myers Beach, and Scandanavian World Cruise Line's Scandanavian Sun, and Solo Piano, vocalist, and piano bar entertainer, at The Lodge at Wakulla Springs, Florida.
