I came to Chicago from Connecticut in 1984 to attend Northwestern University and earned a degree in Communications. After 3 years working in public relations for companies like Leo Burnett Co., I opted out of PR to pursue my real passion—music. Now I am making my home near Miami, where I'm performing at several restaurants and hotels after a 2-month working vacation playing my way through Spain and the Canary Islands. I made my mark in Chicago (hence, my “Chicago Piano Man” nickname) — before heading south to the Miami area, I had the pleasure of singing and performing at Chicago’s hottest spot for live music, The Redhead Piano Bar, for more than 20 years… nowhere else in Chicago did I get to connect on such an intimate level with the crowd, and perform as great a variety of music styles and artists (they make a great martini too!). I also spent years playing at several of Chicago’s greatest steakhouses — Mastro’s, Chicago Chop House and Magnum’s to name a few. Other nightclubs and restaurants I’ve been featured at include Seasons 52 in Oakbrook, Chicago and Schaumburg; Evanston’s Rhythm Room,and Rush Street’s Hugos’s Frog Bar, where the atmosphere made any after-dinner meet-up a memorable one.
In addition to playing the usual piano-bar fodder (“Piano Man”, “Brown-Eyed Girl”, “Tiny Dancer”, “Sweet Caroline”, Sinatra…) I love to go off the grid and play deep-track classic rock covers, dabble in country, Broadway, jazz and, especially, feature the newest in contemporary or alternative like Dave Matthews, Train, Jason Mraz, and more. Of course, I love to be challenged by a request for an old Nat King Cole swing song, or a vintage I-bet-you-don’t-know-this-one by Billy or Elton.
