(I Guarantee You'll Be Grinning From Ear To Ear).

Biography
For 30+ years - my productions, mixes and compositions are always delivered early and under-budget. I guarantee it.

Whether you are an artist, agent, record label or sound library exec, CxO of an entertainment conglomerate, or dedicated student looking for a mentor - I deliver with respect, integrity and honesty. There's no technical-mumbo-jumbo - just simple, straight-forward authenticity, coupled with practical solutions. 

Look no further and ring me up now at:
+1 561 206 2160.

You'll wonder why it took you so long to find me. Most of all, you'll be glad you made the call.
After having been nominated in two GRAMMY® categories, and as a proud member of both BMI, AFM and the RIAA - I'm fortunate to work with A-List entertainers and up and coming stars – including some of the biggest names in the entertainment and business world: Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson, Lindsey Buckingham, 3M, Goodyear and Blockbuster Video. ​​​​​

I've also honed my business acumen serving at the upper-levels of companies including Otari, NEOTEK, REP/SVC Magazine and GATE International. You can review an abridged version of my Discography here .

I've completed project work for Jeff Berlin, Russ Freeman, The Rippingtons and Eric Marienthal. In the process, my work has been featured along side of tracks and has been performed by Chick Corea, Peter Erskine and Russell Ferrante. Somehow, I’ve also managed to raise awareness and money for pediatric cancer by producing my own jazz solo albums - Sunset Key and Miracles.

All of this came at a price! Specifically, I mastered my performance, engineering and production skills with degrees from the University of Miami School of Music and College of Engineering. I like to think that my easy-going style is balanced by my ever-increasing love of all things technical and creative.

Lastly, I'm equally at home in recording, mixing and mastering studios working on major and independent projects. You can contact me directly at here .
