Celebrated songwriter Jon Aldrich said, "It is quite obvious that here is a man who is driven to write commercial songs that have radio potential. He's got the gift! He's a natural." He has been in the music business for over 13 years, participating in many different aspects. He has been band leader/music director of several popular Boston bands, and a talented instrumentalist in many more, including several years as a keyboardist in the renowned production of Black Nativity.
