About Me

I was born in New Jersey in 1967 one summer morning, just an ordinary 3rd generation American brought into this world. At age 7 I started playing piano then onto violin and at age 10 electric guitar. At age 13 I was lucky to work on the first personal computer programming pascal and my second electric guitar a Fender Stratocaster spending countless hours doing great things. By age 13 I also wrote my first song acoustic guitar and sax with a neighbor Chris Rouse ( hope he still has the analog tape ), jammed with my best friends Dave, Chris, Jeff, and Edmund playing songs from U2, INXS, RUSH, Van Halen, Billy Idol, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Santana, The Kinks, The Stones etc. We used to have almost weekly parties at Dave's garage and I remember playing You Really Got Me, Satisifaction on my shitty amp in front of some hot girls Tracy and Missy. Those were such great times. I performed in my teenage and early 20s and by age 18 had my first copyright. I have been fortunate to have met some legendary people in my early days and have spent my life up until now crafting my own unique perspectives on life. I recognized at an early age that after years of hard effort it is best to abandon the chains that bind ones own creative space and embark on a unique experience. That is why I refused shortly after I turned 20 to ever play a copy again. I took the dive in deep and reached beyond this universe in my experience and have created a style that is my own with great thanks to all of the eclectic influences of my past. Everyday I look at life as best I can with a fresh lens and absorb as much as it can give. I love meeting

who know that life is nothing more than experience and perception. I have acquired many skills over the past half a century and am proud of and all of its capabilities. It is the culmination of my passions up until now. Technology, music, writing, film and digital art. I am a true scientist and experiment almost every day each and every year pushing the envelope of what can be done with audio, video, web and print.

Why to choose me?

I am an organized, creative, passionate person who enjoys creating great things.

Whether it is a web site, photograph or piece of digital art, custom program, music composition, short film, poem, or short story I combine the skills I have acquired over the past 40 years to create something that stands out from the crowd.

Here is my vision.

I have a unique outlook on life. I feel that life is experience, good, bad, ugly and spectacular. Actually at 50 I don't like qualifying an experience with adjectives and prefer to just experience life as pure as it can be experienced. I am connected with nature and this planet both physically and emotionally. All the things I create have no limits. I do not censor my art or close my mind to new ideas. I read writings from centuries ago and today fusing the past and the present to create a unique perspective on why we are all here. I have created hundreds of web sites since 1998, personal and for profit. I have also created over 600 eclectic musical compositions and helped artists create great art since the mid 1980s. The best thing in life is life and all the varied experiences one can have in a single moment. I create because I love. I stand up and am counted when there is a problem that needs correcting. I look forward to collaborating with you on your next audio, visual, web or print project!
