Having worked with such world class producers as Steven Epstein (on the Grammy nominated "Swing!" Broadway Cast Album), Richard Perry, John Leventhal, Billy Mann, and David Torn, he has acquired a long list of recording credits including Carole King, Rod Stewart, Joan Osborne, Marc Cohn, Madeleine Peyroux, and Gavin DeGraw. A versatile "doubler" on acoustic and electric bass, his performance credits range from Lincoln Center's "Brazilfest" to David Krakauer's "Klezmer Madness", jazz vocal group Manhattan Transfer to singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash, and Tony Award winning Broadway shows to Motown's The Fifth Dimension. Through his "Scrumptious Music" production company, he has engineered recordings for various artists, composed and produced music for Jingles/Film/Internet, and released his own singer-songwriter album "Live Love Leave" which intimately showcases not only his abilites on vocals and a variety of musical instruments, but also his poetic lyrics and often atypical string quartet arrangements. When not touring with Rod Stewart or others, he can be found most Friday evenings playing in the "Birdland Big Band", an exciting and modern group named after the legendary NYC jazz club where they perform.
He has taught for the University of the Arts, Swarthmore College, NYC Bass Collective, Sam Ash Music Institute (Manhattan), and NARAS' "Grammy in the Schools" program, and is a member of Local 802 of the American Federation of Musicians.
