About

I play piano, make music and video. 

I was a freelance musician in Los Angeles playing for theater or in bands.


I recorded Dreaming (1993), a piano-bass-drums album of mostly jazz standards, and What We Have (2005), an album where I composed in mainstream jazz styles.

In 2010 I began performing three-four nights a week with my own group in a trendy Beverly Hills restaurant.  We developed our collective voice performing recent pop and indie music. Doing cover songs was important for our work and I enjoyed playing because the songs were reaching people or moving people so well.  

During this time I recorded The Best of All Possible Worlds (2011) and Rocket Science (2012), both trio albums with mostly cover songs either well-known or obscure.  Both albums were successful on American and Canadian radio stations.  I traveled to Scotland to perform in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

I emigrated to Germany in 2013.  Life in California had become more difficult after the 2007 subprime mortgage crisis and I was seeking a better quality of life.  Life in Berlin was good and I enjoyed learning German but my performing never became what it had been.  Emigrating felt like a good decision but life with little performance felt meaningless and I experienced depression.  I also found writing and recording with complaining neighbors quite discouraging and it seemed impossible to find a suitable space for recording.

I returned to California to record Chromakey Dreamcoat, and a further album. Something stopped me from going further with these and I have yet to officially release either of them.  

During the Corona time in 2020 I rented a suitable recording space and started “remixing” using music and videos from other artists available through creative commons as a basis.  Their response was positive and led to further collaborations.  Video was edited or filmed to go with each recording and uploaded to YouTube.  Music without video has begun to feel incomplete to me, so I’ve become a YouTube artist.
