I was born on Long Island; Syosset to be exact (don't hold that against me). I have spent a great deal of my life playing music, making up stories and talking. My parents say the minute I started talking was the minute after the final minute the world knew what silence was.
Early on, I found that it was easier to make things up and tell stories if I used technology; so I began to use technology. My first hard disk recorder was the Roland VS-880. It had one gig of memory and I used a zip drive to store my music--it was heaven--digital heaven.
Despite my love of all things digital, I remain an analogue dude; employing solid foods for sustenance and real clothing to keep me warm.
My baldness is an asset. It has served me since I was 20 years old.
I still like to make music and embark on other strange missions; but at a point, I decided a career would proably be a good idea.
Here is what I currently use as my professional bio:
