I have always believed that the foundation for a true life consists of faith, love, trust, respect and an open heart. Of these, faith has been the guiding constant. That faith has led me to explore a personal musical expression which has culminated in the release of my debut CD. recording, GOT A DATE WITH FATE. This project is a compilation of musical standards with vibrant new arrangements by the stunningly talented pianist, composer and arranger, JON WERKING. The vocals are further supported by two extraordinary world-renowned musicians: bassist MARK EGAN and percussionist DANNY GOTTLIEB.

GOT A DATE WITH FATE launched my professional singing career. Having begun singing as a boy soprano at the age of seven with "The Little Singers" of Norwalk, Connecticut boys choir, I sang and traveled with the choir internationally for several years. As adulthood blossomed, I put my singing on hold and worked several years as a police officer for the City of Norwalk, Connecticut and then as a United States Border Patrol Agent. After retiring from law enforcement, I devoted myself to building and maintaining a successful small business in Connecticut.

Knowing that music was always beckoning, I eventually explored and committed several years to intensive vocal study in New York City. There I met and trained with vocal teacher and coach, RICHARD LISSEMORE. After years of musical preparation, GOT A DATE WITH FATE was publicly released at Danny’s Skylight Cabaret Room in New York City on June 17, 2005. That show also served as my Manhattan Cabaret Debut. Five more shows were performed at Danny’s in 2005. In 2006, shows were performed at the Iridium Jazz Club and the Metropolitan Room; both clubs located in New York City. The result of growth has led to the public release of my second CD., FATE JUST WON’T WAIT. This CD was released at Danny’s as well on December 30, 2006. A bittersweet honor of that release show was the fact of being the very last show offered at Danny’s to the New York City entertainment community after a twenty one year history.

2007 revealed a continued path of growth in performing and recording. Multiple appearances were performed at the Triad Theater and the Laurie Beechman Theater, both theaters located in New York City. The elated fruition of 2007 peaked in the public release on December 29th. of my third CD, FATE REVEALED BY DESIGN, at the Laurie Beechman to a packed theater. Thank You to all involved in sharing in this musical enlightenment and to all of the loyal people who have supported us along the way.

I sincerely hope you enjoy these compact discs and that you will enthusiastically share them with your friends and family. Thank You very much for your interest and support.
