  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: Musically, almost 30 years. Professionally, 20 years. I was a child prodigy pianist starting out playing Bela Bartok at age 5. Studied strictly classical piano until around age 10 when i started improvising over Rachminoff and Beethoven, which led me to also study jazz and improvisation. I started playing professionally as a solo pianist in restaurants and hotel lobby's at age 14. I got my bachelors degree in Jazz Studies at Western Michigan University and then moved to NYC where I have been the last 12 years working professionally full time as a musician, producer, and teacher. I won 1st place in an international piano competition which earned me a grand piano, which i used to start a performance space and studio in Brooklyn NY, where I have worked as a producer and composer for upwards of 50 artists. Also, I have toured and performed virtually across the globe in iconic halls and venues with jazz and pop artists.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Eclectic, musically rich with an element of surprise.

  25. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  26. A: At the moment Bruno Mars, as I feel we would compliment each other musically very well. I appreciate his immense talents, and you can tell how advanced he is by how simple his songwriting is.

  33. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  34. A: Realness, Authenticity, Innovation, Beauty.

  35. Q: What's your typical work process?

  36. A: I'm a big picture thinker, so first I start by trying to learn about the intention of the artist/client. From there I'll know where to go style-wise to be able to bring out what they are looking for musically and texturally. I am more of an artist rather than a formulaic worker, so there is no "typical" process with me..as every situation is different, every song is different, and every person is different in the way they work, so I try to create a flow and forward momentum by catering my expertise to the artist/client.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I have a beautiful 6-foot Kawai Grand Piano, '73 Fender Rhodes Suitcase, Korg Triton Workstation, Roland Juno, a BUNCH of VST's.. Logic Pro X 10.5, Neuman TLM103 mics, AKG Perception mics, SM57s, Roland Keyboard amps, Plethera of Guitar and Bass Amps.

  39. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  40. A: An iconic producer to me is Quincy Jones, whom I identify with mostly, in that we have very similar trajectories. However I'm inspired by any "producers" who are well versed in the actual art-form and theory of music itself, as well as the technological component. I believe that music is truly transcendent beyond what we even think we know to be true..and that to be masterful, one must have a solid structure/base and know the entire landscape, from fundamentals, to the understanding of how harmony creates emotions, to rhythms of the world, to spacial perception, to contemporary application.

  41. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  42. A: Taking a rough voice memo vocal idea, and developing the perfect complimentary musical landscape. Pianistically and/or Compositionally.
