I am a professional Keyboardist based in New York City. I have played on songs for artists such as Keith Urban, Nick Jones, Andy Grammer, Kelsea Balerini, and many more. My focus as a session player is not just the part but the feel of the song, and this has afforded me the opportunity to play on a wide range records with top notch artists.
I have been playing piano since I was 3 years old. I am classically trained and have a bachelor's degree in jazz piano performance. I cut my teeth playing countless shows and doing recording sessions in New York City with a wide range of groups, covering genres including Jazz, Latin, Funk, R&B, Neo-soul, Country, Singer songwriter, Americana, Pop, Rock, Fusion, and Classical. I have spent last 15 years playing venues that range from arenas, to clubs, to Lincoln Center, and everything in between. When not on stage, I am lucky enough to work with some of the top producers and artists in the industry. While piano is my first love, years have been devoted to organ and synth playing, as well as creating synth sounds. My extensive experience and training gives me a wealth of knowledge, that I can draw on to best fit your needs.
