My music education began with the accordion as a child. Eventually we had a band that entertained at weddings, picnics and parties. As a teenager I switched to the piano as my instrument of choice.
I was fortunate to have excellent teachers who were professional musicians and graduates of the Julliard School in New York. I accompanied choral and theater groups, entertained at various restaurants and lounges in the Chicago Area.
A career in information technology interrupted for a period of time. While on business trips to Europe, the UK, Japan and Korea I had the opportunity to entertain at various venues in between business projects.
While back home I started to entertain in local venues:
Port Edwards, The Anvil Club, Turnberry Country Club, Rahr West Art Museum are some of the venues over the last 15 years.
Home parties and business events were also some of my bookings.
