Biography

I started out wanting to be a rock and roll drummer in 4th grade but my drum teacher was the high school orhcestra director and he convinced me somehow to play the violin instead! When I was in college I heard the legendary French jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli. In 1983 my first album "In a Fog" was released by Flying Fish records. I've been touring and recording with my jazz groups blending the swing and blues of the 40's with the rock music I grew up with in the 60's ever since.
