"I started formally studying music at three years of age with the Suzuki Piano Method and have since studied Jazz guitar under Brian Baker at the New York City Guitar School, Kapsalis Music in Chicago, jazz theory at Brookdale Music School in Chicago and jazz theory at the New York Guitar School in Manhattan. As a performer of over 35 instruments today,  I have recorded on hundreds of sessions but am also a conservatory graduated audio engineer having worked with Maroon 5, Lil' Wayne, Al Green, Joss Stone and many more. My personal EP's and LP's are available on iTunes here or on the many music apps out there on the web.

     I have over 20 years teaching experience as well. CreativityNy.com also provides music licensing opportunities here through our BMI affiliated company, Joshua's Javelin Music BMI and educational services through RandomActsOfSongs.orgUrbanArtBeat.org.and now serving on the board of the Queens Public Library. Whether you're looking for a tracking/mix engineer or a session musician, we are your one stop shop for everything creative.  Please find out certifications and gear lists below.
