I have a John Denver tribute show that was endorsed by Annie Denver. My other tribute show is “Storytellers”, which features the music of Cat Stevens, Gordon Lightfoot, Jim Croce, James Taylor, John Denver, and others.
I recently performed with Renee Armand and Rick Armand in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with our new show: "Lost Love Lounge" at The Palm Cabaret in March of 2022.
I also perform from the Great American Songbook, for upscale parties and events, on both piano and jazz guitar. I performed for the Miss California pageant for multiple years.
American Pie, Here Comes the Sun, Annie's Song, Rocky Mountain High, Danny's Song, Killing Me Softly, The Girl From Ipanema, Fly Me to the Moon, The Way You Look Tonight, Wichita Lineman, Wicked Game, Operator, The Dance, Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown, Gentle On My Mind, I Got A Name, If You Could Read My Mind, Everybody's Talkin', and many others.
I'm an accomplished guitarist, pianist, vocalist, and overall musician. I've been playing guitar since I was 9 years old, beginning with classical and then teaching myself different styles. I am also adept at performing American Standards on jazz guitar. I am proficient on the piano and bass as well, but my first and truest love will always be guitar. I perform regularly, solo and with different bands. My shows have sold out theaters in Colorado, Tennessee, California, Massachusetts, and Mexico. I have also headlined with Renee Armand and her brother, guitarist Rick Armand. I have many years o ... f recording studio experience and I am also a talented orchestrator.

The experience I provide for any given booking depends on the booking itself. My performance at funerals differs very greatly from one you will see when I perform at a wedding or party. For performances I have given onstage, people who have attended often tell me that they were moved to tears more than once during the show, and that the way I presented the music evoked emotions they didn't expect to feel.
I have headlined, along with Renee Armand, in two sold out shows at The Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tennessee. I have performed my tribute shows, "Country Roads: The Music of John Denver," and "Storytellers: The music of the 70s Folk Rock Scene," in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico at The Red Room Theatre, The Palm Cabaret, Incanto Theatre, Luna Lounge and The Tree House Bar and Grill in Bucerias, Mexico. I also performed the John Denver show In Ajijic, Mexico. I headlined at The Bennett Farm Concert Series in Massachusetts in 2015. My John Denver tribute show was featured in Aspen, Colorado at the
... John Denver Celebration in 2015.
In New York City I have worked as a composer/lyricist, as well as musician, for several theatre projects, including "Dillinger: Public Enemy Number One," "Fetish," and "Carmilla" working with playwright, Joel Gross, and directors Wayne Cilento, Sergio Trujillo, Gabriel Barre, Michael Unger, and music directors Phil Reno and Jim Abbott. My musicals have been staged in New York at The York Theatre, The Dramatist Guild, Ripley Greier Studios, and The Duke at New 42nd Studios. Lou Diamond Phillips starred as John Dillinger in my musical "Dillinger" in 2009 at The York Theatre and I served as his personal assistant.
I have performed for The Miss California Pageant several times, as well as countless private events through the years.
