I have led a rich, double life for the past thirty-five years. Those who know me understand that I have a passion for excellence and achievement in all that I do. As a touring and recording concert artist, my discipline, focus and high expectations have enabled me to perform at Carnegie Hall, The Smithsonian Institution, The JFK Center for the Performing Arts and a special invitation to perform at the White House. In addition, I am a two-time National Endowment for the Arts Fellow and I enjoy continuing involvement with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and the Library of Congress.

As an advisor, I partner with clients in 22 states.

Community participation

My passion for arts has led to a long relationship with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, WNED-FM, The Guitar Foundation of America, Chamber Music America and I am a member of the Alice Tully Circle of Lincoln Center.

I also consult on a volunteer basis for the Library of Congress , the Hispanic Heritage Council and the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo.
