Hey. Thanks for visiting. I’m a singer, pianist, improviser, songwriter, arranger, some have called me “composer,” fiddler, teacher, etc. I grew up playing classical piano and got my degree in it at Juilliard. The classical scene wasn’t for me though; as a pianist it was too isolating, competitive, without enough outlets to communicate with people and especially to be creative. I threw myself into Irish music for a number of years, learning a bunch of instruments and re-forging my way of thinking about music, humanity, and the world. At the same time I was playing background piano gigs around NYC, figuring out how to improvise in front of people. Now I’m still improvising and enjoy helping others find their path.
