I have been fortunate that throughout my adult life, music has touched all that I’ve done as both a working professional and a creative artist. Since graduating High School it has been my good fortune that every job I’ve held has had some musical component to it.
The lion’s share of my professional experience has been in the Sales & Marketing of Music: half a dozen years in Music Retail (1976 – 1982); 28 years (1982 – 2010) with the same company (Polygram / Universal) in the Recording Industry in Sales & Marketing; and for the last 8 years, working in non-profit broadcast Media (Newark Public Radio, Inc. / WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM), first in marketing, then development, most recently as the Director of Individual Giving.
During the last part of my career as Senior Director of Marketing for Verve Records, I was the in-house producer of various visual marketing tools including: Music Videos; EPK’s; Bonus content for CD releases; promotional videos and Television & Radio spots.

I have also had experience as a Producer, working in various capacities on several jazz recording projects with Jane Ira Bloom and with the Wolff/Clark Expedition.
I recently Co-Produced pianist/composer Michael Wolff’s first ever Solo Piano album, Zenith and just finished recording Michael’s new Trio project, which I’m also Producing.
