Welcome to my website.
I am a musician living in downtown Detroit, Michigan.
I play the piano, photoplayer, and theatre pipe organ. I also accompany silent movies. My true passion is mechanical music, be it a small music box to a large fairground organ, or a dance organ.
I will do my best to keep this web site updated with upcoming events that I will be a part of.
My day-to-day job has me working in the Operations department of Olympia Entertainment, part of Ilitch Holdings, in downtown Detroit, MI. As part of that job, I am the house organist at the Fox Theatre in Detroit, playing the largest-remaining original Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organs. I also am the head tour guide at the theatre. You can also catch me at Joe Louis Arena helping out there periodically, as well as at Hockeytown Cafe & City Theatre where I handle all of the paperwork for the operation of the theatre and restaurant. I am going on my 25th year of being there, and love every second of it.
I am available for concerts on either the theatre organ or a photoplayer. Concerts can be tailored to your needs, and can be just music, or they can include silent movies, both short features and full-length movies.
Contact me by e-mail for more information. My e-mail address is at the bottom of the page.
