Summary

I am currently seeking employment in the music industry. I have decades of experience in a variety of settings, entertaining tourists at resorts in Florida, Las Vegas, and throughout the Caribbean. My trademark wit and fast paced show tempos make me an excellent choice for bandleader, sideman/arranger or just plain party host. I have emceed many events and contests, and I have a wide repertoire ranging from jazz to rock. 

I am also an experienced manager, designer, and sales person, with years of hands on experience dealing with high end customers and delicate situations involving tact, diplomacy and negotiating skills.
