Yes. I have been working in this field since I was 16. I got my start creating artwork for apparel at a sporting goods store in Fredonia, NY. I created the graphics, ran the darkroom, created the screens and silk screened the garments. From there I attended SUNY Fredonia and received a BA in Art with a concentration in Graphic Design. I have been working in the field ever since.
What’s your favorite quote?
“Music was his life, it was not his livelihood,
It made him feel so happy, it made him feel so good,
He sang from his heart and he sang from his soul,
He did not know how well he sang, it just made him whole.
– Harry Chapin

What is something that you’re passionate about?
The Buffalo Music Hall of Fame (BMHOF) and honoring the musical legends and history of Buffalo and Western NY. I especially enjoy taking part in the BMHOF’s Musician Medics Program – a program developed to bring music to those in need. My duo partner and I have performed for our Veterans and are always very honored and humbled after the performance. Chakra always has been very supportive of this venture as performances usually take place during the lunch hour.
What is something that you’ve accomplished that you’re proud of?
I am the proud father of two very wonderful children who are grown and surviving on their own.
