I have been performing for over 30 years and have appeared onstage in both theatre and concert venues across the United States and Europe. With my initial roots in the Chicago theatre scene, I appeared in several Stephen Sondheim musicals which paved the way to a year long national tour of “Into the Woods.” In 1993 I was cast in the Minneapolis production of Forever Plaid. Singing tight harmony for almost two years with the show inspired me to form my own vocal group. “Three Hits and a Miss” toured the country for many years, bringing our 1940’s style tight harmony to nearly every state of the country.
I’ve recorded several CD’s including, “I’m Wishing” and “Wonderland.” With Three Hits and a Miss, recorded, “Sentimental Star” and I co-produced and recorded, “Sing Sing Swing,” “Christmas Presence” and “Mixing it Up.”
I have produced and performed in several solo shows, a wonderful production of “The Music Man” at the Paramount Theatre and currently you can find me singing at Chicago’s famous “Green Mill” with the Alan Gresik Swingshift Orchestra.
In 2007, along with my partner, Jason Paul Smith, I co-founded “Three Cat Productions,” producing several shows including the performance series, “Three Cat Thursdays.” I wrote lyrics and special comedy material for Three Cats, “Mister Kelly’s.”
In addition to my performing career, I also work as a Senior Visual Designer at IBM.
Recently I debuted my holiday show, “Wonderland: 364 Days til Christmas,” and wrote and performed a show for Three Cats Solo Festival, “Bob Fred,” which is a collection of autobiographical stories. Currently I am collaborating with Gary Gimmestad on a new musical, “Park Bench.”
