Reviewer

Born in 1964, my Father was a great jazz musician so I grew up listening to what a real piano sounds like every day. I became a rock bass and guitar player in my teens, I played in a band for 10 years before declaring art my true calling. I have been married and living in NYC for 18 years with my wife, and my two sons Jake 10, Jordan 6. Of course, after receiving my first REAL paycheck, I went straight to the local high-end shop and simply signed it over to them. There have been many twists and turns, more dead ends than I care to admit, but the evolution of my system has landed me in the enviable spot of out growing my nervosa. I am very happy with the sound I have but remain infinitely curious of all things audio. My getting into the audio journalism world happened quite by accident. A chance encounter at an audio salon with a writer quickly cured into a fast friendship. His encouragement led to my submision of a review and the rest is history. Over the last 15 years my work has appeared in Ultimate Audio, Ultra Audio.com, StereoTimes.com and The Absolute Sound.
