My Elevator Pitch

I'm a stay-at-home dad but I've been writing, recording and performing my songs for over 25 years.

I'm a singer-songwriter. I did it full-time in the 1990s. I headlined places like Club Passim, Caffe Lena, Cafe Carpe, Eddie's Attic, Skidmore College, WPI and Illinois Wesleyan University. I co-billed and shared writers-in-the-round nights with folks like Kristian Bush, Dar Williams, Peirce Pettis, Ron Sexsmith and Carrie Newcomer. I opened for legends like Richard Thompson, Loudon Wainwright III and Peter Case. I co-founded End Construction Productions with Ellis Paul, Jim Infantino and Brian Doser. I released two solo albums.

I lead a band called The Loomers. We've performed at esteemed places like The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Fenway Park, The Knitting Factory, CBGBs, and Berklee College of Music. We once backed John Mellencamp. We won the Jury Prize at Berklee College of Music's Battle of the Executive Bands a couple of times and were finalists in the Fortune Magazine Battle of the Corporate Bands. We've had songs appear on CBS, Cinemax, The CW, MTV, NBC, & PBS and released five albums of original music.

I also sing in cafes and bars with my wife, Heather Quay. We have a good time singing our own songs as well as some pop, folk and country songs from the '50s to the present -- it even pays for the babysitter sometimes!

Dig it.
