I am a professional performing and recording musician living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I lead a popular polka-variety band committed to preserving the traditional sounds that made Milwaukee famous. I also write and produce music in other genres.

I grew up in a household full of highly-accomplished musicians, including a church organist, jazz bassists, and a heavy metal drummer. I started playing the piano when I was just tall enough to see over the keyboard, received my first drum set when I was ten years old, started taking tuba lessons in the 4th grade, picked up the bass guitar in the 7th grade, and somewhere in the middle of all that, I began playing the accordion.

I officially started my musical career at age eleven, occasionally playing drums with a dixieland band. In 1986 at the age of sixteen, I joined my first polka band, and remained with them for twenty years. During that time, I became involved with several other bands in the Milwaukee area and also started up my own band.

In 1990, I opened a home-based recording studio called Polkasound Productions. For the next 30 years, my studio provided audio and graphic design services to musicians and business in the Milwaukee area. Today Polkasound Productions is a developer of polka-oriented virtual instruments for computer-based musicians and composers.
