About Me:

I have a music production/engineering career that spans 30 years with over 35 international Gold and Platinum record awards to my credit. The Grammy and Juno nominated artists I have worked with include David Bowie, Duran Duran, Billy Idol, Boy George, YES, Joan Jett, Cameo, Kool & The Gang to name a few. My Canadian productions have included I Mother Earth, 2 Platinum albums for The Headstones, The Killjoys, Burton Cummings (The Guess Who) Platinum solo effort, Up Close & Alone and many more. Check out for my full discography and showreel. Originally from Brooklyn, NYC, I began my career at AIR Studios in London, under the tutelage of Sir George Martin, the producer of the Beatles. My first major engineering assignment; Carly Simon's No Secrets included, You're So Vain, and would become my very first engineering credit. YES, I do know who its about... I am presently at the helm of the Attack Group of Companies, an independent media company signing emerging artists along with film & DVD content internationally. Attack's music publishing division is 50% owned by one of the world's largest independent music publishers, Cherry Lane Music (Black Eyed Peas, John Legend, The Passion of the Christ, Elvis Presley, John Denver). Our music can be heard on MTV, ESPN, Dawson's Creek, America's Most Wanted, Roswell and many more along with films such as Poolhall Junkies (Chrisopher Walken), Harvard Man (Sarah Michelle Geller), the controversial urban Gang Tapes, the upcoming Jimmy & Judy starring Edward Furlong (The Terminator) & Rachael Bella (The Ring) and The Making of The Matrix Reloaded to name a few. Attack's most recent success is the Kanye West produced Malik Yusef album, which can be heard on the hit MTV soundtrack, Coach Carter starring Samuel L. Jackson. I am the executive producer of Graffiti Television and recently completed executive producing The Writing on the Wall, a 90-minute documentary on Graffiti. My latest venture includes, an interactive website for filmmakers & music supervisors to easily source music for any film, television show, radio/tv commercial or DVD project. client ACM Music, has placed "I Love Doing Texas With You" by the late Tom Wesselmann into the critically acclaimed, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. The film directed by Ang Lee has already won 6 Golden Globe Awards along with 3 Academy Awards for Best Music, Best Screenplay & Best Director. Every few months I hit the road with my Lecture & Workshop series to speak at some of the most prestigious universities, colleges and technical schools in the world like OIART (Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology) and Seneca College talking about my position as producer/engineer/A&R scout combined with my role as president/CEO of a fledgling media company.
