I was born and raised on Long Island, NY. I attended Hofstra University as a Music Major and moved to Los Angeles in 1981 with my wife, Joyce, where I worked as a musician/songwriter/composer for Western International Pictures and wrote and sang the theme song "Free Again" for the feature film "Mausoleum".
After moving back to New York, I stayed in the entertainment industry as Entertainment Director for World Yacht Cruises in NYC and performed in various venues around the tri-state area. In 1992, we relocated to Boca Raton, Florida, with our 2 children. In an effort to cut back on my heavy music workload, I started a job with Professional Insurance Underwriters as an auditor. Within months, I managed the audit department and eventually worked through the ranks to underwriter and eventually Marketing Rep.
I joined Normandy in 2015 as a Senior Field Underwriter/Marketing Rep. My years of experience in all facets of workers compensation is a valuable asset when I assist my agents on any issues.
Today, I still manage to balance both a music career and an insurance career. I still perform and am a member of ASCAP as a published songwriter and I have 14 CD's to date available on all streaming platforms.
