I began playing Irish music on the penny whitle with Bill Ochs in early 1980’s. I picked up the simple system Irish flute in 1994 with Jack Coen, then Mike Rafferty in 1995 and Jimmy Noonan in Boston in 1999. I moved back to New York in 2004 and began playing in a trad band off and on in 2008. I currently play at the Cuckoo’s Nest in Woodside, NY and the Landmark Tavern in Hell’s Kitchen. I attend Catskills Irish Music Fest from time to time.
