About

Bio

My first love is not feet, believe it or not. It's music. I play piano and bassoon, and began my college education at Syracuse University as a music theory and composition major. I've had several works performed publicly and still write music and play piano. When I'm not between feet and notes, I enjoy hiking, fly fishing, photography and gardening. Here in Staten Island, we have an incredible network of hiking trails in the Greenbelt, and I've been hiking those trails for the last 30 years. In fact... my feet are killing me!
