Creative Statement


In my dreams I'm acting/singing on the still-thriving, 2nd Avenue, Yiddish Theater, and entertainment still only happens live!

I can't explain the joy that overcomes me when I'm acting on stage, singing in a jazz club and or entertaining in community centers. I also find it in leading liturgical prayer, occasionally teach Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons - and I hope all of this is helping to improve the world.
