From Cleveland Ohio,  Started playing guitar at age 9. played with a few garage bands during Jr. high and high school.

In the late 1980's, formed the original band  ' Knightrage '   with a mellow progressive acid pop rock genre.

knightrage  had 3 releases, a single in 1985 'Endless",  a 9 song in 1991 ' Preminition ' ,  And  16 song in 2001 'What next'.

In 2011 while engaged with a re-enactment group, the ' S.C.A.',  was introduced to the sounds of Blackmore's Night. and with a suggestion from wife Sherry, started to play Blackmore's Night song's in bardic compitiotions.

And from there  we recruited other players and the  Crystal Ball Band  was formed.
