I was born in the Bronx and grew up in New York City and Long Island. I lived in Washington, D.C. for 18 years before moving to Portland with my wife in 1991. Music has always been a big part of my life. I started collecting records a year before I had a record player. I have published five detective novels, the first of which, Served Cold, won the Shamus Award. I brought my movie review program (On The Aisle) to All Classical Portland, in addition to my Author, Author interview program. I teach occasionally and have taught courses in jazz history and the Marx Brothers’ movies.
