My MUsic

I build sets that include rock, jazz, tribal, tech and house genres.

The mix is designed to take the dancers on a journey. Properly assembled, the path we will follow is a natural progression, rising and subsiding, repeatedly.

We strive to create a sacred space for all to enjoy at every dance, carefully following the tenets of Ecstatic Dance International


I am a native San Franciscan. I live today in Las Vegas.

I enjoyed a successful Silicon Valley career as an executive and investor in high tech companies in the medical, pharma, and software fields.

In 1996, I was diagnosed with Early Onset Parkinson’s Disease. My reaction was to start a new life as a business consultant and investor.

In 2000, I joined the Keiretsu Forum, a startup-oriented investor consortium.

I mentored teen entrepreneurs at Oakland High for 4 years, thrilled to see them graduate and go on to successful careers. I am very proud of them all.

I became a Ecstatic Dance DJ in 2019 at age 65. I have enjoyed every minute of this new life. Together with Dawn (also a DJ), we operate the local Ecstatic Dance – Las Vegas.
