Hi! Welcome to my website! Being the face for the next generation of Polka stars is a big responsibility - one I don't take lightly. I've been playing accordion since I was 5 and performing professionally since I was 15, so I always keep my dad's band and the Polka greats like Frankie Yankovic and Walter Ostanek in mind when I'm in front of people. I already have a ton of cool projects lined up for the future and when I'm not at home in Pittsburgh saving lives as a paramedic, I'm working on all kinds of fun and exciting things, so keep checking back to find out what's next!
I recently got to talk with Dave from the Polka Podcast - the interview is here:
