Cary loves music and you can see it on his face. Originally from the New York/New Jersey area, he has spent the last 20 years teaching & performing around the globe. He fell in love with Brazilian music while living there for a year before finally “finding home” on the enchanting island of Kaua’i where he has been living since 2007. He lives with his wife Wendy and their two cats, Harry Potter and Jazzy.
A Berklee College of Music graduate, Cary was awarded the “most outstanding percussionist” award. He has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Kevin Cronin (REO Speedwagon), David Pack (Ambrosia), Makana, Michael Ruff, Lionel Ritchie and others.
Cary is very involved with sharing his passion of music and life with children on Kaua’i. He collaborates with the Lotus Arts Foundation in schools throughout Hawai’i in the “Artist in the Schools (AITS) Residency Program” and the “Russell da Rooster” children’s TV show. Cary is also an author, speaker and relationship coach for couples & singles. His latest book, co-authored with his wife Wendy, is: In Love Forever — 7 Keys to a Joyous Juicy Relationship.
