‘Why we joined the union’

I joined Local 802 because I love New York music and working with other musicians! As a member of both SAG-AFTRA (I played clarinet for stalwart director Danny Strong on the set of his feature film, “Rebel in the Rye”) and Actors’ Equity, it seemed fitting that I would also join Local 802. Amidst the challenges, trials and suffering featured in the walk of life, music has always been a great medicine for me (and so many others in New York and the world). My principal instruments are keyboards, clarinet, recorder, hand percussion and voice.
