:: Latest News & Projects ::
You can catch me most Fridays playing drums and singing in the Vegas Burlesque at Pickwick & Frolic on E. 4th in Cleveland, Ohio. Check out www.facebook.com/clevelandburlesque for info on the current schedule.
:: Web Design ::
I've been designing websites since 1996 and have created over 30 websites for various artists, musicians, and independent businesses in the Cleveland area and beyond.
Below are thumbnails of a number of my website designs, which you may click to visit the actual website. Websites are dynamic works and are often altered by their owners after my work is done, and therefore the live site may no longer look like my original design, or may no longer exist. If I am aware of such a situation, clicking the thumbnail will display a full-size image of the site as it existed at original launch time.
:: Music & Audio ::
I've been creating music even longer than I've been designing websites. I studied percussion for several years as a child, learned guitar during college, and have been singing since I learned to speak. I discovered tape recorders around age 6 and went on to study audio and video production in college. I have written, recorded and performed music a good deal over the last few years.

“Rothman wins us with his charm and exuberance even while we know he has walked away from his marriage. He is a strong and able singer with a nice falsetto and a powerful voice. His combination of hubris and vulnerability is fascinating.”
“Rothman's boyish jubilation and full-bodied grin at the start of the show is endearing, but it is his talent as an actor and singer that endures from the beginning to the end (or the end to the beginning) of this play. He is remarkably comfortable and commanding on stage, which translates into a captivating performance.”
“Rothman makes the joy of a new love and the excitement of a career that’s off to a spectacular start believable.”
:: Graphic Design ::
My work with musicians, theatres and other organizations has called upon me to create graphic art from time to time. I work primarily in Adobe Photoshop, piecing together original and stock artwork into collages for advertisements and other uses. Below are a few samples of work I've done...
