-- Freelance writer, recently published feature article in Recording Magazine

-- Growing up in Indiana, I loved music before I could walk, listening to pop from my brother and sister, and other classics from my parents. Grade school piano and trumpet lessons led to teaching myself to play guitar at age thirteen. Good times hanging out at the local guitar store helped inspire me to start my first band.

-- After high school, I became the guitarist for Scintilla, a 10 piece jazz/rock band playing covers from Glenn Miller to Chicago and Blood, Sweat & Tears. I began singing a few of the leads, and arranging songs, scoring for the other instruments. I went on to perform in Scintilla and other cover bands over the next 20 years.

-- I worked through college and qualified for a loan to buy my first Tascam recording rig. I started producing our band demos, original music, and other artists’ demos and albums. I also did some on-site concert recording and corporate audio work.

-- After college I joined the original Los Angeles Songwriters Showcase (LASS) in LA, very excited to follow in the footsteps of great songwriters like Diane Warren. Next I began traveling to Nashville as well Los Angeles, to study the craft of songwriting, pitch songs, meet publishers and attend music events. In Nashville I was lucky to see “unknowns” like Blake Shelton and Brad Paisley performing solo, just before their careers took off.

-- I've also been an active member of these organizations .... TAXI, Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), BMI, Songwriters Guild Association (SGA), and the National Academy of Songwriters (NAS).

-- My music has aired in television shows, commercials, business events, web streaming and other uses.

-- I’ve been an occasional guitarist, engineer or producer on other artists’ releases and demos.
