I'm a BMI-affiliated songwriter, but nothing's published yet. *sniff*



Music's been in my life since the 4th grade (clarinet!), but my songwriting didn't get going till my early 20's. I grew up listening to my Dad play jazz standards on the piano, so that's where my passion for music started.

I write songs that mean something to me, then hope for them to become successful through established artists. I would prefer to end up with 50 songs that I really liked and a bowl of ramen rather than one that I wrote just to sell out for a bunch of money. Then again, how much money are we talking about?

My influences are really wide-spread, from Oscar Peterson to Tom Petty. Also up top: Steely Dan, Mark Knopfler, Larry Carlton, Art Tatum, Vladmir Horowitz.

Biggest fantasy? Have a song of mine placed in a movie. I could pretty much just throw myself off a bridge at that point.
