My First Album, Dancing My Dreams has just been released, and is now available on Itunes, Rhapsody and CDBaby. Several tracks are available for free download at Tracks have been played locally here in Humboldt County, and I have just begun distribution and radio airplay out of the area.



I once had to decide whether to be a musician who regretted not becoming an attorney or an attorney who regretted not becoming a musician. I chose the latter. I regret it. But my family probably doesn't.

My legal practice has revolved around effecting social change and representing the underdog. I now help the disabled get their disability benefits from the federal government. All the while, for 30 plus years, I have been writing songs.

Raised on rock and roll and folk music, my original music tends to the quieter, more introspective nature of folk music. Many songs are autobiographical stories. I use songs to help ease transitions and find comfort in change.

I am now over 60 and am spending much more time with my music and performing. I'd like to use these songs to help us find the inspiration to help each other pursue our dreams.
