I'm a songwriter, but also an everyday working musician. I play in several bands - probably too many - for anybody who will listen.

It was in Nashville that I began writing songs. Mostly for myself at first – embarrassingly bad first-timer’s poetry – but I wasn’t to be deterred. I could sing, I could play guitar, I figured I should write my own songs as well. Everyone should try it, musician or not, you find out interesting things about yourself.

After three years in Nashville, I was off to New York City, where every musician has a dream to chase. I believe I lived mine. During my five years there, I recorded my first all original album, For Those In Orbit, composed a film score for an independent movie, toured the United States and Australia, and produced albums for Joe Thompson and Julie Foster.

I once bought a 30 days rail pass on Amtrak, traveling coast to coast just playing open mic performances. Ask me about that sometime.
