Influences are: Dan Fogelberg, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Phil Keggy, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, others. "I am content. I love to reflect, read, write and sing. Writing songs about every day life has taught me that even my life is of great importance. Everything, everyone, all experiences have a purpose. This is what my music reflects...simple thoughts of some importance."
