I am a singer songwriter interested in writing for other artists, television, commercials, plays, shorts and films. I have years of experience performing (rock bands, blues bands, country bands, jazz bands, theatre, plays) but prefer writing and composing. I am an accomplished pianist and am an intermediate guitarist. I am capable and creative writing in many genres. I typically compose songs solo, but I have no qualms against working with others to raise and perfect a song. I also compose instrumentals. I was born in Chicago but now live on the Central Coast of California. Will travel; have no problem with that. I studied jazz piano and have choreographed many dancers in bands and theater groups. I have many inspirations from Joni Mitchell to Ber. Nina Simone to Taylor Swift. Leonard Cohen to Luke Combs. There are so many inspirational performers and writers. I have much material ready to go, much more than an album's worth, all polished and perfected (in my humble :) opinion). As I began here, I am primarily interested in writing for other artists and shows. I am very much into making videos, too.
