Bio:
Singer, songwriter and guitarist working at it since the age of 10. I have been fortunate to perform and record with some great writers and musicians along the way and now I enjoy seeing my kids also start down their own musical paths.

This is a great place to hear diverse artistry and also receive honest and generous feedback about songs.
