I was born in upstate New York in 1960. I started experimenting with song writing in grade school. I wrote and recorded my first song in a recording studio in 1976. In 1978 I moved to Texas and played bass in a country/rock band. In 1981 I recorded my first songs in Nashville with former Elvis drummer DJ Fontana. I moved to Nashville in 1983 and lived there for six years. I worked in Television as a producer and editor. I also hosted a cable show called "Writers Night" with Buc Williams. I moved back to upstate New York in 1989 for family reasons and continued to visit Nashville. I was in the process of getting a recording deal in 1991 when I was hit by tractor-trailer on the thruway. I was laid up for several years and underwent several back surgeries. Due to my injuries the recording contract fell through. Currently I own my own audio/video production company and am writing songs again. I have had placements on the soap opera The Young and the Restless, The Tucker Carlson Show, and s

I was born in Western New York not far from Niagara Falls. I began writing at a very young age. My first professional recording was produced by Elvis Drummer DJ Fontana. My song, Marryin' Mary Ann was a featured national release on CDX. I've had songs recorded by signed artists The Kentucky Linemen, The Big Time Party Band and several other independent artists. I currently have several songs either on hold or under consideration by national recording artists and am working on productions for TV and film and TV ads with some top professionals in Nashville.
