There's nothing better than writing songs. I generally pen more upbeat, pop-rock songs. However, I have been known to write instrumental and folk music, as well. I hope you enjoy the tunes. Send a note if you like them.

Just placed 3 songs with Editor's Choice Music! Woot!

Hello there!

I have been writing and performing music for over ten years. I am an international award winning songwriter (that's a really weird thing to comprehend). I take my music seriously, yet I don't take myself that seriously. I have played in a variety of bands: pop/rock, punk, new wave, jazz fusion, and country. I have been known to rock a sock off or two in my time. I tend to write Rock/Pop tunes, and I have developed a passion for recording and production. Let me know what you think!

Here's where I get to brag a bit:

"Six-String Baby," "Say Ah!," and "Say You're Sorry" licensed to Editor's Choice Muisc
