What instrument(s) do you use to write your music?

Banjo, Ukulele

What comes easier for you - words or music?

I write both words and music. Generally the words are the easiest part, but if I have one really difficult piece of the puzzle holding me up, it's usually the words.

Do you imagine yourself or someone else performing your songs?

Myself. But I would be flattered if someone wanted to perform something I wrote.

Are you interested in collaboration or finding a songwriting partner?

I'm interested in collaboration. I feel able to express myself as a writer so I don't necessarily feel like I need a partner, but I'm open to sharing ideas and getting feedback and if good collaboration developed into a longer term relationship, I'm for it.

What areas of your music experience are you wanting to improve? e.g. songwriting, marketing, networking, recording, airplay, gigs, etc.

songriting, networking, gigs


I started writing songs in elementary.school. My interest has gone from rock to tin pan alley. The more I play, the older I like the source--I'd love to write a really good Joplin-insipred rag some day, but I'd settle for a good tear-jerker.

What Michael A. is saying about this Meetup Group

I'm amazed how many people are writing music in Seattle. Getting to know some folks--this is a good way to share our passion.
