I love great storytelling and I am a sucker for great vocals. I am a David Gray, Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohen fan. The common theme is the picture painting in the writing and the organic nature of song production. I really love teaching and mentoring writers, especially young people. Every year I do writers week at the local high school and my emphasis is on creativity and getting emotions out on paper. I also wear the music biz hat in helping the West Coast Songwriters. It has been my university for music and I am so grateful to have been involved all these years. But the music business has changed dramatically and it will be interesting to meet the challenges in helping up and coming writers and artists.
I am a performing songwriter. Strengths are songwriting and vocals ala Shawn Colvin. I play house concerts and have played at the Cannery in SF and the Mountain Winery. I also mentors writers and served as president of West Coast Songwriters.
