February 16, 2006


Tell us about your creative side.

I love to combine words and music-- writing songs is a lifeline for me. Also: writing, photography, drawing, dancing and interpreting the events of our lives in narrative form. I also enjoy organizing communal activities-- like this one :-)

Where can we see/hear/read some of your works? Any links?

My music web-site ( ) and my blog ( ). CD's soon to be available through the music-site. If you live in the NY area, you can catch my performances-- check the web-site for details.

What do you hope to gain by participating in the culture circle?

I hope to facilitate a group where people get a chance to express aspects of their creative selves they might not otherwise get to share with other people. We're all artists-- I want to be part of a process that helps us all feel and believe that.

What are your favorite cultural expressions? Which movies, songs, novels, poems, museums, etc.?

Bruce Springsteen, a poet working in a popular form. Cat Stevens, whose music is the record of an authentic spiritual journey. Mythology and culture in general. The writings of Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung. Woody Guthrie. Star Wars.

Links to some of your favorite web-sites for creative inspiration?

Greasy Lake - a Great Bruce Springsteen Community ( - In-Depth Symbolic Star Wars Discussion ( Joseph Campbell Foundation Forums (


I'm a singer-songwriter ( http://www.PhilRo...­ ), on a very rewarding journey of following my bliss. Mythology, culture, dreams, and the ideas of Carl Jung nourish and sustain me, not only as an artist but foremost as a person.
