“Life is the open road”
Influenced by life, love and the pursuit of the perfect song is what best describes my passion. I’ve been a musician and story teller for most of my life but seriously began writing and performing as a student in high school. While there, I honed my chops in creative writing, music theory, choir and performing in 80’s hair metal bands. All the while keeping my goal to one thing: writing songs that cross barriers and mean something.
I’ve since discovered a more serious writing muse within myself and have been putting “pen to paper” as the mood strikes (which seems to be more and more frequently). I tend to write about a lot of different topics but get my biggest joy in getting to re-live the experiences I’ve had growing up in a small town and poking fun at myself.
I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing artists and musicians about their own projects and passions. You can read my Guitar World articles by clicking here.
I’ve also recently published my first children’s book and am hard at work on my first novel. Everything a day at a time. To me, it’s spiritual catharsis.
