About Me

“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 storyteller 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.

In 2011 I discovered a more serious writing muse within myself and have since been putting pen to paper as the mood strikes, which these days seems to happen more and more frequently. I tend to write about a lot of different topics, but get my biggest joy in reliving the experiences I’ve had growing up in a small town and poking fun at myself. I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing some of the biggest names in the world of entertainment about their own projects and passions. You can read my Guitar World articles by clicking here and my Morning Call articles here.

I’ve also self-published three children’s books and my debut novella, “Neapolitan Sky”, which you can read more about here. Everything a day at a time. To me, it’s spiritual catharsis.

  1. i never really knew you jim …i’m starting to get the picture ,you are very interesting …so not like your brother !

  2. Finding a post about your Survivor article on the Survivor FB page broght me here. Being a rocker from “back in the day” and even before I have to admit, I just love reading about other people sharing the same journey in the search for music to ‘free your soul.’ Loved the post.

    Then I saw your pierogi (we never used the extra “e” at the end) post…and had to laugh. A staple of my life, even today. But we have a lot of homemade ones around here, quite different from Mrs. T’s.

    Look forward to reading more of your observations. And as I like to say…the joy’s in the ride.

  3. Dear James,
    I’m a journalist from Los Angeles… I write for Rock Bands of L.A. com.. I saw your interview with Scott Holiday and he’s probably the best guitarist to come out of L.A. since Eddie and Slash…check out our piece and hopefully we can share bands we like.
