Hello! I am a NJ-based singer-songwriter with over twenty years' composing, recording, and performing experience. I have self-released five albums of original material with a sixth in the works. Print-wise, I have published three paperbacks and one e-book, several of my writings having appeared in lit-zines across the web. An English teacher by vocation, I place a premium on songcraft and, particularly, lyric-writing. My mentors are Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, John Lennon, Chuck Berry, Warren Zevon, Neil Young, Tom Waits, David Byrne, Richard Thompson, Lou Reed, Bruce Springsteen, Roger Waters, Neil Peart, Fish, Sting, Jim Morrison, and John Prine.
