I was born in Boston but I ended up in the Southwest probably cos of my love of rocks like gemstones - If you are a rock lover like in minerals - check out my link.
I also love music - I was intent on learning guitar and being a big star. Well that didn''t happen (the big star part). After a semester at Berklee in the late sixties and bein a starvin'' street artist, I left school for years just traveling around always writing though. I did however find time to study guitar along the way with three great teachers, Ron Murray - Classical Guitarist, Tully Cathey - Incredible Guitarist and Alfred Street from Longy Conservatory. My first long gig was at the HoJo''s in Downtown Beantown with a beautiful singer - Mary Reed. Cat Stevens even came to listen. That was in 1970 - Wow time goes by. If anyone knows where Mary is-give her this address.
Traveling around gave me the opportunity to work with some people I might never have met like: Mark Robinson (Ca.), Cheryl Hodge, Karen Mercer (Co.), Alan Kaufman, Liz King (NC) to name a few. Cheryl Hodge sings on "She''s Become a Lady" and Susan Kelly sings on, "Changes in Love".
In 1986, I was fortunate enough to win the ACTS award for best collegiate songwriter of the year in 1986 for my song, "Just to Be". As fate would have it, they lost their funding and I lost interest in music.
But then in the late 90''s, I moved to New Mexico and started up recording all the material I had written over the years that I never had money for in my younger life (Do we ever have enough money or rocks for that matter?).
In my album, Come So Far, the selections range from material written from 1978 (Holding You Here), (Changes ...) to 2008 (At Christmas Time).
