A skilled and savvy "top line" lyricist, I'm proficient in delivering a universal voice for creative briefs, TV/Film and stage productions. I've fine-tuned my craft by collaborating with numerous songwriters, composers, artists, and producers. My diverse catalog has been featured in Television, Film, Radio, and globally released recordings.
I've been commissioned to write for various music assignments, receiving industry honors from Billboard Magazine for “I Knew There Was a Song” and Travel Weekly Magazine for “Caribbean Cruise”. Embracing multiple genres including Pop, Rock, Dance, Adult Contemporary, Ballads, Folk, Americana, Country, R&B, Blues, Novelty and Children's Music, credits include Lifetime TV’s "Dance Moms" and the documentary “Unconditional Love: The AIDS Heartline Story”.
Over the years I've been an active member of various professional organizations: The National Academy of Songwriters, Los Angeles Songwriters Showcase, Nashville Songwriters International Association, Songsalive, Songwriters Vantage, SongNet, Los Angeles Songwriters Co-op, Just Plain Folks, SongTown, and Dramatists Guild of America.
I received my BA Music with minors in English and Business from the University of Redlands, California; I'm affiliated with BMI as a writer/publisher. "Green" passions for the environment, peace and social justice are reflected in songs "Wired", "Electricity", "This Peaceful", and "Union Man".
