I have been enamored with the written and spoken word since I was a child. I grew up in a house full of books. My parents instilled a love of reading in me at a very young age. I was given a piano shortly after my father passed away. I have been playing and writing songs ever since. After spending more than a decade in show business, I spent several years working in the advertising field. I then decided to become a teacher. I have more than 20 years of classroom experience that include several years teaching in third world countries. Recently, I returned to the United States and decided to devote my time entirely to writing and music. I am actively pursuing freelance assignments and I am committed to refining my skills as a writer.
