About
I'm a versatile multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter with decades of recording and performing experience. My primary instrument is guitar, but I'm also a good bass player and often start my songs with a funky bass line and a good beat. I use Ableton Live with the Push controller and Logic Pro X to realize my compositions. I write and produce alone and am capable of producing credible pieces of music this way, but to me, music needs to be cross-pollinated with other ideas or it just comes out sounding sterile. That's why I'm hoping to find a partner who is willing and able to bounce ideas back and forth, encourage each other and enhance each other's ideas. It also helps me to have a little extra pressure. Knowing that someone is waiting for me to do my bit is motivating. I have a full-time job and my days of dreaming of being a "rock star" are long over so I do this for the love of the music primarily. But if I could partner with someone more ambitious, who will take our labor and do something with it - perform it live with a band, inquire about publishing or sync placement opportunities - that would be ideal.

Songwriting Achievements:
I recorded a solo album in the late 90s that got positive reviews and some interest from an A&R guy at Sony 550 (now defunct). I also was a studio musician in L.A. in the mid-90s and co-wrote several pieces that appeared in local radio and TV spots, including a big band piece for the 76 gas station chain that ran in heavy rotation for about 6 weeks (very cool to be watching TV and have your ad come up!)

I've never submitted anything to a songwriting competition (I know, shame on me), so I don't have any of those kinds of awards, but of course I'm open to the idea.
Personal Songwriting Goals:
To produce work I can feel proud of for the rest of my life.
Collaboration Goals:
publishing deal, sync placement (film, TV, video games), niche/independent artist release, just for fun
