About
I have been songwriting for over 40 years. I have had about 30 songs published and several recorded buy lesser-known recording artists.. I have won several song writing contests including lyric of the year in Song Witter magazine as well as several contests on Los angeles-based country music radio stations. I have written several jingles for Los Angeles Base radio talk show programs and studied for many years under iconic songwriter Jack Segal. I have written over 300 songs and I'm looking forward to possible collaboration with music writers.
