About
I'm a retired teacher and love to create songs. I've collaborated with several writers and always marveled at the process and the product. I lean toward pop, jazz, folk, and children's music, but am willing to try anything! I live on Long Island and look forward to meeting a co-writer from anywhere in the world. Currently, I write personalized songs for very sick children through the Songs of Love Foundation.
