About
I've always written lyrics, stories, screenplays, and to an extent, composed music from a young age. I've always thought that words would be my career, but life got in the way. I especially find it tantalizing, exciting, and fulfilling to write to others' music, whether fully structured or just licks, or bits and pieces. I often feel the vibe of where and why the music came into being and write accordingly. Sax and piano sound like voices straining out words to me. I play piano poorly, and guitar even worse! So I'm searching for a singer/songwriter or aspiring mainstream musician to collaborate with and create some memories. Country is calling to me lately.

Songwriting Achievements:
I have a lot of songs written without music in different genres. My screenwriting has seen strong finishes in industry writing competitions. One of my screenplays, an animated feature written back in class at UCLA (around the same time Disney was just bringing out Beauty and the Beast), has all original music and songs written by me. Again, life got in the way and I've never followed my heart and dream. Seems like now would be a great time to find some great friends and people to share and work with.
Personal Songwriting Goals:
Write mainstream country / soft rock
Collaboration Goals:
publishing deal, mainstream artist release, niche/independent artist release
