Basically, just another lad from Western Pennsylvania. After years as a musician, child care worker, farm hand, freelance writer, stage hand and graduate student, I began a career in New York Advertising. After 12 years or so, I was imported to Texas where I finally founded a consulting firm. As I entered my mid life crisis, I went back to my creative ways and have published a non-fiction book, a book of poetry and a novel. I also went back to music - adding mandolin, fiddle, viola & lap steel to piano, guitar and banjo as my instruments of preference. During the past year or two, my songwriting muse has been encouraging me to crank out a variety of songs. That is not to say that my business life is over - I recently became Chairman of the Board of TAG Media Network, an Indian media company.
