I am a musician. I sing. I play. I compose. I arrange. Music is what I do. Mostly.
I was a low brass major but I also studied voice. I played euphonium in middle school but I learned how to play some trombone and, later, bass because I love jazz and I wanted to be involved.
But I also write. I am always thinking and I like to write. People have said so many kind things about things I have written that I decided to seek a wider audience. Perhaps you will find help, comfort, and inspiration in these words. Let me know!
