Having spent much of my life juggling my love of writing and my passion for music, I finally came to the realization that I could make professional commitments to both. I’m thrilled that with Words & Music, I have the chance to work (and play!) with words and to be involved in projects with some incredibly talented musicians. A short version of what I’m doing these days is presented in these pages. The longer version includes award-winning copy, audio production for radio, television and music, graduate degrees in communications, world music and creative writing (these days, I’m also world’s oldest PhD student), and a lifetime of improbable adventures. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
