Welcome to my world
You'll find a wide variety of material on this website; songs, essays, musicals, and fiction. In every case, though, I am telling stories. I hope you enjoy them.
Each song here is a story.
Whatever the subject matter, I'm trying to catch the listener's ear, heart, and mind with music.
Every kid should have moment in the spotlight. These musicals and operettas are perfect for that first stage experience.
Whether it's an essay, a piece of fiction, or a blog post, the goal is to tell a story that amuses and provokes the reader.

About my journey
I grew up in the Twin Cities, in a big, boisterous, musical family. Everyone sang - all the time - and I studied piano and violin throughout childhood. I majored in History at Princeton University, and I have a law degree from the University of Minnesota, but music has always been my avocation.
I've been extraordinarily lucky my whole life, in countless ways. But nothing compares to the luck I've had in meeting my wife and raising our three wonderful daughters.
