BIOGRAPHY

I am a singer song-writer from New Jersey and spend lots of time running along and through New Jersey rivers, forests, and farmland. In 2008 I fell into the South Branch of the Raritan River while taping the sounds of water under ice. In 2009 I fell on the trail while following a pumpkin moon. Years ago I played tambourine with Rahsaan Roland Kirk and kissed Bonnie Raitt (not at the same time). Memories like these find their way into my songs.
