Writing music has always been part of my life. I consider it a godsend, something I can always count on to express feelings that I find hard to talk about. Early on, I studied music at Marietta College and Peabody Conservatory. While in college I developed my passion for jazz and Broadway show tunes as the house pianist on the Becky Thatcher Riverboat. After college, I toured with L.A.'s #1 80's band, "The Twisters" and one of Hollywood's most pretentious glam bands "Joshua". More recently, as a member of the Central City Opera board of directors, I helped steer the organization to have a greater emphasis on American music theater. These experiences have influenced my own musical compositions in a most unexpected way.

WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) The Musical
WYSIWYG takes a modern twist on gender identity. April, a transgendered woman, is so anxious to live her secret life on the World Wide Web that she cannot enjoy here and now. While feelings and emotions expressed online are real, they remain hidden and elusive in the cold reality of our day to day lives; ironically, she does not fully exist in either world and fears she could die without ever having truly lived. Each character is drawn to the Internet to satisfy an irresistible urge to unleash their alter ego. Mark, a holistic therapist runs the Gender Identity Center where the characters meet for the first time. He uses various techniques to help the group find themselves and become more comfortable with who they really are. The musical is an intensely personal story that creates a pulsing conduit to the issues of self-revelation, love, sex, isolation, alienation and the human comic-drama of interpersonal dilemmas.
