Here’s A Short Version of Me And My Life

I’ve written words and music and used my voice to make a living for most of my life. Tens of thousands of families have enjoyed my live shows. Many of my 20 books and scores of songs can be found in homes all across America and in a variety of other countries. My words, music, and voice production can be heard daily on radio, on-hold systems, and websites…and weekly on my Rhyme and Reason Podcast.

My journey into writing words and music began with a Bic pen, a stack of spiral notebooks, and my mom’s very old upright piano with only 2 decent octaves.

After auditions and lots of free live performances, I transitioned my singer songwriter skills into full-time pro work for many years. During some of that time (and since) I wrote and produced jingles for radio commercials. Somewhere in the middle of all that I got married to Elgielene, probably the only woman in the world who could have made it through almost 27 years with me. We didn’t experience the blessing of children, but like I always point out…we have two Labrador Retrievers who look like me. The four of us currently enjoy our little 100 year old bungalow here in the shadow of Pike’s Peak in Colorado.

I also spent three years as the music minister of a church in Denver, Colorado, studied with A-list copywriters, and began building WordPress websites and producing promo videos.

And you can hire me to put all that words, music, and voice experience to work for you. I’d love to help you expand your reach and build your audience with ads, books, commercials, podcasts, videos, and website content. And I’ve got a special offer for you. When you join my Rhyme and Reason Club, I’ll send  some free music and a free book for your kids to your inbox right away.

So what do you say? Let’s get going!
