Words and music have been at the center of my life for as long as I can remember.
There’s nothing more satisfying than composing a new song, playing it for someone for the first time, and getting a smile or a nod of approval.
Writing poems in high school was my very first form of creative writing. I was marketing myself to get the attention of girls. Since I didn’t get to be a sports star I made up for it with poems and my singing ability.
It worked like a charm…and more than 7% of the time. In fact I usually had something like a 98% approval rating. I couldn’t reach the coveted 100% mark because…well…No one can.
A few years after high school I became a professional musician. Yep, I got paid. Sometimes a lot. And I got paid to play for years until I decided I didn’t want to do it full time anymore. That’s when I returned to my first love…writing. Only this time, since I was married, I figured I’d better try something more lucrative than poems.
So I started writing and producing radio commercials. Then I learned copywriting which is simply writing for business, and I’ve been doing both of these for a long time. But now, it’s time to return once again to the first love(s)…words and music. I’ve made a commitment to go back to what I trained most of my life to do. Uh-huh…I finally figured out what I wanna be as I grow bolder (and older). And I’m not ashamed to call myself a Christian singer and a Christian writer.
I’ll be adding my social networking links shortly. And if you have an interest in Christian singers, songwriters, music, writing, and other ideas, I’d love to connect with you. So c’mon back as soon as you can. I’ll be here.
