You can find out more about my Songwriting career in the Backstory section!

I am attending Southern New Hampshire University and studying Communication with a Public Relations emphasis. With my love of promoting and Media Communications in Sports, Music, Film, and Business, I know I can be useful in those environments, working with companies and journalists.

I also love Photography and you can find my latest photos on Instagram via the link below.

My hobbies range from reading and learning more about Pop Culture, Punk as a Subculture and Music Scene, Golf, Country & Pop Music, and Local Travel. I write a column called “Redbird Country” where I give my insights about Midwestern Culture and Local Places of Interest (Bloomington-Normal, IL)

Another thing I’ve been working on lately is a series of stories that are based at Illinois State University. This is new for me – I’ve always wanted to write a storyline and create a Universe to write from and about but I just never took the time. I guess I had to live this long to figure out I could do it if I put my time and effort into it.

The name of the first of hopefully many stories is “The Psych Major,” and it’s the start of a Young Adult Mystery Series.

The main protagonist is a 21-year-old named Patrick Michaels who grew up in the Bloomington-Normal area, went to local schools, and attends ISU to study Psychology. He soon figures out what he really wants to do with his life through a series of small events that happen over his time in school. Watch for updates on that, I am really excited about this. The fun thing that has already happened is that I let the owner of Bobzbay, the local independent bookstore in town know I will be including her store in the book and she’s already saying I can hold a book signing there when I finish and publish! That’s pretty cool.

To Potential Co-writers:

It’s really important you know that the lyrics on this website are invitations for collaboration. They are not completely finished but they are inviting your manipulation to change as a co-writer and songwriter.

This is the way I write. This is me asking you to join me in finishing the songs.

You can find me on LinkedIn and please connect! I love expanding my network!
