About Me

Contact Me

I got into jazz while in college in the early 1990s. As with other art forms (film, literature, painting, etc.) my interest followed a steady progression toward the avant-garde. I want to be jarred. I can--and do--enjoy work that follows a traditional line, but much of it feels flimsy beside the likes of James Joyce, Jean-Luc Godard and Cecil Taylor.

I am a former contributor to Cleveland Scene Magazine and Jazz Inside Magazine, and was the books columnist for Nectar Magazine. A 2012 Creative Workforce Fellow in Literature in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, my fiction has appeared in various print and online journals. My debut novel, “The Starlight Line,” was published by Red Giant Books in August 2015.
