When I was young I worked in my father's neighborhood record shop in New York City. We had the biggest 45 collection in Brooklyn. I've been around recordings and media as far back as I can remember. When I was too young I lost my mother to cancer. When she passed away I vowed to make something positive out of the loss. I turned to writing. So in college I transformed my writing into a successful musical Kaleidoscope Grey at The Evergreen State College, the show finished off with a bang and closed on May 18, 1980. The same day Mt. St Helen's erupted for the first time!
