I have spent my entire life as a musician: pianist, bandleader, educator, songwriter, storyteller/humorist. I am still extremely active in music. My collaborator, Maria DeAngelis is a talented lyricist and vocalist. We've written over 100 songs and placed some of them in movies and network television as background music. I have six albums of standards on cdbaby.com. They have created much interest. Still going strong at age 80.
