Artist Statement

I’m not much for talking about what, how and why I create.
I just do. I seem to have to. And having done so I also feel
compelled to share this condition with others.

I am interested in words and music, together and separately,
this much is certain. And if I had a cause it would be the
promotion of poetry, aimed especially at younger readers.
And I wonder why the first art, the spoken word, has become
a minor art; but have no answers.
