I started out wanting to be a rock star but, fortunately for all concerned, realized fairly early on that songwriting and producing were what I really craved. I have had multiple nominations for Oscars, Grammies and Golden Globes and hits with songs such as “Run To You” by Whitney Houston, “I Don’t Have The Heart” by James Ingram and “For The First Time” by Kenny Loggins. I’ve written for and worked with artists ranging from Barbra Streisand to Rod Stewart to Ray Charles to, most recently, Charice and Toni Braxton. I write, arrange, engineer and produce for myself and other artists, from mega-stars to “just starting outs”. I consult with aspiring writers and artists and speak on songwriting and the music business. Welcome to my home!
