About Me

Writing is what I do. Its as necessary to me as breathing and eating. After more than 20 years of tap dancing in highly political corporate arenas, I opted out. As a freelance writer, I much prefer the freedom to choose my own topics and clients. The green paper may not be as abundant as it was when I sold my soul, but my stress level is practically non-existent and I have the time and energy to enjoy the things in life that matter--like music, nature, and the pursuit of happiness.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
