About Me

I got into jazz while in college in the early 1990s. As with other art forms (film, literature, painting, etc.) my interest followed a steady progression toward the avant-garde. I want to be jarred. I can--and do--enjoy work that follows a traditional line, but much of it feels flimsy beside the likes of James Joyce, Jean-Luc Godard and Cecil Taylor.

I am a former contributor to Jazz Inside Magazine, Cleveland Scene and Cleveland Free Times, and was the books columnist for Nectar Magazine. I am also the author of two novels, ”The Starlight Line” and “Friction.”
