About Me

I work for blues/jazz/gospel musician Karen Carroll as her BMI representative, promoter and editor. She is from the South side of Chicago who now resides in Germany. Karen recorded with Delmark for the most part, has over 12 Cd's in her discography and just released a new Cd as an indie artist. I find much joy in my work and Karen is marvelous. For the most part I am in the San Francisco Bay Area and I am blessed.
