Joined 9 years ago from Connecticut
I'm an artist and writer working in Connecticut. Foremost, however, I am a husband and a father, but I've been writing constantly since I was fifteen.
Now I'm thirty.
I have many interests -- as we all believe we do -- several of which I write about when the mood strikes. Writing is a way for me to establish, concretely -- permanently -- my attitude, ideas and/or feelings at ANY given time. And the desire to write -- in my case -- wells up without notice and without general courtesy regarding the time of day or night.
I'll lose sleep to write consistently if the words are good enough; And I'll paint as long as my eyes will stay open.
When it comes to fiction, I focus on short stories and screenplays... Pumping, as it were, forever steadfast and straining -- pressurized through the veins of dramatic, psychological thrillers, tragic comedies and blood-letting horror. The value of these works tends to be secondary to the act of finishing them... 'Who cares if anyone does or does not like it -- it's done.'
My frequent and manic stabs into the weighty trunk of nonfiction find their marks with critical essays and topical articles addressing anything from music, to politics, religion and social issues.
I am also an active and working painter and photographer -- two areas I tend to try and marry with my writing whenever possible... Whether or not these marriages stay within a fifty percent failure rate is for you to decide.
Please, enjoy my work.

I've narrowed down the extensive recorded output of the great John Coltrane to ten essential albums that any jazz fan needs to have in their collection.
