While working as a ballet accompanist at the Oklahoma Arts Institute, I was given the opportunity to perform for the students (OAI is multi-disciplinary -- there are students there studying ballet, modern dance, chorus, orchestra, acting, writing, filmmaking, photography, and drawing & painting). I asked Sheridan McMichael, a musical theatre performer who was working on crew, if he'd be willing to read the role of my "son" in a scene and he graciously agreed. Here we are, performing "No Part Of You" from my musical, DRIVE. Read more about DRIVE and all my musicals
In the studio with Jonathan Gordon recording my annual winter song, April 10, 2017
I had the great honor and pleasure of being selected to participate in the Johnny Mercer Writers Colony at Goodspeed Musicals in East Haddam, Connecticut for two weeks in January, 2017. It was a terrific experience and aside from getting the opportunity to work on my show, THE CLEARING, I also grew very close to the other writers there. On our final evening together, I presented them with this song and accompanying video that I created specifically for the occasion. To learn more about THE CLEARING, visit my Musicals page
