Music and teaching is my passion...
I want to make a difference in your life.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. My intent is for you to know me better than just seeing my face or hearing my voice on a CD. It has always been my passion to share my gifts and talents. My life is dedicated to creating valuable and exceptional content to empower others to live a rich and abundant life.
So…Let’s start at the beginning…
From a very early age, I felt the power that music had on me as I listened to certain songs. It felt as though these songs were written just for me, reflecting what was going on in my life. You may have had this experience as well. I had many favorite songs which I would sing until I wore myself and others out. Yet, I loved how it felt when I sang my favorites from my heart. I would connect with a place deep within me and let my defenses down as I experienced the joy and freedom of self-expression.
You see, music is a universal language. It is a language of its own. And through music’s language, I discovered who I am and how to empower others. Music’s effect was both inspirational and stimulating as each of my favorite songs seemed to serve a specific purpose. I loved the way how each song made me feel. There were songs about fulfilling hopes, dreams, love, relationships, money and success. This music created a desire within me to experience a life without limitations.
I remember regularly surfing the radio for a favorite song so I could hear it over and over again. I loved the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, the Police, and many other bands. These bands allowed me to connect with the spirit of the music as it created a magical feeling in me. Music still creates this magic in me today!
My friends were annoyed because of my obsession in wanting to hear my favorite songs over and over again. I would repeatedly change the station in search of songs such as "Whole Lotta Love", "Every Breath You Take", "Hey Jude", "Imagine", "You Are the Sunshine of My Life." These songs and so many others evoked hope as they opened heart to what is possible in life. I felt empowered and invincible. Inspired and motivated, I would sing with reckless abandon. I didn't care about what others thought. I instinctively knew that music had a powerful effect and could be used to awaken a sleeping giant within. I dreamed of writing this type of music and seeing it inspire and empower others just the way I had been.
My love of music began to open up many doors for me. I was blessed to be on the road with many famous bands such as Pink Floyd, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Blood Sweat and Tears, Edgar Winter and Johnny Winter. You can imagine how moved I was seeing thousands of people in a concert venue all acting as one and being inspired by the music. Everyone had a favorite song. I was hooked!
Stepping Into My Calling…
I was intrigued by how music could create a mindset that would change a listener's attitudes, release tension, stimulate the senses, initiate action, increase focus and clarity, as well as create ways to learn new habits. I saw how the power of music could actually transform a person's way of thinking and ultimately change their life.
I knew music would be my vehicle to communicate my inner passions and that I would share my passion with others through music. It would be a way of life. I was determined to create music that would be positive and empower people to live their dream. My lyrics would become the directions people could use to support them on their journey to success.
I was given the opportunity to put my beliefs about the power of music to practical use. I began by writing jingles. Jingles are powerful 30 and 60 second songs people hum incessantly. They powerfully influence their people’s attitudes about products. I saw how these little ditties would anchor an idea powerfully within the mind.
I wrote many great jiggles, such as, "Have You Driven a Ford Lately?" "The Club Med Vacation...The Antidote To Civilization”,"Nothing Works Like A Chevy Truck" Northwest Airlines "Some People Just Know How To Fly." Kodak "America's Storyteller" Pontiac "Montana", "Jeep There's Only One" and countless others.
I also worked with artists such as BB King, Issac Hayes, Tony Bennett, The Four Tops, The Average White Band, Keb Mo, The Staples Singers, Michael McDonald and Kim Carnes just to name a few.
These were amazing people who saw something in me and I was grateful to them for trusting me. As my work evolved, other Fortune 500 companies such as, Burger King, McDonalds, Citibank, General Motors, Chrysler, Olympus Cameras, Subway, Budweiser, Nike, Reebok, Coca Cola, Pepsi, ReMax, Polaroid, Goodyear and Wrigley's hired me to write music.
I WAS LIVING MY DREAM and I WAS REALLY GOOD AT IT...
I experienced first-hand how music can change the way a person thinks and feels, and I was paid a lot of money to do it!
I was one of the most sought after composers in my field of branded music and an expert in creating music to influence how someone thinks, feels and acts. My music was encouraging people to buy millions of dollars of product. However thus far, it wasn't fulfilling my desire to make a difference in other people's lives. I wanted to do more…to really make a difference in how someone could step into their success and create the life of their dreams.
My life was on auto-pilot. I was making unbelievable money and yet I knew there was more. How could I find it? It wasn't an easy ride for me. I was stuck in many areas of my life. I floundered in trying to find my voice. I lost sight of my purpose. I lost the connection with my passion to make a difference as I walked down the pain-filled road of addiction.
I failed in business and relationships as I fell into the deep darkness of addiction. I second-guessed myself, and felt unworthy. I was adrift in a sea of uncertainty. Despite all the success on the outside, there was a deep void on the inside.
I Was Human! Can You Relate?
Thank goodness, I found my way out of the pain. My recovery opened up a whole new world to me. I went to seminars, workshops, read countless books, meditated, joined mastermind groups, and even went to intense leadership camps. I was committed to doing the work and I would go wherever my heart told me to go in search of the wisdom to create a rich and fulfilling life.
This led to an awakening about how I could write songs about specific aspects of life and teach people to release their limiting beliefs. My music could provide new and positive success strategies so people could maintain new habits which were in alignment with their vision.
It Was Always the Music and the Belief I Could Make a Difference
that Brought Me Back to Life...
The songs I wrote would become a constant companion, providing inspiration and creating new ways to think about what was possible. My songs would open up the senses to infinite potential, if one stayed in a positive mindset. I would give the listener a sonic landscape where they could create a new vision for themselves.
To find my voice, I wrote song after song incorporating the teachings and mindsets I was learning. I experimented with the perfect combination of words and music to re-create the powerful and positive feelings I was experiencing. I found my voice to inspire, empower and motivate people to take action and live a full and rewarding life.
After I would listen to the songs, I would always feel better. In fact, I would play them for my friends and they would feel better too. It seemed like all of us were more motivated, had greater clarity and felt much more energy. We were enthusiastically able to tackle anything we chose to do. We had tons of inspiration and imagination. We felt powerful, as we sought new ways to express more of who we were.
I was empowering people to create a life of their dreams and to see everything as an opportunity. The messages were powerful and encouraging. Taking action became a direct result of listening to my songs. Deep inside me, I finally reconnected with that desire to make a difference in people’s lives. It was like I was part of their journey, walking a path with them. I became convinced that my songs could change how people went about their day, allowing them to create it in a positive way.
The Success Song Journey Begins…
I was now on a mission. How could I implement this brilliant idea to change lives for the better? Suddenly, it came to me while attending a seminar. I would write songs for all my friends in the personal empowerment business. So I created music for T. Harv Eker, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Robert Allen, Cynthia Kersey, John Assaraf, Chris and Janet Attwood, Paul Scheele, Marci Shimoff, Brendon Burchard and many others. Success Songs was born.
So Why Is Success Songs Different?
My experience showed me that most people fail to succeed due to not following through with an action plan. After being at many seminars, you probably have gotten excited and promised yourself to change based upon what you have learned. Or perhaps, you have taken a home study course which has great content but you haven’t followed through with the recommended action steps. Maybe you just need a jumpstart to your day. Your intentions are good but unfortunately you often don't have the support to keep you moving forward. So Success Songs was born out of my desire to create a way for lasting and beneficial change to happen.
Success Songs is:
• a fun and easy way to effortlessly to stay in action...
• an anchoring tool that instantly brings you back to a specific teaching that reinforces the message in your subconscious mind...
• a life-changing way to reprogram your mind through music...
• a simple and easy daily exercise to manifest the life you desire...
• a way of life...
So, if you want to release any limiting beliefs and fears about your ability to succeed, Success Songs is the ideal tool. You will gain more clarity and connect with your inner power to make your dreams your reality.
