I was in my first play when I was six. I later did my first school tour when I was eleven. I was a mime. Don't ask.
I went on to tour schools throughout California as an actor/singer with the Imagination Company and with the City of Oakland's Clownmobile, getting to stay at the best Motel 6 motels west of the Mississippi.
I joined my first garage band when I was a sophomore in high school. I played bass and sang off key. (That was before studying voice with Judy Davis. God rest her soul, and God bless her!)
I've had a lot of jobs, from being a singing telegram messenger, to waiting tables. I often think that it would have been easier and cheaper for me to have had a crack habit than to do this singer/songwriter thang.
On the brighter side, I've done lecture/performances at colleges and universities including: Harvard, Columbia, Wellesley, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, Barnard, New College of California, Phillips Academy at Andover, and New York University, to name a few, and have been put up at real hotels with room service!
I've been lucky enough to have played various venues including: Borders Books and Music, and the Cosmopolitan Club in Boston, MA; Freight and Salvage, and La Pena in Berkeley, CA; Joe's Pub, Cobi's Place, the Cutting Room, Walker Space, Present Company Theatorium, Bowery Bar, the New York Public Library Theatre in Flushing, the Lower East Side Tenenment Museum Theatre, AIR Gallery, Phoenix Gallery, and the Slipper Room, in New York, NY.
