Me smiling at piano, edited 11-8-21.jpg


I perform and compose jazz and classical piano music, write fiction, and have degrees in Ecology and Rhetoric.

My short story, "The Central String," has been published in the Ginosko Literary Journal.

Read the story on page 33 of the Fall 2021 issue.

The name "Ginosko" comes from a Greek word meaning recognition of truth from experience. My story fits with this theme, in that during the protagonist's younger years he focuses on the negative and does not appreciate his parents' love. Then life experience teaches him that love is the central string to which everything around it resonates.
