|Bio:||I once wrote to a nephew, "Always remember, It's all about the music!" From my earliest memories that could not be more true. The sound of the kitchen radio first thing in the morning before school to the transistor radio tucked under my pillow at night. (It would eventually fall to the floor not pleasing my older brothers who shared the room) North Jersey born and bred music continues to play a major role. It's not that I am particularly good at it, which I am not and never have been, but for the visceral joy it brings me. In my careers as a counselor, teacher, volunteer sharing has been my mantra. "It's all about the music."
