AS WRITER:

The majority of my writing has been directed towards creative improvised music and some mainstream jazz. I have written articles on recordings for fifty or so record companies, articles on concerts, book reviews, editorials and Musician Profiles. My focus turned to my visual art in 2012 when the CrossMackenzie Gallery began to represent me.
