Music reminds me of what I wanted to be 

100 GIGS

After many years working in the film and television business, a few years ago I decided to get back to performing music. I was just a little rusty. So in March, 2014, a friend (thanks, Todd!) challenged me to perform 100 gigs by the end of the year. I accepted the challenge. My goal was simple – to learn as much as I could from every gig.


I started with a long list of questions. For example, did I enjoy performing by myself or with others? On what instruments did I enjoy playing my songs – piano or guitar? Which songs did I enjoy sharing and why? What performing situations meant the most to me – busking on a neighborhood street or performing in a venue? And of course, should I wear a hat or not? Yes!

Gig by gig, I learned how to become a better performer. As I shared my music with an amazingly supportive worldwide musical community, I learned something else. Making music is always better shared! Here are some pictures of my journey of 100 gigs! It was so much fun, I think I'll do it again soon!

It was a windy night at the Encino Soapbox Sessions open mic. So cold I had to borrow someone's jacket. Along the way, I learned that when you're at a gig - you stand and deliver no matter what!
