Personal Statement
I love my work, even though I am semi-retired. I love being able to meet with people half way around the world via text, Skype, email, etc. Having an extensive background as a professional musician helps many people here in the entertainment business. If you find yourself working with the self-employed folks out there in our community, please feel free to call me to consult. Their lives are truly different, and cause struggles and mental problems not covered anywhere in the DSM.
