I've been in bands since 1993 and absolutely love the creative process. Playing out live isn't so bad either, but my true passion is the art and science of songwriting. My long term goal is to acheive a level of commercial success in music (as songwriter, producer, or performer) that can be self-supporting financially and still true to my artistic principles. I continue to chase this dream and am enjoying the journey. But, I haven't quit my day job just yet.

For me it's all about writing songs that connect with people emotionally using fresh, creative music and lyrics that people can relate to. I enjoy a wide variety of styles of music, but my preference is indie-rock and alt-rock.

I enjoy working with others in bands and also one-on-one. I've learned alot about what to do and what not to do, and I continue to learn more each day.

I've been fortunate enough to write, record and perform with some very talented musicians and amazing people. Currently I'm songwriting on my own and also doing some collaborating with friends. You can link to my myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/mintchipspaceship.
